HAZCOMM and HAZWOPER Courses

HAZWOPER Refresher (FRA/FRO/HMT)

Anyone who has taken the 40-hour HAZWOPER course is required to maintain their certification by taking an 8-Hour annual refresher course. This course satisfies this requirement. Students who complete this course will receive a certificate of completion from UASC. Those employees who require Hazard Communication Training may join the class for the first 2-hours. The first 4-hours will satisfy requirements for FRO, and completion of the 8-hour course will satisfy requirements for HMT.

    GHS - HazComm General Awareness

    The Global Harmonized System (GHS) is an International approach to hazard communication. It is based on major existing systems around the world, including OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HazComm) and the chemical classification and labeling systems of other US agencies. This training program explains how to comply with the GHS changes and compliance requirements under the 2012 OSHA’s Hazardous Communication standard.

    OSHA HAZWOPER Supervisor Initial

    This course is designed to meet the requirements of OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.120(e)(4)) requiring on-site management and supervisors directly involved in HazWoper activities, or who supervise employees engaged in hazardous waste operations to receive at least eight additional hours of specialized training pertaining to their assignments on such topics as, but not limited to, the employer's safety and health program and the associated employee training program, personal protective equipment program, spill containment program, and health hazard monitoring procedure and techniques.

    24 Hour HAZWOPER

    OSHA 29CFR 1910.120, the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standard states that 24-hours of HAZWOPER training are the minimum requirement for those employees whose job does not require them to handle waste or hazardous materials as part of their job. However, if they are required to respond to such incidents as uncontrolled releases or the potential of uncontrolled releases, they must respond as first responders to control and possibly perform cleanup operations. This 24-hour class is not designed to be as in-depth as the 40-hour HAZWOPER course.  

    HAZWOPER Refresher (FRA/FRO/HMT)

    Anyone who has taken the 40-hour HAZWOPER course is required to maintain their certification by taking an 8-Hour annual refresher course. This course satisfies this requirement. Students who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of completion from UASC. Those employees who require Hazard Communication Training may join the class for the first 2-hours. The first 4-hours will satisfy requirements for FRO, and completion of the 8-hour course will satisfy requirements for HMT.   

    Hazard Communication (HAZCOM)

    This course is designed to provide construction, general industry, and office personnel with an understanding of the requirements of OSHA’s HAZCOM Standard. OSHA mandates this training so employees will be able to learn how to read Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and labeling systems, understand various chemical hazards, and how to protect themselves using the proper personal protective equipment. 

    Toxicology

    This course focuses on the study of poisons, their safe limits, and their adverse effects on living organisms. While the subject of toxicology is complex, it is necessary to understand the basic concepts to make logical decisions concerning the protection of personnel from chemical exposure. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. 

    Site Safety and Health Plan Procedures

    This two-hour training is designed to provide on-site and off-site employees with information on the company's site safety and health plan. A site safety plan establishes policies and procedures to protect workers and the public from potential hazards posed by a hazardous waste site. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements.
