HAZWOPER General Site Worker 8-Hour Refresher – Module 1 – Introduction to HAZWOPER


Workers and emergency responders who cleanup hazardous waste have a higher rate of exposure to these materials than the average person. OSHA's HAZWOPER Standard helps protect employees involved with hazardous waste cleanup, disposal, and emergency response. This course is the first in a series of modules designed to meet the annual 8-hour refresher requirements for HAZWOPER general site workers. Learners who successfully complete this course should be able to identify activities covered by HAZWOPER and employee roles, recognize regulatory requirements during hazardous waste cleanup, identify OSHA organizational requirements, and job functions related to site cleanup.
