OSHA 8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher Training

While it would be nice to think that once someone completes the main 40-hour or 24-hour HAZWOPER certification there wouldn’t be any further training, however, it is required to have an OSHA 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher every year. OSHA Pros offers this HAZWOPER 8-hour recertification course to keep your team fully compliant with all HAZWOPER standards.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.120 requires this refresher course and it is required to be taken within 12 months of the anniversary date of their previous HAZWOPER training. Our 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course includes:

  • personal protection equipment
  • hazardous materials
  • chemical properties
  • toxicology
  • and much more

Why is the 8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher Course Important?

If someone fails to take the required 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course within 12 months of their certification/recertification date, they may be required to complete the original 40-hour or 24-hour training course to become recertified. According to OSHA, the need to repeat initial training must be determined based on the employee’s familiarity with safety and health procedures used on site.

While this seems ambiguous it really provides the individual organization and site location the ability to make sure that their unique situations are dealt with properly. Missing a due date can happen for a variety of reasons, and it should be noted in the employee’s file as to why the recertification was delayed and when they will be completing the required training. You can help to ensure that recertification isn’t delayed by contacting our team today to reserve your seat in our 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher online course.
