This course is designed to help workers with HAZWOPER Supervisor (Initial) training meet the OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher requirement. If this course takes fewer than 8 hours to complete, it should be combined with other training conducted throughout the year to meet the 8-hour requirement. Additional training can come from hands-on training, training that is job or company specific, or even tailgate safety meetings.
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. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

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 general hazardous waste site workers who are becoming supervisors or managers to receive at least 16 hours of training during the year they become supervisors: 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).
