The HAZWOPER 24-Hour training course is intended to meet the classroom training requirements in OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.120 for workers on a regulated site who have limited exposure to hazardous substances, but may still participate in clean-up operations, operations involving hazardous waste at a facility or controlled emergency response operations.

This training course also applies to workers on site only occasionally, for a specific limited task.
This course covers broad issues pertaining to the hazard recognition at work sites. OSHA has developed the HAZWOPER program to protect the workers working at hazardous sites and devised extensive regulations to ensure their safety and health. This course, while identifying different types of hazards, also suggests possible precautions and protective measures to reduce or eliminate hazards at the work place.
