PROFESSIONAL HAZARDOUS MATERIALS TRAINING

What training do I need?

Hazwopper:

40-Hour
Managers, supervisors, equipment operators, and general laborers exposed to hazardous substances, and health and safety hazards on site. In most instances this level pertains to personnel involved in hazardous waste removal. Forty-hour training is mandatory if conditions require respirator use, i.e., exposure above permissible limits.

24-Hour
Occasional workers, including supervisory personnel, on site for limited periods of time for a specific limited task, in areas where exposures are below permissible limits and respiratory protection is not required.

8-Hour Refresher
Annual refresher courses are required for 40- and 24-hour site workers.

See: 29 CFR 1910.120

Right-to-Know:

8-Hour (or as required)
Employees using or exposed to hazardous chemicals in their work area at the time of their initial assignment, and whenever a new physical or health hazard the employees have not previously been trained about is introduced into their work area.

See: 29 CFR 1910.1200

Methamphetamine Labs:

16-Hour Worker
Equipment operators and general laborers on clandestine drug lab (“CDL”) cleanup projects. Note: Drug labs are considered hazardous waste sites; 40-hour training is a prerequisite for the CDL worker course.

8-Hour Supervisor
Additional training is required for supervisory personnel due to increased health/safety and technical responsibilities.
