    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


    What is 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training?

    OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training was designed for workers who directly deal with or handle hazardous materials. This includes removing or handling underground tanks or piping, handling contaminated soil and/or groundwater, subsurface investigations, and construction work in which hazardous materials may potentially be present. This Training is also required in situations where HAZMAT is prepared, packaged, labeled, marked, stored, or shipped for disposal and for any facility wherein hazardous wastes are treated, stored, or disposed of.

    How often do I need 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training?

    40 Hour HAZWOPER Certification is good for a year after your initial Certification. After that, you will need to take 8 hour refresher Training annually to learn about any updates or changes to HAZWOPER.

    Can I take 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training online?

    40 Hour HAZWOPER Training can be completed using in-class training or online training, but if you choose the online course, you still will be required to attend an in-class hands-on training portion to get certification!

    How long will it take to get my 40 Hour HAZWOPER Certification?

    Full payment is required before certificates can be released. Once you complete your final exam, we will mail the certificate to the EH&S contact at the company you're employed with. Certificates are shipped twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays, via U.S. mail. Expedited certificates are available if needed. Please call us at 800-711-2706 for information.

    What OSHA standard covers 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training?

    Every 40 Hour Training Course you take must include training requirements under 29 CFR 1910.120(e) and have hands-on Training to be compliant with OSHA and keep workers safe while on the job!

    What is the difference between 24 and 40 Hour HAZWOPER?

    40 Hour HAZWOPER Training is designed more for workers that deal with hazardous materials directly, including facilities where HAZMAT is prepared, packaged, labeled, marked, stored, or shipped for disposal and for any facility wherein hazardous wastes are treated, stored, or disposed of. 24 Hour Training is for workers working at these facilities but who don’t have any responsibility to deal directly or handle any hazardous materials EX: drillers, surveyors, contractors, administrative personnel & drivers. Many companies will make workers get the 40 Hours course to make sure they are ready for any situation just in case.

    How do I get an OSHA HAZWOPER Certification?

    All HAZWOPER courses can be taken either online or in a classroom setting except 40 Hour HAZWOPER and the upgrade from 24 hour to 40 hour training course. Both of these courses must include an in-class hands-on portion to be compliant with OSHA.

    What is the purpose of HAZWOPER?

    OSHA created HAZWOPER, or Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response, to teach employees involved with hazardous waste cleanup, disposal, or emergency response to protect themselves at work.

    What are the levels of HAZWOPER Training?

    There are two HAZWOPER Training levels. 40 Hour HAZWOPER- Workers responsible for cleanup operations. 24 Hour HAZWOPER Training is for Occasional site workers that aren’t involved in cleanup operations. There are also two other courses related to HAZWOPER. The 8 Hour HAZWOPER course is the refresher course for both 24 and 40 Hour HAZWOPER and the 16 Hour Course that upgrades 24 hour certification to 40 Hour!

    What does HAZWOPER Stand for?

    HAZWOPER is an acronym for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.
