How about an 8-hr Refresher with an
Asbestos Awareness certificate in one course?

Not only does this course fulfill your OSHA annual Hazardous Waste Refresher (HAZWOPER) training requirement under 29 CFR 1910.120, it also gives you information that is applicable to what you do. When you choose this Refresher, you satisfy not only the requirement for your annual Refresher course but also the requirements under OSHA and AHERA for workers whose work may require them to encounter Asbestos.

The course addresses the requirements of both OSHA regulations and can serve as either your initial or refresher course for your Asbestos Awareness course. While a discussion of hazardous materials is a required element of every Hazwoper program, this course takes that discussion to the next level. By taking this course you will know the nature of asbestos, and know the responsibilities of those whose job places them into proximity of asbestos.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS?

Everyone who has taken the 24- or 40- hour OSHA Hazwoper course is required to take an eight-hour annual refresher course. Our course has been designed for workers in the wastewater treatment field. This self-paced program is full of interactive exercises and activities to help you meet that OSHA requirement, with the ability to take it as time permits.

Additionally, because this course has the emphasis on Asbestos Awareness, those whose work involves potential occupational exposure to asbestos will receive the most up-to-date and relevant materials related to these hazards.
