What is 24-Hour HAZWOPER Training?
OSHA requires 24 hours of safety training under OSHA 29 CFR1910.120(e) for individuals who work on controlled or uncontrolled hazardous sites. The 24-Hour HAZWOPER course is designed for workers either are NOT required to deal directly with cleanup (this would generally be described as not working in conditions that require a protection level of “C or above) such as drillers, surveyors, contractors, administrative personnel, drivers etc. These must be fully trained pursuant to the HAZWOPER standard (29 CFR 1910.120(e)). Workers attending this course cover health and safety procedures during work operations at hazardous material sites.
The two main objectives of HAZWOPER training are:
Control or eliminate the potential hazards and/or losses, and
Protect the health and safety of workers, the public, and the environment.
PER OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard (29 CFR 1910.120), the purpose of this seminar is to ensure awareness and promote safety among employees who may be exposed to hazardous waste and chemical hazards on work-sites. The objective is to ensure that employees operate in the safest possible manner in situations where contact with potentially hazardous materials is likely.
At the conclusion of the 24-Hour HAZWOPER course, students will:
Understand how hazardous materials are handled, identified, and what the human responses to exposure are
Learn the importance of the Health and Safety Plan (HSP)
Incorporate the knowledge of what to do in case of site emergencies
Use appropriate safety methods and work practice controls
Recognize signs and labels that are used to alert personnel of danger involving hazardous material
