OSHA has developed the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER) 24-Hour training course to protect workers at hazardous sites and has devised extensive regulations to ensure their safety and health. While the 24-Hour HAZWOPER course gives students a thorough overview to the equipment that is available to HAZWOPER workers, it does not cover it in the same detail as the 40-hour HAZWOPER training.
Who Needs OSHA 24-Hour HAZWOPER Training?
The OSHA 24-HAZWOPER course was designed for workers and supervisory personnel that do not fall under the 40-Hour training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(ii) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(iii).
This 100% online course meets training requirements for employees, such as:
- Newly hired workers

- Audio narration and interactive exercises

The entire course consists of 5 modules containing 23 lessons plus final exam:
- Agencies and Regulations
- Types of Hazards
- Hazard Communication
- Levels of Protection
- Detecting Hazardous Materials
- Hazardous Waste
- Confined Space

Per 1910.120(e)(4), Management and supervisor training may be reduced from 40 hours to 24 hours and one day if the only area of their responsibility is employees covered by paragraphs (e)(3)(ii) and (e)(3)(iii)) under this part, and at least eight additional hours of specialized training at the time of job assignment on such topics as, but not limited to, the employer's safety and health program and the associated employee training program, personal protective equipment program, spill containment program, and health hazard monitoring procedure and techniques.
