At the very minimum, your staff will require the "awareness" to respond to a spill by alerting others and cordoning off the area. If the staff will respond to a spill and that response requires Level C PPE, they will require "technician" level training. The only caveat that I would add is that if your lab has "exotic" chemicals or significant quantities of pyrophoric or extremely reactive chemicals, then additional training AND drills would be prudent.

>I would be interested in knowing what level of hazardous waste training people have who are responsible for chemical hygiene at their schools. It is not clear to me what level OSHA would require in order to respond to potential releases in labs, stockrooms, etc. I would mention that I would not anticipate major releases at our level of operations.
