OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training
OSHA Approved | AIP Certified | Hazardous Waste Handlers
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER is a set of guidelines produced and maintained by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration which regulates hazardous waste operations and emergency services in the United States and Canada.
The HAZWOPER Training program is designed to protect workers that are working at Hazardous Materials Operations or where Cleanups are conducted to ensure their safety and health.
While no specific regulation in Canada currently addresses the training of workers involved with environmental contamination and clean-up, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Regulation 29 CFR 1910.120 is considered the standard for due diligence and is referenced under Provincial duty of care/general duty clauses.
