This HAZWOPER 16-Hour Upgrade course is designed for current 24 hour qualified personnel who will become general site workers, or who will at least be wearing respirators. Upon completion of this course, and two days of onsite training, attendees will be 40 hour qualified general work site workers. This training is offered in accordance with 8 CCR 5192(e)(3)(D).
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: The HAZWOPER 24-Hour is a prerequisite for this course.
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.
