Hazardous materials can create significant safety issues for employees. HAZWOPER Training from the Detroit Training Center is designed for those individuals who will be responsible for responding to hazardous materials situations on construction and facility maintenance sites. The Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response standard (HAZWOPER) applies to five distinct groups of employers and their employees. This includes any employees who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances--including hazardous waste--and who are engaged in one of the following operations: clean-up operations--required by a governmental body, whether federal, state, local, or other involving hazardous substances--that are conducted at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites; corrective actions involving clean-up operations at sites covered by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) as amended; voluntary clean-up operations at sites recognized by federal, state, local, or other governmental body as uncontrolled hazardous waste sites; operations involving hazardous wastes that are conducted at treatment, storage, and disposal facilities or by agencies under agreement with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to implement RCRA regulations; and emergency response operations for releases of, or substantial threats of releases of, hazardous substances regardless of the location of the hazard.
