What Does HAZWOPER Stand For?

HAZWOPER stands for The Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard.

Who Needs HAZWOPER Training?

HAZWOPER training is intended for anyone working with high concentrations of hazardous substances and chemicals. It is also necessary for emergency responders who will need to respond to hazardous substance spills or uncontrollable chemical releases.

What is the difference Between 8, 16, 24, 32, and 40-Hour training?

The difference between 8, 24, and 40-hour HAZWOPER training is not merely the number of hours spent training for HAZWOPER standards. But, indeed, the more hours spent in HAZWOPER training, the more detailed and more in-depth the information is. However, what your role in the workplace is will affect which training course you should take. Anyone new to handling hazardous waste or emergency response operations must complete a 40- hour HAZWOPER training course.

All courses, regardless of how long they are, comply with OSHA standards and provide an understanding. They all work to explain the basic principles of safety concerning chemical waste and emergency response. Additionally, each type of HAZWOPER training will require various practical, actual field experiences. For example, OSHA requires three days of field experience for 40-hour training, one day for 24-hour training, and none for 8-hour training unless the trainer determines some field experience is needed.

What Operations Are Covered in HAZWOPER?

HAZWOPER explicitly addresses how to handle hazardous waste at treatment and disposal facilities safely and how to clean up accidental releases of hazardous waste.

The five operations that are covered by the HAZWOPER standard, as outlined by OSHA, are:

  • - Clean-up operations involving hazardous substances and situations that are required by a federal, state, local, or other government body

  • - Corrective actions involving clean-up operations are covered by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)

  • - Operations at treatment, storage, or disposal sites that deal with hazardous waste that RCRA covers

  • - Operations that generate some hazardous waste that is not treatment, storage, or disposal sites

  • - Emergency response operations such as emergency spills or releases of substantial amounts of hazardous substances regardless of where they occur

Does OSHA Require Hands-On Training for The 40-hour HAZWOPER Training?

OSHA does not endorse or approve any training program or trainers, per their policy. For this reason, they do not outline how much hands-on training you need to receive. Instead, they only require some hands-on training component to HAZWOPER training before the three-day field experience.

What is the difference between the 24-Hour and the 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training Courses?

Apart from the difference in time duration to complete the training course, the 24-Hour Course is designed for on-site workers for a specific limited task or a temporary assignment. These workers are unlikely to be exposed to hazardous substances at or above OSHA's permissible exposure limits (PELs) or published exposure limits and therefore do not require respiratory protection.

On the other hand, OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training Certification pertains to general site workers engaged in work operations that could expose or potentially expose them to hazardous substances and health hazards at, or above, OSHA's PELs or Published Exposure Limits. Therefore, workers are required to use appropriate respiratory protection.
