Overview

In addition to taking the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online, Safety Unlimited also offers a blended version that includes 32 hours of online training coupled with 8 hours of classroom training. It is really two classes combined, one online and one in a classroom environment. 8 Hour Hands on Schedule

In the classroom portion, students receive hands-on training during the final 8 hours of their 40-hour certification. OSHA requires workers to be adequately trained to use specialized equipment in a training environment before actually having to use it in a hazardous work environment. This session introduces students to examples of this type of equipment and allows them to practice with it. Please note — the online portion needs to be completed before attending the hands-on session.

This version of the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER course may still need to be followed up with on-site specific equipment training because the equipment that is used during the instruction for our classroom training may not be the exact equipment employees will be using as part of his or her job function. For this reason many users opt to take the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online course.

We are always working to add new locations across the United States for students to take the hands-on portion of their training. We do this through an affiliate partnership with other training providers, but are very selective with respect to whom we partner to ensure the highest quality training.

Some students prefer to get the 8-hour hands-on training locally through another training provider, or even through their employer. For those students, we offer an Online 32 Hour HAZWOPER course to combine with the hands-on portion. In some cases, when another training provider does not issue a 40-hour certification, we may be able to do so. However, this is only done when students who have taken the 32 hours of online training are able to provide sufficient proof of taking the hands-on portion.

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 course is two classes combined, one online and one in a classroom environment. The 32-hour online portion consists of 72 sections broken down into 9 modules (see table below). It is recommended that users take each section in sequential order, although this is not required.

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

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. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. 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 that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.

Some students prefer to get the 8-hour hands-on training locally through another training provider, or even through their employer. For those students, we offer an Online 32 Hour HAZWOPER course to combine with the hands-on portion. In some cases, when another training provider does not issue a 40-hour certification, we may be able to do so. However, this is only done when students who have taken the 32 hours of online training are able to provide sufficient proof of taking the hands-on portion.

Field Experience

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

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:
