Are you someone who supervises the activities of those who have 24- or 40-hour HAZWOPER certifications?
If you do supervise either General or Occasional Site Workers, OSHA requires that you take this additional Hazardous Waste Supervisor training program. Like our other online hazardous material courses, it too is filled with exercises and interactive projects that help you to learn the material in a self-paced manner. Upon completion of the OSHA Hazardous Waste Supervisor training course, an OSHA 8 Hour Hazardous Waste Supervisor certificate is issued that shows that you have fully satisfied the OSHA requirements for a Hazardous Waste Supervisor.
Don’t forget! A Supervisor course does not satisfy your annual Hazwoper refresher requirement.
Who Should Take This Course?
Hazwoper supervisor training helps ensure people in leadership positions understand the role they play in protecting workers. Our 8-hour hazardous waste supervisor course is intended for people who will supervise workers at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Supervisors who should take this course include people who manage employees responsible for emergency response activities and hazardous waste clean-up, treatment and disposal.
If you will supervise any employee required to complete OSHA Hazwoper 24-hour or 40-hour training, you will need to first become a hazardous waste supervisor. If you’re not sure whether any of the employees you will supervise fall under this requirement, check with your employer.
Keep in mind that supervisors also need to obtain and maintain general Hazwoper certification. If you supervise employees required to complete 40-hour training, you will also need to complete 40-hour training. If you supervise employees required to completed 24-hour training, the shorter course is adequate.
Industries That Require This Course
Workers in a range of industries require Hazwoper training. As a result, many supervisors in these industries must hold hazardous waste supervisor certification. You may need this course if you will supervise workers in:
- Emergency response
- Hazardous materials handling
- Hazardous waste storage, treatment and disposal
- Uncontrolled hazardous waste site operations

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?
This 8-hour hazardous waste supervisor course covers the requirements outlined in OSHA 29 CFR, Part 1910.120(e)(4). This regulation requires individuals who oversee hazardous waste operations to complete eight hours of specialized supervisor training in addition to initial Hazwoper training. Hazwoper supervisor training is a one-time requirement, so once you become certified, you do not need to take the course again.
Can This Course Double As A Regular 8-Hour Hazwoper Refresher?
Although some of the topics covered in supervisor training may overlap with the topics covered in an annual Hazwoper refresher course, one cannot be substituted for the other. In general, OSHA expects individuals to complete at least 16 hours of training during the year they become a supervisor — eight hours of employee refresher training and eight hours of supervisor and management training.
This course covers all the topics specified in Hazwoper supervisor training requirements. You can expect to learn about supervisor regulations, site safety plans, medical surveillance, personal protective equipment, spill containment, worker training requirements and more.
Students will have to go through all modules in order to unlock the final exam at the end of the course. You will need a computer or iPad with Internet access and an email account. No text is required; all course materials are available online. The course will take approximately 8 hours to complete but you can come and go as you need.
Passing this course requires completing the multiple choice or true/false exam with a grade of 75% or better. If you do not receive a grade of at least 75% on the final quiz, you may retake the quiz up to a total of three (3) times.
Course Schedule and Deadlines
The course is designed to be self-paced. You will have 60 days to complete it and can come and go as you need. After two months, you will need to re-enroll. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a pdf certificate right away.
