fire safe safety servicesHazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response or HAZWOPER is an OSHA required hazardous material safety training to secure HAZWOPER certification for hazardous materials handling, use, and clean-up. Employers must maintain records of HAZWOPER safety training in their employee’s personnel file.

8 Hour HAZWOPER Awareness/Hazard Communication – Live
The 8-hour HAZWOPER Awareness course meets the Hazard Communication Standard in OSHA 1910.120. The course ensures chemical safety in the workplace. Course participants learn how to communicate information about the presence of chemicals, the chemicals employed, and their hazards to co-workers.

OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of such information by the chemical manufacturers and importers. They must evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import and prepare labels and Safety Data Sheets to convey the hazards to their customers. All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must have labels and safety data sheets for their exposed workers, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately. This course covers: Hazard Recognition, Hazard Classification, Labeling, and Safety Data Sheets.

24 Hour HAZWOPER – Live
The 24 hour HAZWOPER or HAZWOPER 24 is a certification path designed for employees working in the vicinity of hazardous substances and may occasionally be exposed to such substances. These employees do not work directly with handling or cleaning up hazardous substances. This is an abbreviated HAZWOPER 40 course for supervisors, support personnel, site visitors, and others not directly handling hazardous substances.

40 Hour HAZWOPER – Live
The 40-hour HAZWOPER or HAZWOPER 40 is a certification path designed for employees directly working with hazardous substances.

  • Emergency Response – 29 CFR 1910.120 (q)
  • General Site Cleanup – 29 CFR 1910.120 (e)
  • Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA) Treatment, Storage & Disposal Facilities (TSDF) – 29 CFR 1910.120 (p)
