8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher
Must Have Documentation of 24 or 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training
8 hour annual refresher training applies to employees, managers, and supervisors who completed 24 or 40 hour HAZWOPER training. This includes general site workers, utility workers, cleanup operations, corrective actions, emergency response, facilities, and more. Our in-depth training satisfies the HAZWOPER refresher training requirements for workers, managers, and supervisors as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.120 and 1926.65. The OSHA HAZWOPER standard regulates all hazardous waste operations from inception to disposal.
People working at or near hazardous waste operations and those who may be involved in emergency response must complete HAZWOPER 8-hour annual refresher training. Guidance in hazard recognition, exposure limits, and general site safety applies to workers exposed to hazardous materials with operations involving hazardous waste at treatment, storage and disposal facilities, general site workers, occasional site workers, and other personnel not faced with daily hazards such as equipment operators, laborers, and supervisors who engage in activities that expose or potentially expose workers to hazardous substances.
The goal of this 1-day program are for you to be better able to:
- Recognize hazards present in vicinity and identify health effects of those hazards.
- Use work practices and protective equipment to reduce hazards.
- Use written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to control hazards.
- Hands-on training in site-specific plans, potential exposures, and work practices.
- Emergency response for hazardous substance or substantial threats of releases to coordinate communication, evacuation, medical treatment, prevention, and recognition.
Upon successful completion of the refresher course, written exam, and practical simulation exercises, participants will receive a certificate of completion. Participants must bring their own HAZWOPER respiratory protection, annual fit testing, and current medical evaluation certification and wear appropriate work clothes and personal protective equipment for the simulation exercises.
