Due to COVID-19, many classes will be concurrently presented in-person with limited seating availability (this listing) as well as online in live, instructor-led webinar format (view the webinar listing here).
Stay in compliance with 29 CFR 1910.120 and 8 CCR 5192 with this annual refresher course.* This course now satisfies 8 CCR 5192 (e) and (p) refresher requirements for emergency response personnel (i.e., those needing to refresh their First Responder Operations, Incident Commander or Hazardous Materials Technician training). This program is updated annually in order to cover any regulatory changes, use of the Emergency Response Guidebook, personal protective equipment trends, chemical hazard classification, field safety, emergency response operations, respiratory protection, and revised hazard assessment techniques. Each student will receive a course manual and a certificate of completion.
*8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training is intended to be completed annually following initial HAZWOPER or other emergency response training (40-Hour HAZWOPER, 24-Hour HAZWOPER, First Responder Operations, Incident Commander, Hazardous Materials Technician) or prior 8-Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training. NOTE: workers not completing a refresher after one year following initial or refresher HAZWOPER training are not permitted to work at a qualified site, and Cal/OSHA requires completion of a refresher within 24 months to avoid having to re-take 40-/24-Hour HAZWOPER training; federal OSHA has set no explicit such time frame.
Individuals who are medically evaluated, present a physician’s written consent, and bring their personal respirator will receive a qualitative fit test free of charge. NES offers a quantitative fit test for an additional fee of $35 (available at our Folsom training facility only; this can be added to your order once you have placed this course in your cart). The test meets the annual fit testing requirement.
This course meets the annual refresher training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120 and 8 CCR 5192 for individuals working at hazardous waste cleanup sites.
