All-Hazards Resources

The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) and its grant recipients have provided technical assistance and safety training to workers involved in disaster response and recovery activities for more than 15 years. This page contains resources aimed at protecting the health and safety of those who may be involved in responding to a wide variety of natural or man-made disasters and emergencies, including emergency responders, skilled support personnel, homeowners, and business owners.

Training Resources

The National Clearinghouse creates training tools to aid in the development of awareness-level courses or other awareness-level materials. These tools provide health and safety guidance to those involved in disaster response and cleanup activities. Companion booklets are pocket guides that can be distributed with the training and used as a resource when workers are on a disaster site. To order hard copies of these booklets, please complete the Booklet Order Form.
