Who takes this 8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training?

This 8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training is intended for personnel who work at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites, e.g., Superfund sites, including managers, supervisors, and any employees who may be exposed to hazardous substances and health hazards during cleanup activities—including those with non-cleanup duties, like utility workers.

Common job responsibilities include assessing the site, operating equipment on site, excavating drums and other containers, monitoring hazardous substances, taking environmental samples, handling drums of hazardous waste, supervising personnel, and more.

Additional HAZWOPER training required

General site workers must complete 8 hours of refresher HAZWOPER training and complete a minimum of three days of actual field experience under direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor.

This course is designed to meet the 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher training requirement only and does not include hands-on training on equipment that employees may need to begin work at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
