Accuworx was requested by the Peruvian government to share our training systems and Emergency Response (E/R) best practices with hazardous materials responders, publically and privately employed, in Peru, South America. Logan Barrett, Accuworx Emergency Response Manager, has been deployed twice in the 2015 to train local response organizations in various mitigation strategies.
Accuworx’s E/R best practices were shared with more than 400 responders from various Peruvian organizations. Our goal was to educate the E/R experts in Peru with tools that can be used in a wide variety of situations. Our program was presented over two courses: “Fundamentals of Hazardous Materials Response” and “Response Health and Safety”; which showcased a broad view of different techniques used within the industry to tackle various emergency response tasks.
Accuworx has been moving to become an industry leader in Peru and larger South America, in order to service the booming natural resource sector that is expanding rapidly in the area.
With our response crews on the ground, the Accuworx team is working diligently with private and federal stakeholders to improve the state of hazardous materials response and environmental remediation in the country.
