8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher Online
8 Instructional Hours
This course satisfies the annual training requirement of OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standard, found in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 1910.120. The standard was specifically developed to protect workers who may be exposed to hazardous waste at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites and at EPA licensed waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities, as well as workers responding to emergencies involving hazardous materials, such as spills.
Eight (8) instructional hours represents the estimated time to complete the online course, including exercises. However, actual times may vary from user to user.
The goal of this OSHA-mandated training is to provide personnel involved with the clean-up of hazardous waste sites the knowledge to safely work in a hazardous environment. This course will refresh your knowledge and understanding of HAZWOPER requirements as required by 29 CFR 1910.120, and help you satisfy your annual refresher HAZWOPER training requirement.
This online course is intended for supervisors, environmental professionals, and other hazardous waste site personnel, including:
Workers in cleanup operations at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites;
Workers at EPA-licensed waste TSD facilities;
Workers responding to emergencies involving hazardous materials; and
Any individuals requiring annual OSHA 8 Hour Refresher training.
