Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response 24-Hour Training (HAZWOPER)



Personnel who are expected to stop, contain, and clean up on-site releases are required to have 24 hours of initial training. Personnel who are involved in cleanups at waste sites-including Superfund sites, RCRA corrective action sites, or even voluntary cleanups involving hazardous substances-must have 40 hours of initial classroom instruction.

Satisfy your training requirements with this comprehensive class that provides in-depth instruction on how to perform emergency response activities. Topics include hazard recognition, spill control and containment, worker protection, and waste site activities such as site characterization, waste handling, and decontamination. You will have the opportunity to apply your training during a hands-on simulated incident response.

The manual, Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Handbook, is designed to serve as your primary reference during the 24-hour and 40-hour HAZWOPER training courses. Attendees also receive a copy of the Emergency Response Guidebook.
