Federal and California Regulation OSHA HAZWOPER Standard
The classroom affords the student the opportunity to receive practical experience and the ability to handle the tools and equipment that are available to the HAZWOPER worker.
This version of the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER course may still need to be followed up with on-site specific equipment training because the equipment that is used during the instruction for our classroom training may not be the exact equipment the employee will be using as part of their job function.
General site workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel) engaged in hazardous substance removal or other activities which expose or potentially expose workers to hazardous substances and health hazards shall receive a minimum of 40 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of three days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor.
