OSHA CFR 1910.120(e) states that General Site Workers must receive 40 hours of training off site. A General Site Worker is one who works on the site every day and is typically exposed to hazardous materials that are equal to or over the Permissable Exposure Level.

The General Site Worker must also receive at least three days of actual field experience under a trained, seasoned supervisor. The three days field experience under a trained, experienced supervisor are the responsibility of the student's employer or potential employer. It is important to note that the worker must have completed the 40 hours of off-site training before entering the jobsite.

Occasional Site Workers are those who are only exposed to under the Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL). These workers are typically managers, supervisors, surveyors, dirvers, etc. Those workers may take the 24 Hour Hazwoper Course. The Occasional Site Worker only needs one(1) day of field experience as certified by their employer.

The 40 hour Hazwoper training course is specifically designed for workers who are involved in clean-up operations, voluntary clean-up operations, emergency response operations, and storage, disposal, or treatment of hazardous substances or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
