40-Hour HAZWOPER Online Training
What is 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training?
Before you can enter or start work on an uncontrolled hazardous waste operation, you need to learn how to stay safe while handling dangerous chemicals.
This course is part of our HAZWOPER online training category. Our comprehensive online 40-Hour HAZWOPER course reviews a variety of topics that relate to Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER), including site characterization, hazardous chemicals, radiation hazards, personal protective equipment (PPE), and decontamination methods.
Additionally, this course teaches you about 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.
The training also includes a module that reviews the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) so that you’re compliant with OSHA’s 2013 updates to the Hazardous Communication Standard.
Who Needs 40-Hour HAZWOPER Online Training?
Most workers who are new to uncontrolled hazardous waste or emergency response operations are required to complete 40 hours of HAZWOPER training. This includes general site workers (such as laborers and equipment operators) and on-site management and supervisors.
Our 40-Hour training course is ideal if you are exposed (or potentially exposed) to hazardous waste and substances at work. Particularly, the training is a must if you’re an emergency responder or you clean, store, dispose, or treat hazardous materials.
Also, depending on specific safety standards, if you’re involved in hazardous waste operations or emergency response, you may be required to take a 24-Hour or 8-Hour Refresher course.
Types of Work Covered by HAZWOPER Standards
According to OSHA standards, HAZWOPER training applies to workers and employers involved in five specific types of operations:
- Uncontrolled hazardous waste cleanup operations required by a government body
- Corrective actions involving cleanup operations at Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) sites
- Hazardous waste operations at treatment, storage and disposal (TSD) facilities
- Operations at non-TSD facilities that generate hazardous waste
- Emergency response actions involving the potential release of hazardous substances
For a full list of operations that require HAZWOPER training, see OSHA’s HAZWOPER standards.
Additional Training Requirements
Workers must have 40 hours of initial training and at least three days of supervised field experience before they are allowed to enter the site.
The online course meets the standard requirement of 40 hours of initial training. Your employer has to supplement this course with:
- Supervised Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) practice with the respirators and full protective gear.
- Site-specific training to familiarize you with the protocols specific to your duties and employer.
- Three (3) full days of directly supervised fieldwork. The lessons above MUST be separate from supervised fieldwork.
