Hazwoper 40 Training & Certification

Hard Hat Training courses meet all training requirements set by OSHA.

We Offer Three Differnt Types of Safety Trainings

Our OSHA-compliant certification courses are updated to reflect the most recent changes made to safety standards. Whether you want a certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores.

Training Kits

The training kit is for those who want the freedom of doing the training themselves. It's a PowerPoint presentation you can use to train a group of trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Training Course?

Our Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 40-hour training is fully compliant with these regulations, as well as those governing employees working in hazardous waste operations or emergency response.

Our comprehensive 40-Hour course reviews a variety of topics that relate to HAZWOPER, including site characterization, hazard recognition, toxicology, radiation hazards, personal protective equipment (PPE), and decontamination methods. It also covers best practices for preparing for and responding to emergencies that involve hazardous waste.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA. Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following laws and regulations:

Certification Standards

U.S. Standards

  • 29 CFR 1910.120
  • 29 CFR 1926.65
  • Train the Trainer Certification

    The train the trainer option is used to certify a trainer to teach others using the included training kit. It incorporates the online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the training kit. This option results in an OSHA compliant lifetime trainer certification from Hard Hat Training. This certification is not company-specific, meaning you can take it with you should you change employers.

    Why Do I Need Safety Training?

    OSHA’s HAZWOPER Standard requires all employees who are exposed to or handle hazardous materials must take a 24-hour or 40-hour HAZWOPER Training Course before they are permitted to engage in hazardous waste operations (which training they need will depend on an employee’s job function and responsibilities). Additionally, an 8-hour refresher training must be completed annually.

    A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
