Hazmat/Hazwoper

Hazwoper 40 hour

Our 40-hour Hazwoper course develops the advanced training necessary to confidently handle any size hazardous materials clean-up or waste site. Compliant with OSHA’s Hazwoper Standard 1910.120, students will spend the beginning of the course in the classroom developing the skills to properly read Safety Data Sheets (SDS’s), choose proper protective equipment, and select the most effective strategies and tactics to properly clean up the spill.

The later portion of the class is spent in “real-life” scenarios donning level A & B protective ensembles, working to solve a variety of hands-on scenarios, and practicing the skills learned in the classroom at the beginning of the course.

Our Hazwoper courses are designed to stress students with simulated “real-life” or specific historical scenarios and situations that push them mentally and physically. This intensive type of training allows students to learn how to handle complicated incidents.

This 40-hour course teaches students to:

  1. Properly identify and quantify chemical emergencies.
  2. Evaluate the physical and chemical properties of the chemical that they are working with and use that information to choose the best level of chemical protection and response tactics.
  3. Choose the best monitors for the situation that can help identify and quantify the chemical where they are working.

Course Length: 40 Hours

Skills Taught
: Hazmat recognition, identification, selection of PPE, implementation of offensive tactics, advanced decontamination, site management, and advanced incident command.

Who Needs This Class:
This class is required for general site workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel) engaged in hazardous substance removal or other activities which expose (or potentially) expose employees to hazardous substances and health hazards. These individuals must receive at least 40 hours of training off-site, and a minimum of three days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor. This course covers the requirements for the off-site training. CS Consulting is happy to also help you with the onsite supervision to ensure full compliance and proficiency with their tasks. Ask for more information on the on-site supervision.

Hazwoper 24 hour

Our 24-hour Hazwoper course is a shortened version of our 40-hour course and is geared for workers who only occasionally work on Hazwoper locations and are only required to perform a specific and limited task.  This 24 hours course introduces and develops the skills to keep employees safe when working around chemical spills. Compliant with OSHA’s Hazwoper Standard 1910.120, students will spend the beginning of the course in the classroom developing the skills to properly read Safety Data Sheets (SDS’s), choose proper protective equipment, and select the most effective strategies and tactics to properly clean up the spill.

The last portion of the class is spent going over case studies and/or hands-on scenarios which might require them to donn level B protective ensembles, working to solve a variety of hands-on scenarios, and practicing the skills learned in the classroom at the beginning of the course.

Hazwoper 8 hour refresher

Our 8 hour hands-on Hazwoper refresher focuses on maintaining and building on the foundation created in their initial 24 or 40 hour training. This course is usually customized to the students in each class and can focus on the technical and scientific portion that students struggle with most; or we can focus more on full scale hands-on scenarios to build familiarity and proficiency with their hazmat equipment. With very little formal classroom time, the course spends the majority of the day having students deal with a variety of problem solving scenarios, and work stations where they can become more proficient at dealing with hazmat spills. Whether you are trained at the 24 hour or the 40 hour level, this course gives you the renewed hands-on training to keep up with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to keep you safe.

Course Length: 8 Hours

Skills Taught
: Students will start the morning off with classroom review of regulations, changes and advances to the industry and review any incidents that they have been involved with in the past year. The second half of the day will be spent with tabletop scenarios, hands on activities, and a review of effective and ineffective tactics.

Who Needs This Class: This course is required for employees who have already completed their initial 24 or 40 hour hazwoper or hazmat training. At least 8 hours of training is required annually to maintain their initial training.

Hazmat/Hazwoper Awareness – 4 hour

Our 4 hour hazmat awareness level training is geared toward individuals who are not expected to suit up and actively respond to a hazmat release but are likely to witness or identify a hazmat incident occur. These individuals are those who are expected to recognize that a release has occurred, notify the proper supervisors and authorities, and isolate the release from the public.

This course covers the following:

  1. What hazardous substances are, and the risks associated with them in an incident.
  2. The potential outcomes associated with an emergency created when hazardous substances are present.
  3. Recognizing the presence of hazardous substances in an emergency.
  4. Identification of hazardous substances.
  5. The roles of the first responders at the awareness level including site security and control; and the ability to properly use the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG).
  6. Realizing the need for additional resources, and how to make appropriate notifications.

Course Length: 4 Hours
