What is HAZWOPER?
HAZWOPER training is training for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response. This training is specified under OSHA 1910.120. For workers who could be exposed to hazardous waste materials OSHA requires “a minimum of 40 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of three days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor.”
Why would you need HAZWOPER Training in Midland/Odessa
The Midland/Odessa area is world famous for the large amount of oil and gas producing operations. It is possible that a petroleum producing operation could potentially produce hazardous waste. The same is true of a petroleum processing or transporting operation due to the large amount of materials that they handle. For workers in these areas they will receive their initial Basin United orientation in which they learn to avoid hazardous waste releases if they haven’t been trained yet. Workers that respond to contain or clean up hazardous materials releases must receive appropriate HAZWOPER training.
