Certification Information:

HAZWOPER certification is always the responsibility of the employer. We issue a course certificate indicating that the employee demonstrated competence on both the hands-on and classroom portions of the training. The employer must then ensure that the employee works for one day with supervision before being allowed to work unsupervised.

OSHA HAZWOPER requirements (29 CFR 1910.120 / 1926.59 paragraphs (b)-(o)) for cleanup operations apply to all employees who work at the site of an ordered cleanup or who are contracted to cleanup a release after a HAZWOPER emergency response has occurred concerning an OSHA hazardous substance. An OSHA hazardous substance to include DOT hazardous materials, CERCLA hazardous substances, RCRA hazardous wastes, disease-causing agents, and includes petroleum products with a flashpoint of 200 F or less.

If it is expected that an employee will not be exposed above the OSHA PEL or published exposure limits, the training standard (29 CFR 1910.120(e)) allows a reduced initial training requirement (24 hours instead of the usual 40).

The Institute Limited Site Worker course is designed to help such persons obtain this training. Because of its emphasis on hazard awareness and exposure prevention, it is also a good course for people managing household hazardous waste.
