Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response 8 Hour Refresher
Hosted by U.S. EPA/ERTP

This course provides the basic information needed to meet the annual refresher requirements in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) for workers at hazardous waste sites who have already completed their initial 40-hour or 24-hour HAZWOPER training. Specifically, this course provides the refresher training for workers who perform hazardous waste site operations that are subject to the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120 (a) through (p).

After completing this refresher course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify methods and procedures for recognizing, evaluating, and controlling hazardous substances.
  • Identify concepts, principles, and guidelines to properly protect site or response personnel.
  • Discuss regulations and action levels to ensure health and safety of the workers.
  • Discuss fundamentals needed to develop organizational structure and standard operating procedures.
  • Comprehend respiratory program requirements and the selection and use of respiratory protection equipment and chemically protective clothing. Combined these are known as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

 

29 CFR 1910.120 Select Regulation Descriptions:

1910.120(e)(3)(i)  40-Hour course for General Site Worker

1910.120(e)(3)(ii)  24-Hour course for occasional site workers

1910.120(e)(3)(iii) 24-Hour course for regular workers on fully characterized sites
