R. M. Technologies provides comprehensive safety training programs for both operating engineers and management personnel. The course will encompass physical properties of anhydrous ammonia and/or aqua ammonia, review of material safety data sheet, personal protective equipment, customer’s storage system, delivery and operating procedures, system maintenance, regulatory requirements, emergency situations and response. Other topics of interest can be customized to fit the application. We further offer 24-hour emergency response and annual refresher courses. Upon successful completion of the course, client's personnel will be certified as Hazardous Material Technician and should posses the necessary tools and knowledge to respond to a hazardous material release. This training will meet the requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120. Our program will incorporate additional technical and operational training on the customers system, which will further complement your in-house training program. This additional training provides you with the proper documentation to meet the training guidelines as set-forth in OSHA’s PSM and EPA’s RMP. The Hazardous material Technician course is designed for individuals who respond to releases for the purpose of stopping or mitigating a release. Unlike the operations level, they generally assume a more aggressive role in that they are often able to approach the point of a release in order to plug, patch, or otherwise stop the release of a hazardous material. Hazardous materials technicians are required to have received at least 24 hours of training equal to the First Responder – Operations level and have competency in the established skills.
