About this Course

What is Introduction to HAZWOPER Basics Training? 

This course provides a basic introduction to HAZWOPER (Hazardous Wastes Operation and Emergency Response) standards. You'll get the 10,000-foot view of HAZWOPER's purpose and the various elements of the program.  

We'll touch on site characterization, training programs, medical surveillance, written safety and health programs, and emergency response plans.  We'll also provide a brief look at the precautions taken by HAZWOPER personnel to protect themselves from hazardous waste, like personal protective equipment, decontamination, temporary workplace sanitation, and handling drums and containers. 

Who should take Introduction to HAZWOPER Basics? 

If you need a general overview of HAZWOPER rules, this is the right course for you. Examples include new employees or administrators working adjacent to (but not directly involved in) hazardous waste cleanup, treatment, or storage. 

This is NOT the correct course for you if you are: 

  • Subject to initial 40-hour or 24-hour training requirements 

  • Seeking refresher training for the same 

  • An emergency responder, uncontrolled hazardous waste site operator, or TSDF worker 

  • Facing other hazardous work conditions such as IDLH environments, fire or explosion hazards, oxygen-deficient atmospheres, or high concentrations of hazardous substances 

  • A supervisor of any of the above 

If any of that applies to you, this course does NOT meet (or count towards) your HAZWOPER requirements.
