Our OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 24-Hour Training course is designed to satisfy the OSHA 24-Hour HAZWOPER training requirements for workers involved in hazardous waste and emergency operations in compliance with OSHA Standards, 29 CFR 1910.120(e) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e). OSHA standards require employees to complete this OSHA HAZWOPER 24 Hour Training prior to entering or beginning work on an uncontrolled hazardous waste site.

The OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training prepares hazardous waste and emergency response workers to recognize and avoid common risks found when exposed to hazardous materials (HazMat) when working on hazardous worksites. Students will learn about:

  • personal protective equipment (PPE);
  • chemical safety;
  • Decontamination;
  • HazMat site emergencies;
  • confined spaces; and more.

The OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training is intended for workers who are unlikely to experience routine high-risk exposures as part of hazardous waste operations, such as workers who are only occasionally on a hazardous waste site to perform specific, limited tasks, and workers in proximity to hazardous materials and other hazardous substances where permissible exposure limits (PELs) are not exceeded.

Employees engaged in work tasks in the following positions require the OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training:

  • HazMat technicians and specialists;
  • HazMat supervisors;
  • On-scene incident commanders; and
  • Hazardous waste managers and supervisors.

Please note that managers and supervisors who typically need the OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training can use this OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER certification to meet OSHA requirements only if they exclusively manage or supervise workers who only require OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training. These managers and supervisors must also complete eight hours of specialized training (the OSHA HAZWOPER 8-Hour Supervisor course) that is outside the scope of this OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER training.

Some of the benefits of HAZWOPER OSHA Online Training

At the end of this OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training program, once you complete the required study time for the OSHA 24 hour HAZWOPER certification, you can take the final exam. Upon passing the final exam, you will receive an electronic OSHA 24 hour HAZWOPER Training course completion certificate. This will be emailed to you immediately. The Plastic Wallet ID Card will arrive in U.S. mail within 2-3 weeks after you upload or email your passport-style photograph.
