- LEARNING OUTCOMES
The AdvanceOnline OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER online course provides in-depth training on how to perform post-emergency response activities and cleanups/remediation at industrial sites, Superfund and RCRA corrective action sites, and voluntary cleanups involving hazardous substances. Training includes hazard recognition, exposure limits and risk evaluation for chemical and general site safety concerns. You will review the technology and methods available to monitor and detect hazardous materials, learn how to control and contain chemical spills, establish a decontamination process, and select and use worker protective equipment, among a wide variety of other subjects.
Students who take this HAZWOPER training entirely online are those workers who will receive follow-up instruction with site-specific equipment training conducted by their employer, or those who require 40-hour HAZWOPER training but will not use any equipment on the work site.
It should be noted that the 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online training does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment available to the HAZWOPER worker. On-site, job-specific equipment training provided by the employer is essential to fulfill the HAZWOPER requirement.
The OSHA HAZWOPER 40-Hour online 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. HAZWOPER 40 Hour is required for employees working on a project consisting of Uncontrolled Hazardous Waste Operation mandated by the Government.
This course is intended for all general site workers who remove hazardous waste or who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances or health hazards.
This OSHA 40-Hour HAZWOPER course requires annual 8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training to keep current and comply with OSHA regulations. Refresher training should be completed within one year of completing this initial training course and every year thereafter.
After taking this course, you will be able to:
- Describe OSHA and the HAZWOPER Regulation and other laws related to the HAZWOPER worker;
- Describe the training requirements for HAZWOPER workers;
- Explain the importance of an effective Health and Safety Program;
- List the components of an effective Medical Surveillance Program;
- Perform site characterization and control by identifying site hazards and implementing steps to minimize these hazards;
- Recognize hazardous substances and research their hazards utilizing various reference sources;
- Understand basic toxicology principles and how they relate to chemical exposure;
- Select and utilize proper personal protective equipment (PPE) related to the HAZWOPER worker;
- Understand medical considerations of wearing Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC);
- Understand decontamination methods and the principles of decontamination;
- Understand the physical and chemical properties of hazardous substances;
- Understand the importance of emergency preparedness;
- Demonstrate an awareness of confined spaces;
- Understand the OSHA Hazardous Communication Standard;
- Perform hazardous substance spill and containment techniques;
- Describe various sampling methods and procedures; and
- Understand the detection and monitoring tools available to the HAZWOPER worker.
This course has 9 module exams based upon the first 9 modules. Students are required to complete each exam once they complete all the sections within the corresponding module. The intention is that students take the corresponding exam while the information is still fresh. THERE IS NO FINAL EXAM.
Each exam consists of 10 questions randomly selected from a large pool of questions. A 70% score or better is required to pass each exam. Students who do not pass the exam the first time may retake the exam as many times as necessary in order to pass.
