HAZWOPER 24-hour Technician Training

Workplace Hygiene's 24-Hour Technician Training Course is designed to satisfy OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.120 Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard 24-hour training requirement for personnel engaged in emergency response activities.

The course provides a balanced mixture of classroom-based instruction and hands-on drills that challenge and stimulate the student. The primary objective of the course is to enable site personnel to respond in an offensive manner to mitigate hazardous materials releases while protecting themselves and other potentially affected parties. Effective response can limit or prevent losses due to injury, property damage, downtime, or releases to the environment. The course focus is on possible emergencies that may develop during routine business activities.
