Who takes HAZWOPER awareness training?

HAZWOPER awareness training is critical for employees who may discover a hazardous substance release, or be present when a release occurs. These employees must know their responsibilities for alerting the proper personnel and clearing the area to make room for an effective, organized emergency response.
Note: This course does not satisfy field-based or practical competency HAZWOPER training requirements and does not cover job-site-specific elements of HAZWOPER training found at 29 CFR 1910.120(q). Employers must cover these elements in additional instruction or hands-on training.
