40 Hour Hazwoper Hazmat Training

The terms “hazmat employee” and “hazmat employer” are defined in detail in 49 CFR 171.8. Stated briefly, a hazmat employee is anyone who directly affects hazardous materials transportation safety, and a Haz-mat employer is anyone who uses employees in connection with transporting hazardous materials in commerce, causing hazardous materials to be transported, or manufacturing or offering packaging as authorized for use in transportation of hazardous materials.

Before any hazmat employee performs a function subject to the HMR, that person must be provided initial HAZWOPER training in the performance of that function. Also, if a new regulation is adopted, or an existing regulation is changed that relates to a function performed by a hazmat employee, that hazmat employee first must be instructed in those new or revised function-specific requirements. A hazmat employee may perform a required function under the direct supervision of a properly trained knowledgeable hazmat employee for a period of 90 (ninety) days or until the required training is provided, whichever comes 1st.

Each hazmat employee must be initially trained, and periodically retrained at least every three years (previously two years; see final rule under Docket HM-222B; 61 FR 27166, May 30, 1996) in three areas: General awareness/ familiarization training designed to provide familiarity with requirements of the HMR and to enable the employee to recognize and identify hazardous materials; function-specific training concerning requirements of the HMR which are specifically applicable to the functions the employee performs; and safety training concerning emergency response information, measures to protect the employee from the hazards posed by materials, and methods and procedures for avoiding accidents.

40 Hour HAZWOPER Training Online Course

Every hazmat employee must be OSHA Hazwoper trained, and periodically retrained at least every 3 years (previously two years; see final rule under Docket HM-222B; 61 FR 27166, May 30, 1996) in three areas:

General awareness/ familiarization training designed to provide familiarity with requirements of the HMR & to enable the employee to recognize and identify hazardous materials safety training concerning emergency response information, measures to protect the employee from the hazards posed by materials, and methods and procedures for avoiding accidents.

Function-specific training concerning requirements of the HMR which are specifically applicable to the functions the employee performs; and

Haz-mat employers are responsible for HAZWOPER training. Each hazmat employee must be trained, tested and the employer must keep a record of training to include certification of HAZWOPER training and testing, date of training, a description of the training material, and the name and address of the person providing the training.

Effective training of hazmat employees with an accepted OSHA HAZWOPER course reduces the potential for incidents and accidents and is essential for the protection of all people involved (employees, passengers, emergency response personnel & the general public), property, and the environment.

HAZWOPER applies to five particular groups of employers as well as their employees. This includes any employees who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances– including hazardous waste–and who are engaged in one of the following operations as specified by 1910.120(a)(1)(i-v) and 1926.65(a)(1)(i-v):

Clean-up operations–required by a governmental body, whether federal, state, local, or other involving hazardous substances– that are conducted at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.

Corrective actions involving clean-up operations at sites covered by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) as amended (42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.).

Operations involving hazardous wastes that are conducted at treatment, storage, and disposal facilities regulated by Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 264 and 265 pursuant to RCRA, or by agencies under agreement with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to implement RCRA regulations.

Voluntary clean-up operations at sites recognized by federal, state, local, or other governmental body as uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.

Emergency response operations for releases of, or substantial threats of release of, hazardous substances regardless of the location of the hazard.

The term “hazardous waste” comprises all toxic chemicals, radioactive materials, and biologic or infectious waste. These materials threaten workers through occupational exposure and the general public in their homes, communities, and general environment. Most hazardous waste results from industrial processes that yield unwanted people that use byproducts, defective products, and spilled materials. The generation and disposal of hazardous wastes is controlled through a variety of international and national regulations.

Hazardous waste was formerly known as ‘special’ waste. OSHA health and safety online classes for hazardous waste disposal-40 hour Hazwoper.
