40-Hour HAZWOPER - OTC 204


Course Description:  

The 40-Hour HAZWOPER course is designed to ensure awareness and promote safety among employees who may be exposed to chemical hazards in their workplace. The objective is to ensure that employees operate in the safest possible manner in situations where contact with potentially hazardous materials is likely.

This class is designed to provide students with written and hands- on instruction in hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) as it relates to chemical and physical exposures in industrial and field settings. This course satisfies the requirement for generalized employee training under OSHA (1910.120) and (1926.65).
