Program Content

This training program covers the requirements of the OSHA HAZWOPER standard (29CFR 1910.120). This standard sets out the minimum training requirements for site workers on hazardous waste sites, environmental remediation and emergency projects in the United States of America. The quality and comprehensive nature of this standard makes it applicable and attractive to those employers and workers who work at Canadian workplaces that contain environmental contamination or hazardous materials.

Training program topics include:

  • Legislation and standards
  • Hazard recognition and communication
  • WHMIS 1988-2015
  • Toxicology
  • Confined spaces
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Hazardous materials spill control and HAZMAT
  • Decontamination
  • Staging and disposal of contaminated materials
  • Excavation and trenching
  • Lock-out / Tag-out
  • Air quality monitoring
  • Health and Safety Plans (HASP) and Emergency Response Plans
  • Practical culmination exercises
  • Final exam

You will learn by:

  • Classroom interaction with experienced instructors
  • Scenarios and field exercises
  • Demonstration and hands-on training in the care and use of equipment
  • Detailed handouts, videos and quizzes
  • Hands-on, full chemical protective gear mock spill exercises

Who should enroll in this training program? 

The HAZWOPER standard applies to employers and their employees and specifically includes any employees who are exposed to hazardous substances and who are engaged in several operations including clean-up, treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous waste. In addition, workers involved in an emergency response operation dealing with hazardous waste and workers who have to perform duties at a waste site where hazardous materials or contamination are equally expected to be fully trained and protected. Environmental engineers, environmental remediation workers and contractors commonly attend these training programs. If you are looking for training specifically on spill response, click here.
