We do offer Hazwoper training!!!
8 Hour Refresher, 24 Hour & Hazwoper 40 Hour Training
HAZWOPER 8-hour Annual Refresher Classroom Training -Meets the Federal requirement for annual Hazwoper training, for those workers who are employed or visit hazardous work environments. All students must have previously enrolled in and completed the 24-hour or 40-hour HAZWOPER Training course. OSHA regulations, in 29 CFR 1910.120, requires employees and contractors who work with hazardous material to refresh their earlier Hazwoper safety training. This ensures that you will be better prepared to meet the demands and the potential dangers of not only working in and around hazardous work environments but also how to better protect both yourself and your workers that are around and even in these toxic sites.
HAZWOPER 8-hour First Responder 8-hour First Responder strives to train individuals who will be involved with Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER). HAZWOPER first responders at the operations level are individuals who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response to the site for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion without actually trying to stop the release. Their function is to contain the release from a safe distance, keep it from spreading, and prevent exposures.
HAZWOPER 24-hour Training HAZWOPER 24 Hour Training is required for employees visiting an Uncontrolled Hazardous Waste Operation mandated by the Government. This course covers broad issues pertaining to the hazard recognition at work sites. OSHA has developed the HAZWOPER program to protect the workers working at hazardous sites and devised extensive regulations to ensure their safety and health. This course, while identifying different types of hazards, also suggests possible precautions and protective measures to reduce or eliminate hazards at the work place.
HAZWOPER 40-hour Training While the introductory 24-hour training presents the fundamentals for HAZWOPER knowledge, the 40-Hour Training is for those individuals whose continued activities put them in contact, or potential contact with hazardous materials. Those 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 are required by law to obtain this training.40 Hour Hazwoper Training Course covers the following topics: - OSHA Regulation Overview - Site Characterization - Hazard recognition - Toxicology - Hazard and Safety Analysis - Hazardous Chemical Awareness - Radiological Hazards - Respiratory Protection - Medical Surveillance - Personal Protective Equipment - Site Control - Decontamination - Air Monitoring - Confined Space Entry - Emergency Procedures - Material Sampling
