Summary of Recent Relevant Research:

At the Atlantic OSHA Training Center and Hazardous Materials Worker Education Program located at the Toxicology Research Center, we have for 16 years provided training to the personnel who respond to the emergencies and disasters resulting from extreme events. We develop and provide training to the emergency responders who work at the incident and to the workers who clean up after the incident. We have developed and conducted training courses to provide healthcare facility personnel the skills needed to deal safely with the casualties who will arrive at our healthcare facilities.
