Why Should You Take This Course?

Our 24 hour HAZWOPER training features the OSHA accepted HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator®. When researching prospective training companies online, you will find that we are the only company with anything accepted by OSHA with respect to HAZWOPER training. Others may state their training is OSHA accepted but we are the only company with an OSHA interpretation letter accepting anything to do with HAZWOPER training. There is a lot of misinformation about HAZWOPER training on the internet today.
Our advice is to select a seasoned training provider who has proven themselves over the years. A well respected training provider should have some communication with OSHA about their courses. Read about our HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator®.

Course Details

Course Description

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires specialized training for workers who may be exposed to hazardous waste materials while on the job. There are different types of Hazardous Waste and Operations Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) training available. HAZWOPER 24 is the 24-hour learning program created specifically for those in workplaces designated as a HAZWOPER site under OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.120. This is a basic umbrella for those not facing an everyday hazard, although the possibility exists for exposure to chemical hazards in this working environment.featured clients

The 24 Hour HAZWOPER Course is taken online. As with any training (classroom or online) the employer is required by regulations to train the employee(s) on performance based standards for any applicable equipment. This is a 24 Hour HAZWOPER site-specific requirement and typically cannot be achieved in a regular public seminar or open enrollment class where training on a respirator(s) or PPE in general does not meet the site-specific regulatory requirement.

Professionals engaged in hazardous substance clean up who will not be exposed or that may be potentially exposed to hazardous substances and health hazards shall receive a minimum of 24 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of 1 day actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor.

Plan States (approved by U.S. OSHA) must have standards at least as stringent as the Federal HAZWOPER training requirements. These Plan States may have additional training requirements.

Accreditation – Continuing Education Units (CEU’s)

Aside from OSHA compliance, those completing this class are eligible for continuing education credits from the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. As in many work industries, these professionals are required to stay on top of important information and procedures in their field. The Board of Certified Safety Professionals offers certification points to its members completing the course.

This course has been awarded 4.0 Industrial Hygiene CM Points by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) – approval number 13334. This course is eligible for 2.0 Continuance of Certification (COC) points from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP).

Added Assurance of OSHA Compliance

We also offer the added assurance that our course complies with the OSHA regulations. We have an interpretation letter from the U.S. OSHA Directorate of Enforcement Programs in Washington D.C., accepting our HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator. Please follow this link to download the OSHA interpretation letter. No other online company has such a letter from OSHA. So, for almost the same price as other companies that provide no assurance, you also receive added assurance from us that you are in compliance with OSHA.

hazwoper simulatorSuccessful companies and employers do not guess at regulatory compliance. They make certain they are in compliance at all times or at least they are making strong efforts to be in compliance. It is no different when it comes to health and safety training. The training received by employees is only as good as the instruction. Unfortunately, some people believe that a certificate is a certificate and they are in compliance. This is not always the case and companies pay huge fines for training deficiencies.

An effective training program:

• Develops a strong safety culture
• Heightens employee safety by helping employees protect themselves
• Improves a company’s effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity
• Increases employee skills
• May prevent regulatory sanctions
• Aids in ensuring safe and secure shipments of hazardous materials
• Reduces likelihood of catastrophic events
• Provides employees with understanding of why compliance and safety are necessary

What Are The Prerequisites?


Levels of HAZWOPER Training

HAZWOPER training levels for various occupations and job functions. View the chart and matrix and decide which training course is right for you. The OSHA regulations are sometimes difficult to interpret. By reviewing the chart and matrix, you can determine the exact training needed for your employees. The information used to produce the chart and matrix was derived from OSHA regulations, guidance documents, and interpretation letters.

Individual or Group Training

Our training can be taken and completed on an individual basis or in a group setting. For individuals, the training is self-paced and you are able to complete the training on your schedule. You are able to logout and login at your discretion. When you login, the training will begin where it last left off both in content and study time. The same is true for training in a group setting. Usually, a company will project the course onto a screen where a group of people can take the training together. At conclusion of the modules, each person from the group will login to our site using their respective username and password and take the final exam.

What's The Difference Between 40 Hour HAZWOPER and 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training?

HAZWOPER training is required for work at all contaminated sites. The primary difference between the 24 and 40 hour HAZWOPER training comes down to the OSHA Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs). Individuals who will not likely be exposed to PELs at or above the threshold limits can take the 24 hour version of the training. If you believe people at a site will meet or exceed the PELs, then you would need the 40 hour training.
