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 can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
One of the best trainings I have ever received!
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.
Waste Management Professional
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.
