Course Description: The 40-Hour HAZWOPER course is designed to ensure awareness and promote safety among employees who may be exposed to chemical hazards in their workplace. The objective is to ensure that employees operate in the safest possible manner in situations where contact with potentially hazardous materials is likely.
General site workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel) engaged in hazardous substance removal or other activities which expose or potentially expose workers to hazardous substances and health hazards shall receive a minimum of 40 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of three days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor.
This class is designed to provide students with written and hands- on instruction in hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) as it relates to chemical and physical exposures in industrial and field settings. This course satisfies the requirement for generalized employee training under OSHA (1910.120) and (1926.65).
