Frequently Asked Questions:
2. Who needs the 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training?
A person who works in an environment where there is the potential for exposure to hazardous substances at or above permissible exposure limits. This can include clean-up operations or operations involving hazardous substances at the workplace, and the storage, treatment, or disposal of hazardous substances, as well as emergency response operations.
3. What are the training requirements for general site workers at contaminated sites?
General site workers will be required to complete either the 40-Hour or 24-Hour HAZWOPER course. Once that is completed, the next step is to complete any site-specific training that is directed by the employer. Finally, each year, workers must complete the 8-Hour HAZWOPER refresher annually. The course was developed to meet annual HAZWOPER refresher requirements (re-certification) for workers conducting clean-up operations at contaminated sites.
4. What training is required for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities?
Any RCRA TSDF workers must complete the 24-Hour HAZWOPER course and then perform any required site- specific training that is administered by the employer. Once that is completed, an 8-Hour HAZWOPER refresher on an annual basis will be required to maintain the HAZWOPER certificate.
5. How has the 40-Hour HAZWOPER course been updated?
The course has been fully revised and reorganized and features exceptional content containing current research, standards, and technology. The self-paced training is interactive and fully narrated with thorough explanations and check point questions throughout to ensure comprehension.
