Course Description: 24-Hour Hazardous Waste Operations for First Responders (HAZWOPER)

This 3-day course is designed to satisfy the 29 CFR 1910.120 training requirements for employees engaged in emergency response, control, containment, and cleanup of hazardous materials/chemicals released during an incident at your facility. This course satisfies the basic training requirements for HAZMAT Technician, Specialist, and Incident Commander. This course is required for industry that has the potential of accidental release of chemicals. It meets the initial training requirements for occasional site workers on contaminated hazardous waste clean-up sites and or emergency spill responders. The instructor will focus on fixed and transportation related releases engaging the Department of Transportation (DOT) Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) as response tool. This class is SERC (State Emergency Response Commission) Guideline compliant and meets OSHA Standards (below compliance information).
