Who Should Take the HAZWOPER 40 Hour Training:
OSHA requires HAZWOPER 40 Hour training for any employee who may be involved in the removal, treatment, storage or disposal of hazardous waste. This includes, but is not limited to, waste water workers, oil and gas workers, contaminated soil or groundwater remediation personnel, remediation crews, employees involved with the removal or handling of underground tanks, construction workers on sites where hazardous wastes are known or expected to exist, have the potential to be encountered, and HAZMAT Emergency Response teams.
Note: The HAZWOPER 40 Hour course (sometimes referred to as OSHA 40 Hour) is the minimum training requirement for all employees who have the potential to come into contact with hazardous waste. Managers and Supervisors on hazardous waste sites require additional training. An 8 Hour Refresher training is required annually in order to maintain current HAZWOPER certification.
