Health and Safety Training for Hazardous Waste Workers- 24 Hours

Learn about hazard awareness, waste regulations and exposure, medical monitoring, health and safety planning, laws and rights, personal protective equipment, decontamination, emergency response and site characterization and control as required by 29 CFR 1910.120(e) (3), (T8 CCR 5192 in California) and OSHA’s Hazardous Waste and Emergency Response training standard (HAZWOPER). This course is meant for workers who:

  • Enter hazardous waste sites only occasionally for a specific limited task (i.e., groundwater monitoring, land surveying or geo-physical surveying)
  • Are unlikely to be exposed over permissible exposure limits
  • Work regularly in areas monitored and fully characterized as having under permissible exposure limits, and where respirators are not necessary

Participants receive a certificate upon successful completion.

Please note: Those required to characterize a space, monitor for contaminants or whose jobs exceed the requirements of 24-hour training should instead take Health and Safety Training for Hazardous Waste Workers - 40 hour.
