Overview

In addition to taking the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online, Safety Unlimited also offers a blended version that includes 32 hours of online training coupled with 8 hours of classroom training. It is really two classes combined, one online and one in a classroom environment.

In the classroom portion, students receive hands-on training during the final 8 hours of their 40-hour certification. OSHA requires workers to be adequately trained to use specialized equipment in a training environment before actually having to use it in a hazardous work environment. This session introduces students to examples of this type of equipment and allows them to practice with it.

This version of the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER course may still need to be followed up with on-site specific equipment training because the equipment that is used during the instruction for our classroom training may not be the exact equipment employees will be using as part of his or her job function. For this reason many users opt to take the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online course.

We are always working to add new locations across the United States for students to take the hands-on portion of their training. We do this through an affiliate partnership with other training providers, but are very selective with respect to whom we partner to ensure the highest quality training.

Some students prefer to get the 8-hour hands-on training locally through another training provider, or even through their employer. For those students, we offer an Online 32 Hour HAZWOPER course to combine with the hands-on portion. In some cases, when another training provider does not issue a 40-hour certification, we may be able to do so. However, this is only done when students who have taken the 32 hours of online training are able to provide sufficient proof of taking the hands-on portion.

About This Course

This course is two classes combined, one online and one in a classroom environment. The 32-hour online portion consists of 72 sections broken down into 9 modules (see table below). It is recommended that users take each section in sequential order, although this is not required.

Course Exams

This course has 9 module exams based upon the 9 modules. Students are required to complete each exam once they complete all the sections within the corresponding module. The intention is that students take the corresponding exam while the information is still fresh. THERE IS NO FINAL EXAM

Each exam consists of 10 questions randomly selected from a large pool of questions. A 70% score or better is required to pass each exam. Students who do not pass the exam the first time may retake the exam as many times as necessary in order to pass.

Accreditation

This OSHA accepted training is brought to you by a team of OSHA Certified Outreach Trainers and meets the requirements for 29 CFR 1910.120(e) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e).

Continuing Education Credits

Per the California Department of Public Health, this course is approved for 40 Contact Hours (4 CEUs) of Continuing Education (CE). While these CE units are intended for Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHS) in California, they are often transferred to other accrediting bodies. Please check with your specific agency for more details and to learn if your agency accepts this course for CE credit (Public Health Accreditation #044).

Additional Training

When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job.

Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure their employees are trained adequately to do their job.

Some students prefer to get the 8-hour hands-on training locally through another training provider, or even through their employer. For those students, we offer an Online 32 Hour HAZWOPER course to combine with the hands-on portion. In some cases, when another training provider does not issue a 40-hour certification, we may be able to do so. However, this is only done when students who have taken the 32 hours of online training are able to provide sufficient proof of taking the hands-on portion.

Online Training on Mobile Devices Tablet Smart Phone HTML 5 The Future

With a great number of adults using mobile devices--such as tablets and smart phones--to check emails, do business, and even enjoy movies. Safety Unlimited, Inc. knows it's time to make some changes.

We're excited to announce a selection of courses now available in HTML 5, making them more compatible with the browser on your mobile device (e.g., smartphone or tablet). Many of our existing courses are presented using Adobe Flash Player and require additional software that may not be available on your mobile device. By comparison, our mobile-ready courses require only the most recent version of your mobile device's web browser, allowing students to take the course anywhere they have an internet connection.

You can switch between your computer and your mobile device, and our Learning Management System will keep track of your progress. There is no need to complete an entire section in order to move from one device to another.

We are working on making ALL of our online courses MOBILE DEVICE READY. This gives you, the customer, the choice and flexibility to take our online training on your computer or from the comfort of your own palm, wherever you may be. You now have complete control of when and where you would like to take your online training!

Mobile Pros and Cons

Mobile versions of this sort of training are new, but below are some Pros and Cons that we have noticed during our extensive testing.

Pros

  • No computer needed
  • Tablet mobility
  • Tablet screen graphics

Cons

  • Smartphone screens can be too small to see
  • Mobile browsers react differently than computer browsers
  • Phone calls can interrupt training

During our testing we noticed that tablets work much better than smartphones, simply due to their screen size. The newer the device, the better the result. We are also aware that the course will not work on the first generation iPad, nor older Android Tablets. The best way to see how it works on your device is to click on the DEMO button on this page.

Growing Pains

Because this is a Beta version of our course, you may encounter some issues as we work out the kinks. If you have difficulties with this course, please contact Customer Support.

Your Mobile Browser

While HTML5 makes taking this course on mobile devices possible, not all mobile browsers are optimized for HTML5, meaning you may not have complete functionality. If you have difficulty taking this course using the browser on your mobile device, you may need to use a different browser.

Test the functionality of your browser using HTML5 and compare it to the performance of other browsers. If you find other browsers are more compatible than your own, you may want to make the switch.
