HAZWOPER Training: Who Needs What, How Much, How Often and Response Plan Requirements - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with HAZWOPER training and response plan requirements.  

HAZWOPER is the name of the OSHA regulation that sets forth the requirements employers must follow to protect their employees from exposure to the hazardous substances associated with hazardous waste site cleanup operations, as well as with emergency response operations.

However, there is a lot of confusion surrounding who HAZWOPER applies to and in what circumstances. While some workers need eight hours of instruction, others need 24 hours, and still others need 40 hours and several days of field experience. Refresher training is needed, and employers must develop and implement one or more programs or plans. Ensuring that you understand which HAZWOPER requirements apply is crucial to enacting the correct set of training requirements to protect your employees from exposure to the hazards of hazardous substances at your site or facility.

There are many questions that go along with compliance, such as: 

  • When is a spill considered an “emergency response release” that would require an emergency response effort involving HAZWOPER trained employees?
  • What factors determine whether 8, 24, or 40 hours of HAZWOPER training are needed?
  • How is the HAZWOPER standard applied to a treatment, storage and disposal facility?
  • If an employee originally took the 24-hour HAZWOPER training and went more than a year without refresher training, does the employee need to take the original course again?
  • “Can HAZWOPER trained individuals cover multiple small sites or does a “resident” worker of that site have to be trained?

Use this on-demand webinar with Michael Ziskin, president of Field Safety Corporation, on who needs HAZWOPER training, how much, and how often. You will also get important updates on response plan requirements.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the different levels of HAZWOPER training and how they relate to an employee’s assigned role during an emergency response
  • Determine the extent to which you want your employees to be involved in identifying or stopping an emergency
  • Distinguish between an “incidental release” and an “emergency situation
  • Recognize whether you need a HAZWOPER safety and health plan, a medical surveillance program, and/or an emergency response plan
  • Understand how HAZWOPER requirements can apply to hazardous waste generators
