HAZWOPER Awareness Training Launched at Lion.com
OSHA requires initial and annual refresher training for personnel responsible for initiating emergency response by alerting the proper authorities or sounding alarms. The new HAZWOPER online course—OSH 308—is designed to satisfy the classroom-based competency training required by 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6).
This interactive, 2-hour online course is designed to satisfy either the initial or annual refresher training requirement for HAZWOPER awareness-level personnel.
HAZWOPER Level 1 Awareness training is required for employees who work around hazardous substances and may discover or witness an emergency release. These personnel do not take emergency response actions, but must be able to identify emergency release situations and notify the appropriate personnel and/or sound alarms.
Who Needs HAZWOPER Awareness Training?
HAZWOPER awareness-level employees must know how to:
- Identify hazardous substances.
- Recognize emergency release situations.
- Understand hazard safety labels (GHS, DOT, NFPA, HMIS).
- Use OSHA Safety Data Sheets and relevant chemical databases.
- Notify proper individuals in the event of a release.

I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.

If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
As always, Lion never disappoints
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
