Training Requirements

Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job. Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program.

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.

Additional Training

In addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training provided 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.

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

Frequently Asked Questions About This Course

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

Q - What if it has been longer than 12 months since I received my refresher training?
A - 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."

Q - Can I use my one-time 8 Hour Initial HAZWOPER Supervisor training course as my refresher training for that year?
A - 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).

Q - How long will this course take to complete?
A - Our courses are set up to take a specific amount of time. Some students may get through the training more quickly, while others may actually take longer to complete their training. Remember, this training should be used as an intricate tool in the context of an overall training program; it can be combined with other training throughout the year in order to meet any hour requirements needed.

Q - Do I have to finish the course in one sitting?
A - No, our courses are designed so you can start and stop as needed, allowing you to break the training up over a longer period of time. Our system will keep track of your progress, enabling you to resume where you left off upon your next login. It is important that once you start a section, you complete that section or you will need to start that section over from the beginning upon your return.

Q - Can I take the course from more than one computer?
A - Yes, you can take this course by signing in with your username and password from any location and computer with high-speed internet access. However, each computer does need to meet our basic system requirements for viewing our online courses.
