OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard, 29 CFR Part 1910.120, highlights the responsibility of employers in providing proper training to all workers who are exposed to hazardous substances. These workers include the following:
You need to complete an initial 40-hour or 24-hour HAZWOPER training depending on your job function and responsibilities before you start working at hazardous waste sites. You also need to take an annual 8-hour refresher course to stay compliant with OSHA’s regulations.

What Is the Difference Between 24-Hour and 40-Hour HAZWOPER Training?
The main difference between 24-hour and 40-hour HAZWOPER is that 40-hour offers more in-depth knowledge on how to deal with hazardous substances safely and a three-day supervised field experience. On the other hand, 24-hour HAZWOPER includes broad issues about hazardous materials identification and cleanup along with a one-day supervised field experience.
Also, 24-hour training is for workers who have limited exposure to hazardous substances while 40-hour is for those who are regularly exposed at or above permissible exposure limits (PELs).
Is the HAZWOPER Test Hard?
You don’t have to worry about failing a HAZWOPER final exam because you only need at least 70% to pass and many training providers allow you to retake the test as many times as you need. This is why choosing a certified training provider who is well-experienced in the industry is important. This makes sure that you get the knowledge and understanding you need to pass the test and get your HAZWOPER certification.
Is OSHA and HAZWOPER the Same?
OSHA is a federal organization that is part of the U.S. Department of Labor. It ensures the health and safety of workers by enforcing standards as well as providing training, education, and compliance assistance. On the other hand, HAZWOPER is one of the OSHA standards that employers and employees need to comply with.
How Long Is OSHA HAZWOPER Good For?
All HAZWOPER certifications are only valid for 12 months. You need to take only one 24-hour or 40-hour initial training and then an annual 8-hour refresher for the succeeding years to maintain your certification. Failing to take the 8-hour annual refresher course might require you to retake your initial training.
