This training teaches workers how to recognize and avoid common risks related to hazardous materials. You’ll learn about personal protective equipment (PPE), hazard communication, decontamination, site emergencies and general workplace safety topics like fall protection.
Who Needs OSHA 24-Hour HAZWOPER Training?
This training is appropriate for workers who are unlikely to experience high-risk exposure hazards at uncontrolled hazardous waste operations. This includes workers on site only occasionally for specific limited tasks and those who work in areas where hazards do no exceed permissible exposure limits.
Roles that require this training include:
- Hazardous materials technicians
- Hazardous materials specialists
- Hazardous materials supervisors
- On-scene incident commanders
- Management and supervisors
Management and supervisors who typically need 40-hour HAZWOPER training can meet OSHA requirements with this 24-hour course if their only area of responsibility is workers who require 24-hour HAZWOPER training. These managers and supervisors will also need to complete eight hours of specialized training at the time of job assignment.
