This OSHA HAZWOPER 16-Hour Online Anytime course was designed for general site workers who have already taken 24 hours of HAZWOPER training but now need to meet their HAZWOPER 40-Hour requirement.

This course focuses on air monitoring and hazard detection, respiratory protection, and chemical protective clothing for sites where exposures can be expected to exceed permissible and published exposure limits. Emergency response protocols and principles of site excavation are also discussed.

A general site worker who is potentially exposed to hazardous substances or health hazards is required to have 40 hours of hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) training, along with three days of supervised field experience. To become a general site worker under these conditions, or if wearing a respirator becomes a job requirement, those certified with 24 hours of HAZWOPER training must take an additional 16 hours to reach the minimum 40 hours required by OSHA. This additional 16 hours of training, along with two additional days of supervised field experience, combine to meet the requirements specified in paragraph (e)(3)(i) of the OSHA HAZWOPER standard, 29 CFR 1910.120.

NOTE: Students must have completed a HAZWOPER 24-hour course in fulfillment of the requirements of OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.120 before taking this course.

To be in compliance with OSHA HAZWOPER regulations, students will also need to obtain additional site-specific training, along with two days of actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor. The two days of field experience is in addition to the one day required for OSHA 24-hour training certification.

Upon successful completion of the course, each student will get a Certificate of Completion that will show the 1.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and 16 Contact Hours received for this course.

  • Workers who are likely to be exposed over permissible exposure limits and published exposure limits
  • Workers regularly on site who work in areas that require the use of respirators
  • Supervisors and managers with 24 hours of HAZWOPER training who are directly responsible for, or who are in charge of general site workers engaged in hazardous waste operations

Also, supervisors and managers with 24 hours of HAZWOPER training who are directly responsible for, or who are in charge of general site workers engaged in hazardous waste operations, may take this course to fulfill the 40-hour OSHA training requirement found in 1910.120, paragraph (e)(4). Note: Paragraph (e)(4) has additional training requirements, beyond 40 hours of initial training, for managers and supervisors.
