For several years Holland Engineering has provided Hazwoper Training to select staff members. Every year, these staff members receive their annual 8-hour Refresher Certification to keep current with OSHA Regulations.
This year, we not only had several employees receive their annual refresher training, but we were able to provide three additional staff members with the full 40-hour Hazwoper Certification. This course is required for workers that perform activities that expose or potentially expose them to hazardous substances. This course is specifically designed for workers who are involved in clean-up operations, voluntary clean-up operations, emergency response operations and storage.
Those attending the Hazwoper classes will:
- Understand the purpose of OSHA and its role in regulation occupational safety.
- Use Site Characterization to establish problems that may exist in the workplace and measures that can be implemented to eliminate hazards.
- Identify hazardous materials existent in the workplace and the possible methods, symptoms and preventative measures of exposure.
