24 Hour Course

Our OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 24-Hour Online Training course is designed for hazardous waste and emergency response workers who must satisfy their 24-hour HAZWOPER training requirement in compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120(e) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e) regulations. OSHA standards require employees to complete this HAZWOPER 24-hour training prior to entering or beginning work on an uncontrolled hazardous waste site.

The 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 24-hour HAZWOPER online 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 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 40-hour HAZWOPER training can use this 24-hour HAZWOPER certification to meet OSHA requirements only if they exclusively manage or supervise workers who only require 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 24-hour HAZWOPER training.

The core objective of the 24-Hour HAZWOPER training is to meet OSHA’s HAZWOPER training requirements found in 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(ii) for the general industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(ii) for the construction industry. Under these regulations, once workers have completed the initial 24 hours of training, they must receive one day of supervised field experience.

According to 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(ii) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(ii):
“Workers on site only occasionally for a specific limited task (such as, but not limited to, ground water monitoring, land surveying, or geophysical surveying) and who are unlikely to be exposed over permissible exposure limits and published exposure limits shall receive a minimum of 24 hours of instruction off the site, and the minimum of one day actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor.”

Course Objectives

After completing the 24-hour HAZWOPER training, the learner will be able to:

  • Fully understand OSHA HAZWOPER general industry and construction regulations and requirements related to general site workers;
  • Understand the importance of an effective HAZWOPER Site Safety and Health Program;
  • Explain the activities involved in site characterization;
  • Discuss basic toxicology principles and how they are related to chemical hazards and exposure;
  • Identify potentially hazardous situations involving toxic and hazardous substances, such as corrosives, solvents, oxidizers, and reactive chemicals;
  • Understand the uses of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and how to identify and select the correct PPE related to a particular Hazmat worksite;
  • Explain the principles of decontamination as well as levels of decontamination and their methods;
  • Understand the components of an effective Medical Surveillance Program;
  • Recognize confined spaces and understand the hazards of performing work operations in such spaces; Recognize the air monitoring and detection tools available to hazardous waste site workers;
  • Understand the various considerations of an environmental emergency response and the training and actions needed for personnel safety and the safety of others.

The 24-hour HAZWOPER certification course is designed by OSHA-Certified Outreach Trainers and is regularly reviewed and updated as soon as new requirements or regulations are released by OSHA. The course meets and exceeds the compliance requirements with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120(e) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e) regulations.

Training Requirements

OSHA requires that workers to have 24-hours of initial training off the site and at least one day of supervised field experience before they are allowed to enter the hazardous waste worksite. The employer is responsible for providing the one-day field experience under a trained and qualified supervisor. OSHA also requires employees to maintain this initial HAZWOPER certification by taking an annual 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course thereafter.

A Final Note

It is important to remember that you are taking the online version of the 24-hour HAZWOPER training course required by OSHA for general site workers engaged in activities involving hazardous waste and other hazardous substances. The hands-on training and field experience required by the HAZWOPER Standard are not part of this course.

It is ultimately the responsibility of the employer to provide adequate training to its employees depending on their job type and experience, and to meet OSHA requirements in the process.
