OSHA developed the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard to protect workers at hazardous sites. It applies to emergency response activities where there is an uncontrolled release of a hazardous substance or where an uncontrolled release may be likely. A wide range of industries are affected by HAZWOPER requirements, including:
- Emergency Services
- Environmental Sciences
NET's online interactive course contains thorough explanations, engaging animations, and check point questions throughout to ensure comprehension. Upon completion of the self-study modules, learners take a final examination to earn their certification. After successfully passing the examination, users can immediately download their digital certificate documenting compliance. NET also maintains records of all course completions and sends email notifications when refresher courses are due.
During HAZWOPER training, OSHA requires hands-on personal protective equipment (PPE) skills training using the actual equipment found on the job site. With the NET HAZWOPER Hands-On Simulator®, a site supervisor can demonstrate donning and doffing PPE while learners participate in three virtual scenarios of donning and doffing Level A, Level B, and Level C PPE.
The Simulator is exclusively included in every NET HAZWOPER course.
