The Hazwoper 40-Hour Training Course is a comprehensive curriculum that reviews a variety of topics that relate to Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER). It is typically for employees that may be in touch with Hazardous materials on a regular basis about permissible exposure limits (PELs). The course goes into details regarding site characterization, hazardous chemicals, radiation hazards, personal protective equipment (PPE), and decontamination methods. In addition this advanced course will cover best practices for safely handling and responding to emergencies that involve hazardous waste. Plus, you'll increase your knowledge about OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3) standards.
This training is for employees that work with or near hazardous materials under permissible exposure limits (PELs). Encountering hazardous waste and materials on a regular basis can be harmful if not handled correctly. This is true for everyday, common products and solutions are considered hazardous, including paint, solvents, asbestos, and pesticides. This 24-Hour HAZWOPER course instructs students on basic safety principles, even with limited exposure to these substances. Additionally, the course gives you a thorough understanding of OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3).
This annual training is provided for employees that remove hazardous wastes or are exposed to hazardous substances at their job. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 mandates annual Hazwoper topical material in such positions. With this course, you’ll get an overview of a variety of topics, such as personal protective equipment, decontamination, confined space entry, medical surveillance, and standard emergency procedures. You will also learn how to recognize hazards to ensure you’re prepared to respond to dangerous conditions. This training serves as an annual refresher for all employees, regardless of whether or not you previously completed 40-Hour or 24-Hour HAZWOPER training.
