24 Hour Hazardous Materials Technician Online

Course Objectives

The objectives of our OSHA 24 Hour Hazmat Technician are to meet the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(iii) for general industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(6)(iii) for construction. This course is also intended to meet any HAZWOPER training requirements for the EPA and State OSHA regulations.

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(iii) and 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(6)(iii):

Hazardous materials technician. Hazardous materials technicians are individuals who respond to releases or potential releases for the purpose of stopping the release. They assume a more aggressive role than a first responder at the operations level in that they will approach the point of release in order to plug, patch or otherwise stop the release of a hazardous substance. Hazardous materials technicians shall have received at least 24 hours of training equal to the first responder operations level and in addition have competency in the following areas and the employer shall so certify:

  • Know how to implement the employer's emergency response plan.
  • Know the classification, identification and verification of known and unknown materials by using field survey instruments and equipment.
  • Be able to function within an assigned role in the Incident Command System.
  • Know how to select and use proper specialized chemical personal protective equipment provided to the hazardous materials technician.
  • Understand hazard and risk assessment techniques.
  • Be able to perform advance control, containment, and/or confinement operations within the capabilities of the resources and personal protective equipment available with the unit.
  • Understand and implement decontamination procedures.
  • Understand termination procedures.
  • Understand basic chemical and toxicological terminology and behavior.
