All HAZWOPER workers are required to refresh their initial HAZWOPER training on an annual basis. This includes HAZWOPER 24-, 40-, and Supervisor (Initial) training.
This course is designed to help workers meet the OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training requirement for 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(8), 29 CFR 1910.120(p)(7)(i), or 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(8) for General Industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(8), 29 CFR 1926.65(p)(7)(i), or 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(8) for Construction.
Workers must receive additional training, when required by Federal, State, or local regulations, on the specific hazards of their job. Additional training in the use of any personal protective equipment or clothing used as part of emergency response is required and should be provided by your employer.
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, a student should receive site-specific training supplied by their 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.
If this training takes less than 8 hours to complete, it should be combined with other training conducted throughout the year to meet the 8-hour requirement. This additional training can come from hands-on training, training that is job- or company-specific, or even tailgate safety meetings.

This does not mean you must take the initial training all over again. Per OSHA, "If the date for refresher training has lapsed, the need to repeat the initial training must be determined based on the employee's familiarity with safety and health procedures used on site. The employee should take the next available refresher training course. There should be a record in the employee's file indicating why the training has been delayed and when the training will be completed."
No, OSHA would expect a general hazardous waste site worker who is becoming a supervisor or manager to receive at least 16 hours of training during the year they become a supervisor: 8 hours of management and supervisory training in addition to 8 hours of employee refresher training. HAZWOPER requires that supervisors and managers be trained and given supervised field experience to at least the level of the employees who they will oversee, and have at least eight additional hours of specialized training on the topics listed in 1910.120(e)(4).

We're excited to announce that this course is now available in HTML 5, making it 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, this course requires only the most recent version of your mobile device's web browser.
Mobile versions of this sort of training are new, but below are some Pros and Cons that we have noticed during our extensive testing.
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.
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.
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.
The multiple course versions are designed with the intention of offering you more options for your training. The more applicable your training can be toward your job, the better.
Yes, all versions meet OSHA requirements. OSHA allows flexibility in training and prefers training to be individual specific.
