WHAT IS HAZWOPER TRAINING?

One of the most important courses that you will ever take is HAZWOPER training, short for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response. This course is required of many employees by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to prepare them to take immediate action if hazardous substance is released into the environment. Federal rules govern employees who work with hazardous materials and those providing emergency response.

If you are a safety manager, a warehouse owner, an employer with sub-contractors, or a public safety responder, satisfy OSHA requirements by enrolling in SEA Inc.’s 40-hour HAZWOPER training course or the 8-hour refresher course. You can see a calendar of these courses and other offered by SEA Inc. here. Having the proper knowledge to perform cleanups of hazardous waste or respond hazardous materials situations is an important job prerequisite. Fortunately, SEA Inc. has developed a course that will fulfill this need for workers from all economic sectors and will respond to the diverse needs of learners in the training environment.

“We are navigating the waters with the student, if an idea or concept is not fully understood we can discover that quickly and adjust our training to meet the student’s needs. If the concept is known, don’t teach it to them again – just refresh them and move forward: If the concept is unknown, don’t brush over it – teach them.”
