Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 8, 24, and 40 hour
- HAZWOPER encompasses the regulations of three federal regulatory agencies: the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Transportation, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is mandated training for personnel who are engaged in the storage, treatment, or disposal of hazardous waste as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.120. It satisfies training contained in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as well as section 126 of the Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act. The 8, 24, and 40 hour classes that we offer, address selection of proper PPE, confinement and spill cleanup, spill mitigation, and the role of the employee during an emergency response.
