The HAZWOPER 8-Hour Refresher course is intended for workers & managers involved in clean-up operations at hazardous waste sites who previously completed a 24-Hour or 40-Hour HAZWOPER initial training course.
Workers & managers involved in clean-up operations at hazardous waste sites, who previously completed 24-Hour or 40-hour of initial training, depending on their role, are encouraged to take this course. As a rule, HAZWOPER training is necessary for employees in one of three specific fields:
- Uncontrolled hazardous waste site operations
- Treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDFs) management
- Emergency response
HAZWOPER workers face significant risks of injury or even death from exposure to hazardous materials and/or hazardous wastes. To try to mitigate the dangers of these jobs, OSHA has developed the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) regulation. The purpose of the HAZWOPER refresher course is to reiterate safety best practices related to hazardous waste site operations.
