OSHA has established several levels of training under the umbrella of HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response). HAZWOPER training is required for personnel that may potentially be exposed to hazardous materials and for those involved in spill cleanup operations. OSHA defines HAZWOPER through their General Industry Regulation Title 29, section 1910.120, also known as 29 CFR 1910.20. This regulation defines several operations where HAZWOPER training is required. The Operations portion of the HAZWOPER training will cover the following:
  • Levels of training which must be completed
  • Emergency plans and hazardous waste informational sources
  • Responses to various hazardous waste sources
  • Medical surveillance programs
  • Site monitoring, engineering controls and work practices
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Course Objectives
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
  • Identify hazardous materials involved in a spill or release
  • Describe the implementation and execution of a facility emergency response plan
  • Identify the proper PPE and spill cleanup material to be used during an incident response
  • Discuss basic spill cleanup and decontamination procedures
  • Describe the process for determining what material should be considered hazardous waste following a spill or release.
