Compliance Solutions online 24-Hour HAZWOPER Course meets OSHA requirements for training of personnel engaged in hazardous waste operations as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.120 as well as employees designated as “occasional site workers”. This includes removal or handling of underground tanks and/or piping, contaminated soil and/or groundwater, subsurface investigations, construction work in which hazardous materials may potentially be present, encountered, prepared, packaged, labeled, marked, stored, shipped for disposal, or any facility wherein hazardous wastes are treated, stored, or disposed. Examples of possible career fields include: science, technology, engineering, medicine, toxicology, law, psychology, organizational management, loss prevention, QA/QC, construction, and waste management.
Should I Take the 24 or 40 hour HAZWOPER?: OSHA states, “workers, such as utility workers, who must perform duties at a hazardous waste site that has not yet been characterized but where contamination is expected, do fall under the scope of 29 CFR 1910.120. These workers must work under the direction of an on-site supervisor and a site-specific safety and health plan, and must be fully trained and protected pursuant to the HAZWOPER standard. When additional information becomes available through site characterization that verifies that there is minimal or no risk of employee exposure to hazardous substances, a lesser degree of PPE and worker training may be acceptable.
When site characterization shows that the area to be serviced by workers is free of potential exposure, or the proposed work assignments would not expose any of the work crew to hazardous substances, the activity can be carried out as a normal maintenance or construction operation.
***NOTE***Employees who have duties related to handling or cleaning up hazardous materials in any of these job functions should take the 40-hour HAZWOPER course. The 24-hour course is designed for “Occasional Site Workers” meaning those individuals who ARE NOT required them to handle waste or hazardous materials as part of their job functions.
The utility contractor is bound to provide at least the minimum number of training hours specified. On a hazardous waste site that has many site specific peculiarities the employer may need to train employees beyond the 40 or 24 hour minimum set by the standard. Employees must be provided training that prepares them for their job functions and responsibilities, as stated in the general requirements in 29 CFR 1910.120(e).”
It should be noted that employees who have duties related to handling or cleaning up hazardous materials or waste in any of these functions should take the 40-hour HAZWOPER course. The 24-hour course is designed for “Occasional Site Workers” meaning those individuals whose job does not require them to handle waste or hazardous materials as part of their job.
The two main objectives of HAZWOPER Operations are to:
- Control or eliminate the potential hazards and/or losses, and
- Protect the health and safety of workers, the public, and the environment.
The purpose of this course is to ensure awareness and promote safety among employees who may be exposed to chemical hazards at the worksite. The objective is to ensure that employees operate in the safest possible manner in situations where contact with potentially hazardous materials is likely.
At the conclusion of 24-Hour HAZWOPER OSHA Training, students will:
- Understand how hazardous materials are handled, identified, and human responses to exposure
