Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Requirements

HAZWOPER Training CoursesHAZWOPER is a set of guidelines produced and maintained by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which regulates hazardous waste operations and emergency services in the United States and its territories. With these guidelines, the U.S. government regulates hazardous wastes and dangerous goods from inception to disposal.

HAZWOPER applies to five groups of employers and their employees. This includes employees who are exposed (or potentially exposed) to hazardous substances (including hazardous waste) and who are engaged in one of the following operations as specified by OSHA regulations 1910.120(a)(1)(i-v) and 1926.65(a)(1)(i-v).

  • Cleanup operations required by a governmental body (federal, state, local or other) involving hazardous substances conducted at uncontrolled hazardous-waste sites.
  • Corrective actions involving clean-up operations at sites covered by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) as amended (42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.).
  • Voluntary cleanup operations at sites recognized by a federal, state, local, or other governmental body as uncontrolled hazardous-waste sites.
  • Operations involving hazardous waste which are conducted at treatment, storage and disposal facilities regulated by Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, parts 264 and 265 pursuant to the RCRA, or by agencies under agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to implement RCRA regulations.
  • Emergency response operations for releases of, or substantial threats of release of, hazardous substances (regardless of the hazard's location).

The most commonly used manual for HAZWOPER activities is Department of Health and Human Services Publication 85–115, Occupational Safety and Health Guidance Manual for Hazardous Waste Site Activities (PDF - as 85-115.pdf (142 pages, 5,116K). Written for government contractors and first responders, the manual lists safety requirements for cleanups and emergency-response operations.

HAZWOPER Training Sequence

  • Step 1. Complete either the 24 hour or 40 hour HAZWOPER training course. There are no prerequisites for these courses.
  • Step 2. Perform any additional site-specific training certification as directed by employer. Additional HAZWOPER training is performed and certified by the trainer and employer.
  • Step 3. HAZWOPER Supervisor Training. This training requires you complete either a 24 hour or 40 hour HAZWOPER course prior to enrolling in a supervisor course.
  • Step 4. HAZWOPER 8 hour Annual Refresher course is required to maintain 40 hour, 24 hour, and Supervisor certifications.

HAZWOPER Training Levels
There are three levels for HAZWOPER training as listed in the OSHA 1910.120 regulations. Within these 3 categories are various job functions and training requirements. Each of these levels offer HAZWOPER certification for the different job functions.

1. Emergency Response

  • First Responder
  • HAZMAT Technician
  • HAZMAT Specialist
  • Incident Commander

2. Cleanup of Contaminated Hazardous Waste Sites

  • 40 hour HAZWOPER Site Worker
  • 24 hour HAZWOPER Site Worker
  • HAZWOPER Supervisor

3. Treatment, Storage, and Disposal (TSD) of Hazardous Waste

  • 24 hour HAZWOPER Site Worker

Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Regulations

RCRA Training CoursesThe RCRA regulations are contained in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) - Protection of Environment: Parts 239 through 282 (See below).

In any given state, EPA or the state's hazardous waste regulatory agency enforces hazardous waste laws. EPA encourages states to assume primary responsibility for implementing a hazardous waste program through state adoption, authorization and implementation of the regulations.

Non-hazardous Waste

Title 40 of the CFR parts 239 through 259 contain the regulations for solid waste. The requirements for underground storage tanks, which are also regulated under RCRA, are located in title 40 CFR part 280. A list of all solid waste regulations with links to the regulatory text is provided below:


Hazardous Waste

The regulations governing hazardous waste identification, classification, generation, management and disposal are found in title 40 CFR parts 260 through 273.

 

Other RCRA regulations

EPA also established regulations for managing used oil and standards for underground storage tanks, which can be found in title 40 CFR parts 279 through 282. 

 

New Miner Training Resources

New MSHA Miner Training CourseTraining Requirements
The timeline below should help clarify the minimum MSHA Part 46 training requirements.

Prior to taking any of these courses, you should confirm which training is required by your employer and that your employer accepts this training as part of an approved training plan.

While these regulations refer to “Miners,” MSHA requires that mining contractors who perform work at surface mines on a regular basis to have all of the same training as a surface miner.

New Miner Training (30 CFR Part 46.5)

  • A person beginning employment as a miner or an independent contractor performing work at a mine is considered a New Miner.
  • New Miners require a minimum of 24 hours of training in 9 subjects within their first 90 days of employment.

Mold Inspector Resources

NAMP Certified Mold Inspector Training CourseIntroduction to Molds
Molds produce and release millions of spores small enough to be air-, water-, or insect-borne. They can also produce toxic agents known as mycotoxins. Spores and mycotoxins can have negative effects on human health.

For those people who are affected by mold exposures there can be a wide variation in how they react. People at greatest risk of health effects are individuals with allergies, asthma, sinusitis, or other respiratory conditions, as well as infants and children, elderly people, and pregnant women. In addition, individuals with a weakened immune system are at risk.

Confined Spaces

With regard to confined spaces in construction, OSHA Standard 1926.21 (b)(6)(i) states: “All employees required to enter into confined or enclosed spaces shall be instructed as to the nature of the hazards involved, the necessary precautions to be taken, and in the use of protective and emergency equipment required”.

While OSHA standards do not required the construction industry to have a written program for confined spaces, we strongly recommend you develop one if needed, and use the OSHA General lndustry 29 CFR 1910.146 – Permit Required Confined Spaces standard as a guide for best practices. Links to information relating to the general industry standard are listed below:

Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP)

SHARPThe Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) is designed to provide incentives and support to employers to develop, implement and continuously improve effective safety and health programs at their worksite. SHARP provides recognition for employers who demonstrate exemplary achievements in workplace safety and health. These companies are exempted from a general scheduled Federal OSHA inspection for one to two years.

How Can My Company Participate In SHARP?

To participate in SHARP, you must:

  • Request a consultation visit that involves a complete hazard identification survey;
  • Involve employees in the consultation process;
  • Correct all hazards identified by the consultant;
  • Implement and maintain a safety and health management system that, at a minimum, addresses OSHA’s 1989 Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines;
  • Lower your company’s Lost-Workday Injury and Illness rate (LWDII) and Total Recordable Case Rate (TRCR) below the national average; and
  • Agree to notify your state Consultation Project Office prior to making any changes in the working conditions or introducing new hazards into the workplace
