Our HAZWOPER training is designed to ensure workers know the proper procedure when dealing with hazardous materials, know proper emergency response methods and understand the necessary safety procedures.
Overview: HAZWOPER Training
Training requirements vary depending on a workers specific duties and involvement with site activities. All training requirements intend to satisfy the requirements set forth in the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.120, which applies to hazardous waste and health hazard workers and supervisors.
In order to maintain high safety standards and proper hazardous material handling, workers that participate in handling toxic materials regularly, as well as workers that only occasionally visit a site, must fulfill the requirements of OSHA approved training.
As noted at the bottom of this page, additional on-site training may be required as a compliment to your online coursework. Once you have completed all coursework, you will receive a certificate of completion that you will need to keep on file.
