Summer Internship Opportunity

C. Burns, Alaska Chadux Corporation
Contract Term: 04/01/14 – 12/30/14
Award: $15,000

Scope of Work:

The Alaska Chadux Corporation (ACC) intends to host an intern from June 15, 2014 until November 15, 2014. This person will be recruited from outside the oil spill response industry(i. ea student looking to enter the field or an individual looking to change careers). Chadux will provide training and work experience to introduce the intern to several elements of the response industry including planning, incident management, response logistics, response tactics, safety, and environmental issues. The overall objective of this internship is to recruit an individual into the response industry and provide them with the basic qualifications to work as a spill response technician in the state of Alaska. This includes appropriate training under OSHA’s Hazard Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standard (29 CFR 1910. 120) and training and handson experience with standard marine spill response equipment. Since onwater response activities are only a small part of spill response, this internship is intended to expose the individual to all elements of the response process. Individuals will receive accredited incident management training, learn to develop and promote a safe working environment, and have an opportunity to receive logistics training. The end result of the internship should be an individual with a broad background in incident response who could fill a variety of roles during a spill response.
