HAZWOPER 24-Hour Workshop

OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standard (29 CFR 1910.120) requires at least 24 hours of Technician level training for personnel who will stop, contain, and clean up hazardous substance releases in emergency response situations.


Learn how to safely respond to hazardous substance releases in this interactive course, where you will learn:

  • Hazard recognition
  • Risk assessment
  • Use of field survey equipment
  • Spill control procedures and containment
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Emergency planning and organization
  • Incident Command System
  • Decontamination
  • Incident termination procedures


Use the knowledge and skills gained in the training to take part in exercises, tabletop activities, and hands-on simulated spill response.


The course manual, Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response 24-Hour Handbook, is designed to serve as your primary reference during the 24-hour HAZWOPER training course, and be used as reference on the job site. This handbook covers emergency response activities including hazard recognition and spill control and containment. It also covers requirements for personal protective equipment (including respirators), environmental monitoring, emergency planning and organization, and decontamination.
