Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this construction training:

When workers engage in the cleanup, treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous substances as defined in 40 CFR 261.3 and 49 CFR 171.8, they must adhere to the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 standards for hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER). 

Failure to understand and comply with these standards poses serious risks, including chemical burns, skin and eye irritation, and even death. HAZWOPER 40-Hour Course for All Industries helps workers, managers, and supervisors achieve initial compliance to maintain a safe workplace and minimize health risks for employees.

NOTICE: Students must also obtain additional site-specific training, along with three days of actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor.

In addition, on-site supervisors and managers may use this training to fulfill the 40-Hour component of their training requirements.

During this course, students will become familiar with OSHA’s HAZWOPER standard as discussed in 29 CFR 1910.120. Topics for study include:

  • A review of OSHA and the HAZWOPER standard, including important definitions and the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)
  • Recognition and control of hazards
  • Definition of hazardous waste per EPA 40 CFR 261.3 and hazardous materials per DOT 49 CFR 171.
  • Site-specific health and safety plans, medical surveillance programs, and other programs required by regulation
  • Safety best practices for working in confined spaces and around mobile equipment
  • How to identify, evaluate, and control on-site hazards, including health and physical safety, as well as biological, and ergonomic hazards in the work environment
  • An overview of common respiratory hazards, types and appropriate protection protocols
  • How to respond to on-site emergencies and the release of hazardous substances
  • Requirements for HAZWOPER training to achieve compliance with standards 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) for general site workers and 1910.120(e)(4) for on-site managers and supervisors
  • Site characterization
  • The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS)
