OSHA expects general hazardous waste site workers who will become supervisors or managers to receive at least 16 hours of training during the year they become a supervisor. This includes 8 hours of management and supervisory training in addition to 8 hours of employee refresher training. HAZWOPER requires supervisors and managers to receive training and supervised field experience that is, at least, equivalent to the level of training their employees have received and to have at least 8 additional hours of specialized training on the topics listed in 1910.120(e)(4).
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.
In addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training provided by his or her employer. 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.
