The OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher - RCRA TSD Operations Training course must be taken within twelve months of the initial OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER - RCRA TSD Operations Training or before the expiration of the previous OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher - RCRA TSD Operations Training certification.
OSHA allows for employees to take the OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher - RCRA TSD Operations Training after the previous training certificate has lapsed. The employee should take the next available OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher - RCRA TSD Operations Training course. The reason for the delay in taking the training and when the training will be completed should be recorded in the employee's file.
There may, however, be instances when a lapsed certificate may require an employee to re-take the initial OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER - RCRA TSD Operations Training. Very often, this may be due to the long gap between having taken the training. The requirement for this should be evaluated individually, considering the employee's familiarity with the safety and health processes and procedures implemented at the employer's workplace.
