OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Certification Training

Online Course: ID# 1003468
About This Course:
Our OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online course provides in-depth training on how to perform post-emergency response activities and cleanups/remediation at industrial sites, Superfund and RCRA corrective action sites, and voluntary cleanups involving hazardous substances.

Training includes hazard recognition, exposure limits and risk evaluation for chemical and general site safety concerns. You will review the technology and methods available to monitor and detect hazardous materials, learn how to control and contain chemical spills, establish a decontamination process and select and use worker protective equipment, among a wide variety of other subjects.

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, he or she is 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.


The objectives of the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER are to meet the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) for general industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i) for construction.
