OSHA Disaster Site Worker (DSW) training states disasters start and end in the community where the DSW will work.  This training program deploys the latest technology and human resources to work safely at Disaster Sites and to help the victims recover at the community where the disaster begins and ends.

Call us at (800) 275-8239 to discuss what options we can provide to help you best utilize your security, emergency preparedness or disaster preparedness financial resources.


If your a Site Supervisor or Site Safety Officer you may want to look at this link.  Come back please. 

Supervising Disaster Tip

We have a long way to go to truly be prepared for another major disaster like Hurricane Katrina.  It takes environmental specialist and construction workers with DSW or equivalent training.  It's work in this day and age that those type of companies do that help America recover.  Those companies need to have many business items in place before putting workers in the field to be certified a DSW such as training, funding and basic survival such as food and lodging.  During times when those services are not needed budgets are stretched thin there are pre-disaster reductions in force and equipment has to be maintained or purchased.  It takes time to mobilize all of this and the Private Sector simply can't afford to keep on staff equipment and personnel so when a disaster happens it often will take time to ensure funds are there to do the work.  We realize that the disaster site workers need good training and a sharp awareness of teamwork, construction techniques, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) awareness and their role reporting to their line Supervisor to stay safe.

Our mission is to provide professional DSW short 16 hour courses getting employee's ready to do the work to assist those in need for humanitarian relief, assisting other federal agencies, and protecting the environment.

We do this by training the DSW to: Report to their Supervisor, All types of Hazard Recognition, Use Professional Judgment, Deal with Chemical, Biohazards, WMD, in construction safety, and HAZWOPER skills or Disaster Site Worker training.

If you are a company we can train you so that you can understand the business or your clients.  If you are an individual call we will train you, the training is valuable.  We are not an employment agency or school with a placement service.  We provide short professional courses like the Disaster Site Worker course which is not OSHA mandated.  The Hazardous Waste and Emergency Response Course is OSHA mandated for working while employed with Dangerous Chemicals, Fire, Explosions that could because of possibility of serious injury or death.  Hurricane Katrina for example is a National Disaster not regulated by OSHA until it is downgraded then OSHA has authority.

In addition, the http://www.niehs.nih.gov/ is reaching out to this sector in construction and OSHA and others to get more people involved with the Disaster Site Work Program.  For more information on sharing your funding with us at Chicago Safety Institute or NIEHS.

Furthermore, OSHA has taken a new position recommending now DSW training allows issuing a Disaster Site Worker Certification after an OSHA 10 Hour Class for construction.

In addition, we have established an effective national framework to develop and provide comprehensive training that is needed to address Superfund cleanups, chemical emergency responses, RCRA corrective actions, and environmental restoration in urban communities surrounding Brownfield's sites.  Funding and charities must be available to bring in help from the public sector or private sector when the infrastructure is destroyed (the basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of a community or society, such as transportation and communications systems, water and power lines, and public institutions including schools, post offices, and prisons).

Disaster Site Worker

The pre-requisite is that the worker must have OSHA Ten Hour training and be medically qualified to wear a respirator.  This is a two day, Instructors Approved By OSHA Train The Trainer, performance based training not available online, trainees must demonstrate to an instructor their skills as specified in disaster recovery techniques, knowledge of chemical hazards, Biohazards, Weapons Of Mass Destruction (WMD), Air-Purifying respirator training and OSHA recommended curriculum,  and interpretations.  It includes many things that are related to disasters that can fall anywhere at anytime, we do not currently advise or  endorse any online training for Disaster Site Workers. This program is a pre-requisite for "The OSHA Program Card".

Why do workers need this training like the OSHA Program Card the chemical side of disasters? It is now the trend of the response industry for specialization and qualifying employees.

 Can you name some types of Disasters?

We can and will go through it all, even Katrina! BP Oil SPill Macando 252 Deepwater Horizon, Hurricane Charlie is a Disaster, so was the World trade Tower attack, the anthrax terrorism, Times Beach, Mo., The Chicago Fire and many more. Do you know what a TIC is? Participants learn about hazards, to operate under the latest and greatest Incident Command System and their supervisor.  They also learn how to deal with trauma types of events.  Some of these events such as Earthquakes, floods, Energetic or explosions often destroy building or infrastructure and large numbers of craftsmen and trades have to work on the Disaster.  For example road repair where and the Department of Transportation (DOT) has to deal with the matter by having workers repair the damage. Their is much more call today our representative will explain and provide you with the information you need to take the training.

Private Sector

DHS and NRP primary and support agencies coordinate with the private sector to effectively share information, form courses of action, and incorporate available resources to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from Incidents of National Significance.  Further, the Secretary of Homeland Security utilizes a private-sector advisory group with broad representation to provide advice on incident management and emergency response issues impacting their stakeholders.  Roles: The roles, responsibilities, and participation of the private sector during Incidents of National

Significance vary based on the nature of the organization and the type and impact of the incident. The roles of private-sector organizations are summarized below.


Impacted Organization or Infrastructure

Private-sector organizations may be affected by direct or indirect consequences of the incident, including privately owned critical infrastructure, key resources, and those main private-sector organizations that are significant to local, regional, and national economic recovery from the incident. Examples of privately owned infrastructure include transportation, telecommunications, private utilities, financial institutions, and hospitals.


Response Resource

Private-sector organizations provide response resources (donated or compensated) during an incident—including specialized teams, equipment, and advanced technologies —through local public-private emergency plans, mutual aid agreements, or incident specific requests from government and private-sector-volunteered initiatives.


Regulated and/or Responsible Party

Owners/operators of certain regulated facilities or hazardous operations may bear responsibilities under the law for preparing for and preventing incidents from occurring, and responding to an incident once it occurs. For example, Federal regulations require owners/operators of Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)-regulated nuclear facilities and activities to maintain emergency (incident) preparedness plans, procedures, and facilities and to perform assessments, prompt notifications, and training for a response to an incident.


State/Local Emergency Organization Member

Private-sector organizations may serve as an active partner in local and State emergency preparedness and response organizations and activities.


Responsibilities: Private-sector organizations support the National Response Plan (NRP) (voluntarily or to comply with applicable laws and regulations) by sharing information with the government, identifying risks, performing vulnerability assessments, developing emergency response and business continuity plans, enhancing their overall readiness, implementing appropriate prevention and protection programs, and donating or otherwise providing goods and services through contractual arrangement or government purchases to assist in response to and recovery from an incident.  Certain organizations are required by existing law and regulation to bear the cost of planning and response to incidents, regardless of cause. In the case of an Incident of National Significance, these private-sector organizations are expected to mobilize and employ the resources necessary and available in accordance with their plans to address the consequences of incidents at their own facilities or incidents for which they are otherwise responsible.

Response Resources: Unless the response role is inherently governmental (e.g., law enforcement, etc.), private-sector organizations are encouraged to develop and maintain capabilities to respond to and manage a complete spectrum of incidents and emergencies. The Federal Government maintains ongoing interaction with the critical infrastructure and key resources industries to provide coordination for prevention,  preparedness, response, and recovery activities. When practical, or when required under Federal law, private-sector representatives should be included in planning and exercises. The government may, in some cases, direct private-sector response resources when they have contractual relationships, using government funds.  Through the Defense Production Act of 1950, 64 Stat.798 (1950), as amended, and the Homeland Security Act, DHS has the authority to redirect production and distribution of certain response and incident management resources.

Functional Coordination: The primary agency(ies) for each ESF maintains working relations with its associated private-sector counterparts through partnership committees or other means (e.g., ESF #2, Communications – telecommunications industry; ESF #10, Oil and Hazardous Materials Response – oil and hazardous materials industries; etc.).

Citizen Involvement

Strong partnerships with citizen groups and organizations provide support for incident management prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. The U.S. Citizen Corps brings these groups together and focuses efforts of individuals through education, training, and volunteer service to help make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to address the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds.  Local Citizen Corps Councils implement Citizen Corps programs, which include Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Medical Reserve Corps, Neighborhood Watch, Volunteers in Police Service, and the affiliate programs; provide opportunities for special skills and interests; develop targeted outreach for special-needs groups; and organize special projects and community events.  Citizen Corps Affiliate Programs expand the resources  and materials available to States and local communities through partnerships with programs and organizations that offer resources for public education, outreach, and training; represent volunteers interested in helping to make their communities safer; or offer volunteer service opportunities to support first responders, disaster relief activities, and community safety efforts.  Other programs unaffiliated with Citizen Corps also provide organized citizen involvement opportunities in support of Federal response to major disasters and events of national significance. One example is the National Animal Health Emergency Response Corps (NAHERC), which helps protect public health by providing a ready reserve of private and State animal health technicians and veterinarians to combat threats to U.S. livestock and poultry in the event of a large outbreak of a foreign animal disease.

Citizen Corps: The Citizen Corps works through a national network of State, local, and tribal Citizen Corps Councils, which bring together leaders from law enforcement, fire, emergency medical and other emergency management, volunteer organizations, local elected officials, the private sector, and other community stakeholders.
