HAZWOPER TRAINING PROGRAMS
40hr HAZWOPER Training
OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER course provides in-depth training on how to perform post-emergency response activities and cleanups/remediation at industrial sites, Superfund and RCRA corrective action sites, and voluntary cleanups involving hazardous substances. Training includes hazard recognition, exposure limits and risk evaluation for chemical and general site safety concerns. You will review the technology and methods available to monitor and detect hazardous materials, learn how to control and contain chemical spills, establish a decontamination process, and select and use worker protective equipment, among a wide variety of other subjects.
Students who take this HAZWOPER training entirely are those workers who will receive follow-up instruction with site-specific equipment training conducted by their employer, or those who require 40-hour HAZWOPER training but will not use any equipment on the work site.
It should be noted that the 40 Hour HAZWOPER training does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment available to the HAZWOPER worker. On-site, job-specific equipment training provided by the employer is essential to fulfill the HAZWOPER requirement.
8HR HAZWOPER Refresher
HAZWOPER 8-Hour Refresher course covers: an overview of the HAZWOPER regulation, recent HAZWOPER developments, rules for a well-designed safety and health program, information about recognizing hazards, methods for controlling workplace hazards, information on PPE, rules and tools for monitoring hazards and conducting medical surveillance, confined space entry procedures, decontamination and emergency response procedures, and site-specific requirements.
This refresher course is intended ONLY for those who have already completed the 40-hour or 24-hour HAZWOPER training.
8hr HAZWOPER SUPERVISOR
This HAZWOPER training course is built for managers or supervisors of site workers described in 29 CFR 1910.120 paragraph (e), who work at “uncontrolled hazardous waste sites” like Superfund sites or other hazardous substance cleanup sites. This course may be used to help satisfy initial HAZWOPER training mandates at 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(4) and (e)(8).
8HR CONFINED SPACE
The Confined Space course is designed to educate students in the safe practices and responsibilities of the entrant, entry attendant, and supervisor when working with confined spaces. Key topic include general requirements of the OSHA standard, employer's responsibility to individuals working in confined spaces, confined space recognition, requirements for entry, atmospheric hazards, physical hazards, personal protective equipment and regulatory requirements.
8hr DOT HAZMAT
The Department of Transportation (49 CFR 172.704) makes training mandatory for almost anyone who handles hazardous materials, regardless of the amount. This affects employees who select or fill hazardous materials packages, label containers, complete shipping papers, load or unload vehicles, transload hazardous materials, or operate vehicles used in the transport of hazardous materials. This course meets both your initial and recurrent training requirements.
2hr Hazard Communication Program
The purpose of this section is to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are classified, and that information concerning the classified hazards is transmitted to employers and employees. The requirements of this section are intended to be consistent with the provisions of the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), Revision 3. The transmittal of information is to be accomplished by means of comprehensive hazard communication programs, which are to include container labeling and other forms of warning, safety data sheets and employee training.
