OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Courses — Know the Difference

Did you know there are FIVE 24-Hour HAZWOPER Courses required by the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.120?
Each of these courses is very different in both to whom they apply and the topics that are covered during the training.

Hazmat Incident Commanders are trained to respond to hazardous materials emergencies for the purpose of managing the incident beyond that of the First Responder at the Operations Level.

Hazmat Incident Commander Refresher (4 Hour) Option

Many people falsely assume that Hazardous Materials Incident Commander refresher training needs to be a minimum of eight hours in length annually.

This is because the traditional OSHA 8 Hour Refresher Course is required each year for those trained to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER and 24 Hour HAZWOPER levels per section (e) of the OSHA HAZWOPER Regulation.

However, the refresher training requirement for the Hazardous Materials Incident Commander is found in section (q), not section (e), of the HAZWOPER Standard.

Excerpt from 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(8)(i)
Those employees who are trained in accordance with paragraph (q)(6) of this section shall receive annual refresher training of sufficient content and duration to maintain their competencies…

By offering shorter 4-hour versions, employers have the ability to have their employees take a 4-hour version twice a year for a total of 8 hours of annual refresher training if that is the goal.

This benefits the employee since it shortens the time frame between refresher training sessions to 6 months rather than 12 months.

Many employers go as far as conducting a 4-hour refresher session every three months to keep their Hazmat Incident Commanders at a high level of readiness.

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.

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. Safety Unlimited, Inc. urges follow-up, on-site specific equipment training with the actual equipment that will be used as part of the student's role as an emergency responder. 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.

There are three sections in the OSHA HAZWOPER Regulation that require refresher training. These are section (e), (p), and (q).

Section (e) is for hazardous substance removal work (clean up operations) or for work on sites recognized as hazardous waste sites.
Section (p) is for operations at Treatment Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs).
And section (q) is for Emergency Response operations for releases of hazardous substances.

The hourly refresher training requirement for each is:

  • Section (e) – 8 hours annually.
  • Section (p) – 8 hours annually.
  • Section (q) – No hourly requirement, but rather of "sufficient content and duration" annually to maintain responder competencies.

In addition to the different time frames, the content of the training is different depending on which section of the regulation applies to the worker. For this reason, taking the correct training is extremely important.
