24 Hour Hazwoper Training
Online Course for Occasional Site Workers
The 24 Hour online HAZWOPER Training course is a course created specifically for those individuals who will be working on-site on an occasional basis or only for a specific task and aren’t expected to be exposed to hazardous materials for longer than the permissible exposure period. This course is also for regular on-site workers that are working in areas which the hazardous material levels are under the permissible limits, health hazards are not present and respirators are not necessary.
The 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training course is in accordance with OSHA’s Hazardous Waste and Emergency Response training standard (29 CFR 1910.120(e) (3)) and can be taken online as opposed to a classroom setting. In this course you will find 14 sections, which cover topics regarding hazards in the workplace, in compliance with OSHA standards. Upon completion, you will be able to print your certificate as proof of completion.
What Exactly is HAZWOPER?
To put it quite simply, HAZWOPER is the HAZardous Waste OPerations Response, which was put together by OSHA in order to properly train employees and employers in the correct methods in dealing with hazardous material on the job-site.
It may seem like a foreign term to many people, but HAZWOPER training is used nationwide and anybody who may be working in situations that could involve chemicals, hazardous waste or other materials deemed hazardous have probably had some form of HAZWOPER training.
