OSHA 40 hr HAZWOPER Course
OSHA has developed the HAZWOPER program to protect workers at hazardous sites. These extensive regulations ensure their safety and health when followed correctly. All of our HAZWOPER courses comply with OSHA regulations .
The HAZWOPER 40-hour course has been reviewed and accepted by OSHA for online distribution.
HAZWOPER 40-hour is required for workers that perform activities that expose or potentially expose them to hazardous substances.
This course is specifically designed for workers who are involved in clean-up operations, voluntary clean-up operations, emergency response operations, and storage, disposal, or treatment of hazardous substances or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Topics include protection against hazardous chemicals, elimination of hazardous chemicals, safety of workers and the environment and OSHA regulations. This course covers topics included in 29 CFR 1910.120.
For those students who are looking to take the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER training from their computer via the internet, we offer a course that can be completed entirely online.
Instead of hands-on training, students are shown over 50 short video clips as if they were at the 8-hour hands-on session. These video clips are required viewing by each participant. The video clips demonstrate HAZWOPER equipment in great detail and students have the advantage to review the videos over and over as needed during their course.
Most users select the online option for their 40 Hour HAZWOPER training, simply because they still find a need for on-site specific equipment training, even after attending a classroom session. This is because the equipment we use and instruct on in our classroom training may not be the exact equipment that the user will be using as part of their job.
It should be noted, however, that the online version does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment that are available to the HAZWOPER worker.
Students that should take this course entirely online are those workers that, while requiring an OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER certification, will not realistically use any of this equipment on any worksite, or those workers who will use this equipment, but are given follow up instruction with on-site specific equipment training that is conducted by the employer.
It should also be noted that a worker who has taken the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER entirely online may warrant more training if, in the future, they are required to use specialized equipment.
Taking the training online and having training on-site by the employer is really the best option as it provides the best of both situations.
We also offer the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Combo course that includes hands-on training as an option.Click Here To Enroll
