Training

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.

Additional Training

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Course

If you do not find your question here, we do have more FAQs

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).

Our courses are set up to take a specific amount of time. Some students may get through the training more quickly, while others may take longer to complete their training. This course will take around 8 hours to complete.
