OSHA requires that anyone who will be working on hazardous waste sites (including Brownfields) must take this health and safety course.
Who Should Attend?
You may take the 24-Hour course instead of the full 40-hour course if you will NOT be exposed to hazardous materials and will not be required to wear a respirator while working in or around a hazardous waste site. (Many companies require all employees entering their site be 40-hour HazWOPER trained). 24-hour HazWOPER training is recommended for environmental professional, engineers, geologists, drillers, surveyors, contractors, and operators. Health & Safety Officers will need to take the full 40-Hour course.
What You Will Learn:
In this 24-Hour Hazardous Waste Operations course, students will learn the requirements under OSHA CFR 1910.120 (1926.65) and how to apply its requirements to their work. They will understand—and be able to identify—a wide range of hazards. Most importantly they will be able to determine the appropriate control methods to keep themselves and coworkers safe. Emilcott uses lecture, field activities, group workshops and problem-solving drills to cover course topics, which include:
- Regulatory Requirements and Hazardous Waste Industry
- Most recent regulatory changes
- Hazard Assessments
- Hazard Communications and hazardous chemical hazards
- Hazard Control Methods
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Respirators and SCBA
- Air monitoring
**Value added: Respirator Fit testing conducted during the class
