40-Hour HAZWOPER Seminar Course
40-Hour HAZWOPER Seminar provides the initial classroom training mandated by OSHA 29 CFR1910.120(e). Workers attending this instructor-led course will cover 18 different OSHA suggested topics including Health and Safety Procedures, PPE used during work operations at hazardous material sites, Medical Monitoring and many others.
Instructors emphasize a practical approach to worksite health and safety, as such, attendees learn to recognize site hazards and take appropriate steps to prevent illness or injuries while on the jobsite. The 40-Hour initial training is for site workers who have responsibilities to remediate (clean-up) hazardous materials at controlled and un-controlled hazardous sites with hazards or work activities that present some potential for exposure to health and safety hazards. The major emphasis of the class is to provide participants with the ability to evaluate site conditions, recognize situations which may or may not be within their abilities, and to evaluate conditions where assistance is required.
