The Web's Most Popular Online OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training
Overview

Students who take this HAZWOPER training entirely online are those workers who will receive follow-up instruction with site-specific equipment training conducted by their employer, or those who require 40-hour HAZWOPER training but will not use any equipment on the work site.

It should be noted that the 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online training does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment available to the HAZWOPER worker. On-site, job-specific equipment training provided by the employer is essential to fulfill the HAZWOPER requirement.

We also offer the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Combo course that includes hands-on training as an option.

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

Students complete the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER training course entirely online. Instead of in-person, hands-on training, students are shown over 100 short video clips that simulate one of our 8-hour hands-on sessions. The video clips demonstrate HAZWOPER equipment in great detail and students have the ability to review the videos as many times as necessary.

For workers who supervise other HAZWOPER workers, our OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online course can be taken with the OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Supervisor (Initial) training as a package deal as described. Additional information is available in the Discounts tab.

About This Course

Following the completion of all training content and achievement of passing scores on all exams, students will need to complete a brief evaluation and confirm his/her identity. After doing so, the student will have access to the course completion certificate.

This fully narrated course is built for success, and includes interactions, exercises, and quiz questions intended to help prepare students for the module exams. Students must answer each quiz question and complete each interaction in order to proceed.

Course Exams

This course has 9 module exams based upon the first 9 modules. Students are required to complete each exam once they complete all the sections within the corresponding module. The intention is that students take the corresponding exam while the information is still fresh. THERE IS NO FINAL EXAM.

Each exam consists of 10 questions randomly selected from a large pool of questions. A 70% score or better is required to pass each exam. Students who do not pass the exam the first time may retake the exam as many times as necessary in order to pass.

Course Objectives

The objectives of the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER are to meet the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) for general industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i) for construction. This course is also intended to meet any HAZWOPER training requirements for the EPA and State OSHA regulations.

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i)

General site workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel) engaged in hazardous substance removal or other activities which expose or potentially expose workers to hazardous substances and health hazards shall receive a minimum of 40 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of three days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor.
Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Describe OSHA and the HAZWOPER Regulation and other laws related to the HAZWOPER worker;
  • Describe the training requirements for HAZWOPER workers;
  • Explain the importance of an effective Health and Safety Program;
  • List the components of an effective Medical Surveillance Program;
  • Perform site characterization and control by identifying site hazards and implementing steps to minimize these hazards;
  • Recognize hazardous substances and research their hazards utilizing various reference sources;
  • Understand basic toxicology principles and how they relate to chemical exposure;
  • Select and utilize proper personal protective equipment (PPE) related to the HAZWOPER worker;
  • Understand medical considerations of wearing Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC);
  • Understand decontamination methods and the principles of decontamination;
  • Understand the physical and chemical properties of hazardous substances;
  • Understand the importance of emergency preparedness;
  • Demonstrate an awareness of confined spaces;
  • Understand the OSHA Hazardous Communication Standard;
  • Perform hazardous substance spill and containment techniques;
  • Describe various sampling methods and procedures; and
  • Understand the detection and monitoring tools available to the HAZWOPER worker.
Training

This course is designed to help workers meet the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER training requirement for 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) and 49 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i).

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 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.

Field Experience

Once workers have completed their 40 hours of training, OSHA requires that worker must get supervised field experience.

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i)

General site workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel) engaged in hazardous substance removal or other activities which expose or potentially expose workers to hazardous substances and health hazards shall receive a minimum of 40 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of three days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor.

Many people mistakenly think this is part of their initial training and it is NOT. The three-day requirement of direct supervision has nothing to do with the training requirement. This requirement is meant to ensure that newly trained employees are not sent to a work site and left unsupervised but rather get supervised field experience for at least three days. It is not part of their training period; it is part of their job function period.

While we have found that most employers do not document this field experience, we have created forms that employers can use to document this field experience:

Frequently Asked Questions About Online Training
If you do not find your question here, we have more FAQs
