HAZWOPER

The USW Tony Mazzocchi Center offers 40-, 24- and 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher courses.

The 40-hour course is specifically designed to meet the requirements in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120.

CFR 1910.120 is designed for workers who are involved in clean-up operations, voluntary clean-up operations, emergency response operations, and storage, disposal, or treatment of hazardous substances or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. The 24-hour course covers broad issues pertaining to the hazard recognition at work sites. OSHA has developed the HAZWOPER requirements to provide workers with the important information they need to work at and around the hazardous sites, and has devised extensive regulations to ensure their safety and health. The 8-hour course is designed to meet the requirements in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 for annual refresher training for workers at hazardous waste sites.
