On the heals of the very successful CER Training at the ICWUC Health and Education Center in early October 2015 the National COSH is sending two of it's network of trainers to Cincinnati, OH to take the upcoming Disaster Train-the-Trainer training session. This is a 40 hour course and will allow them to certify trainers on disaster situations. One of the trainers being sent is from WisCOSH.
Since 1987, the International Chemical Workers Union Council (ICWUC) Center for Worker Health and Safety Education in Cincinnati, Ohio, and its nine-member union-based Consortium have built a nationally-recognized hazardous materials training program. The ICWUC continues its national multiunion training program to protect a range of collateral duty emergency responders and disaster workers, to protect thousands of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) workers who are daily exposed to a wide variety of hazardous substances, and to develop a cadre of worker trainers.
