40-Hour HAZWOPER Initial Site Worker
COURSE DESCRIPTION: 40-Hour OSHA HAZWOPER Course meets the requirements for initial classroom training prescribed under OSHA 29 CFR1910.120 (e and q). Workers attending this instructor-led seminar will cover 18 different OSHA suggested topics including Health and Safety Procedures, PPE used during work operations at hazardous material sites, Medical Monitoring and many others. Workers that are involved in direct clean-up actions (such as construction, Hazardous Waste Operations, Hazardous Materials Handling) and positions normally referred to as: Hazmat Operations, First Responder, Emergency Responders, Firemen, Site Safety Officer and Site Supervisors typically need to take the 40-Hour OSHA HAZWOPER training.
Our seasoned Instructors emphasize a practical approach to worksite health and safety so that attendees understand AND learn to recognize site hazards along with the appropriate steps to prevent illness or injuries on the jobsite. The 40-Hour OSHA HAZWOPER certification is required for site workers and personnel who remediate (clean-up) hazardous materials at controlled and un-controlled hazardous sites or who have the potential for exposure to IDLH (Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health) atmospheres. The major emphasis of our 40-Hour HAZWOPER is providing participants the ability to evaluate site conditions, recognize situations which may or may not be within their abilities, and to evaluate conditions where assistance is required.
