Overview

HAZWOPER: Understanding HAZWOPER

In 1990 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enacted the rule for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response also known as HAZWOPER. The video begins by describing what HAZWOPER is and how this rule affects employees and employers who work with hazardous materials.

This hazardous waste operations training discusses the difference between a health and physical hazard, as well as the descriptions for each deemed by OSHA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Some physical hazards mentioned include explosives, combustibles, or non-flammable gases. Health hazards include toxics, corrosive, and irritants. The video explains policies for transporting and handling hazardous materials.

Under the HAZWOPER rule employees must meet training requirements to work with hazardous substances. The video explains the type of training each employee must receive. Training is based on one's level of exposure and their experience working with hazardous substances.

The video goes into great detail about the policies and procedures covered under the HAZWOPER standard, and how following these rules keeps employees safe when dealing with hazmat substances.

This course has been updated to include GHS container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for GHS compliance.
