Certification Information

HAZWOPER certification is always the responsibility of the employer. We issue a course certificate indicating that the employee demonstrated competence on both the hands-on and classroom portions of the training. The employer must then ensure that the employee works for three days with supervision before being allowed to work unsupervised.

OSHA HAZWOPER requirements (29 CFR 1910.120(b-o) and 1926.59(b-o)) for cleanup operations apply to all employees who work at the site of an ordered cleanup or who are contracted to cleanup a release after a HAZWOPER emergency response has occurred concerning an OSHA hazardous substance.
