    Why Do I Need Safety Training?

    When it comes to refresher training for HAZWOPER, OSHA’s standard is very specific: workers must be re-evaluated every year to ensure they are still competent to work safely around hazardous materials.

    The HAZWOPER standard applies to 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. Furthermore, workers who may be involved in an emergency response operation dealing with hazardous waste should be fully trained in HAZWOPER.

    Specifically, OSHA has offered these guidelines about what constitutes a hazardous substance or situation:
    • High concentrations of toxic substances.
    • Situation that is life or injury threatening.
    • Imminent Danger to Life and Health (IDLH) environments.
    • Situation that presents an oxygen deficient atmosphere.
    • Condition that poses a fire or explosion hazard.
    • Situation that required an evacuation of the area.
    • A situation that requires immediate attention because of the danger posed to employees in the area.
