This training is designed for workers and managers at uncontrolled hazardous waste operations who previously completed 40- or 24-hour HAZWOPER training.
The goal of refresher training is to ensure workers stay competent and up to date on safety practices related to operations involving hazardous substances.
Who Needs OSHA 8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher Training?
Workers at uncontrolled hazardous waste operations and those involved in emergency response actions must receive eight hours of HAZWOPER refresher training each year.
If you completed 40-hour HAZWOPER training or 24-hour HAZWOPER training, you must take the 8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher course annually as required by OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.120.
Roles at HAZWOPER sites that require refresher training include:
- Equipment operators
- General laborers
- Hazardous materials technicians
- Hazardous materials specialists
- Hazardous materials supervisors
- On-scene incident commanders
- Other general site workers
- On-site management and supervisory personnel
Workers must complete eight hours of HAZWOPER Refresher training within 12 months of the anniversary date of their previous HAZWOPER training. Employees who fail to meet this requirement may need to repeat their initial training.
This instructor lead course satisfies OSHA’s 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher training requirement at a low price. Students will receive a Certificate of Completion upon successful completion of their training.
How Long Does HAZWOPER 8 Certification Last?
The certification from an 8-hour HAZWOPER course is valid for up to 12 months. You’ll be required to retake the HAZWOPER Refresher course every 12 months to keep your certification. If you miss the deadline, you may be required to complete your original 40-hour or 24-hour HAZWOPER training again.
