Department of Energy

Training provided for Department of Energy (DOE) workers includes Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER), 10 CFR 851 Final Rule A and Radiation Worker courses. HAZWOPER courses are also available for other non-DOE workers who handle, store, recover and process hazardous materials.


The USWTMC offers HAZWOPER 40-, 24- and eight-hour courses.

The 40-hour course is specifically designed to meet the requirements in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120.

OSHA CFR 1910.120 is for workers who are involved in clean-up operations, voluntary clean-up operations, emergency response operations, and storage, disposal or treatment of hazardous substances or uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. The 24-hour course covers broad issues pertaining to the hazard recognition at work sites. OSHA developed the HAZWOPER requirements to provide workers with the important information they need to work at and around the hazardous sites, and also devised extensive regulations to ensure their safety and health. The eight-hour course is designed to meet the requirements in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 for annual refresher training, for workers who may be assigned the work mentioned above.
