Physical and On Site Requirements
The HAZWOPER First Responder Operations course is a prerequisite to the First Responder Operations Annual Refresher.
While this training course is comprehensive, additional site-specific training must be taken for certain hazardous materials that may be encountered at different sites.
OSHA-approved states must have standards at least as strict as the Federal HAZWOPER training requirements and these states may also have additional training requirements of their own.
