August 10, 2022: Fire Season Air Quality
Fire season has started, bringing poor air quality with it. During this time, you may have many questions about working in smoky conditions. A Smoke Event FAQ is available to cover some of the most common concerns. The page includes links to understanding the air quality index (AQI) values and other important information. For additional information, please contact EHS at 208-885-6524 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What training do I need?
Because we are frequently asked about our training courses and how to know which courses a particular person or job may need, we have prepared a matrix for supervisors to use as a guide in determining training. Based on answers to a list of questions, a training profile can be developed for each job. The matrix is intended as a starting point, and all of our general training must be accompanied by job/task-specific training from the supervisor or designee. Our website provides supplementary written materials on many topics, and we can provide supervisors with individual assistance upon request.
