Physical and on-site requirements are defined in your initial 24-hour or 40-hour training courses and by your employer.

A HAZWOPER Supervisor is responsible for the following:

  • 1910.120(b)(4)(ii)(F) Site control measures in accordance with the site control program required in paragraph (d) of this section.
  • 1910.120(b)(4)(ii)(G) Decontamination procedures in accordance with paragraph (k) of this section.

  • 1910.120(d) Site control — 1910.120(d)(1) General. Appropriate site control procedures shall be implemented to control employee exposure to hazardous substances before clean-up work begins.
  • 1910.120(d)(2) Site control program. A site control program for protecting employees which is part of the employer’s site safety and health program required in paragraph (b) of this section shall be developed during the planning stages of a hazardous waste clean-up operation and modified as necessary as new information becomes available.

The 8-hour HAZWOPER supervisor refresher does not serve as a refresher for the regular 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher. OSHA expects a general hazardous waste site worker to have 16 hours of training annually, including at least eight additional hours of specialized training on the topics listed in 1910.120(e)(4). If you work in an OSHA-approved Plan State, you may have additional training requirements.
