If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, this course is the right course for you. Our online OSHA 24-Hour HAZWOPER course fulfills the training requirements for certification under 29 CFR, Part 1910.120 (e) as an Occasional Site Worker. OSHA HAZWOPER 24-Hour training and certification is needed if you work in any of the following capacities:

  • Someone who works at a hazardous waste clean up site on an occasional basis like an engineer, project manager, or a surveyor
  • Someone who regularly works with, or cleans up hazardous materials or wastes with exposures within “permissible” levels and that do not require the use of respiratory protection

“The text was easy to read and understand. I really liked the interaction with the instructor via email.
I also liked the idea that I could take my time and spread out my hours spent over many days if needed.”
 – Sebastopol, CA

Further, if you regularly work with hazardous materials in almost any capacity and have never been exposed to HAZWOPER training or learned about OSHA standards, the 24-Hour HAZWOPER courses provide you with all the information that you will need to work safely with these materials. We cover safety, emergency response, and regulatory compliance information to give students the tools they need to competently assess, manage, and solve real life situations. Many organizations mandate HAZWOPER training for employees whose job requirements involve the handling, storage, transportation, or use of hazardous materials and wastes. Simply put, if you work with hazardous substances in the workplace, you will benefit from this program.
