Prepare skilled support personnel.

The duties of skilled support personnel are described in Table 1, Roles and Duties of Emergency Responders.
(1) The employer must make sure that their skilled support personnel (including those employees who are not regularly employed by you) who could be exposed to on-scene hazards are given an initial briefing at the site before they participate in any emergency response. The initial briefing must include:
(a) What chemical hazards are involved;
(b) What duties are to be performed;
(c) Instruction in the wearing of appropriate personal protective equipment.
Skilled support personnel do not need to comply with the other training requirements of this section.
(2) The employer must make sure the safety and health precautions given to your employees are also given to skilled support personnel.
