Hazardous waste is a serious problem that continues to endanger humans, animals, and environmental quality. However, as workers clean up hazardous waste sites, they face safety and health hazards. OSHA issued the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard to protect workers during cleanup operations and help them handle the wastes safely and effectively.

When you think of hazardous waste cleanup sites, hazardous waste and other hazardous chemicals come to mind. However, some sites pose radiological and biological hazards. To remain safe in the work environment, it's important that workers have training on these hazards and protective measures to eliminate or reduce their exposure.

This HAZWOPER training course is designed to familiarize workers with the types of radiation they may encounter at work, dose limits, postings, and how to minimize exposure to radiation. It is also designed to inform workers about the different types of biological agents they should be aware of and how to protect themselves from bloodborne pathogens, as well as poisonous plants, animals, and insects.
