 8hr Refresher HAZWOPER Training

The key to a safe work environment is a properly trained and certified workforce. Ensure that your employees have the proper training certifications by mandating that your hazardous waste disposal employees have the proper 8-hour OSHA re-certification course in Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER).

HAZWOPER Refresher Training is an annual 8-hour OSHA certificate-level re-certification course. This course is a refresher on the basic occupational safety and health principals learned in the 24-hour HAZWOPER and/or 40-hour HAZWOPER certification training course(s).8hr_hazwoper_refresher_training

The Benefits of Classroom Instruction

Not all HAZWOPER training is alike. At IDR Environmental, we believe that Classroom training is still the most effective training method because of the live, dynamic interactions between the students and the instructor. We believe that students will also:

  • Retain the information much more easily
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions
  • Interact with others in their field
  • Get Certified by Qualified Professional Instructors
