Hazardous waste is a serious problem that continues to endanger humans, animals, and environmental quality. However, as workers clean up hazardous waste sites, they face safety and health hazards. OSHA issued the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard to protect workers during cleanup operations and help them handle the wastes safely and effectively.

Fires are dangerous on their own, but when hazardous wastes and other hazardous substances are added to the mix, they can quickly become much more volatile. To help prevent injuries and property damage, workers need to be aware of what fire is, work practices to prevent them, systems to detect, signal, and suppress them, and safe measures to take when responding to a fire.

This HAZWOPER training course is designed to address the fire basics at any hazardous waste cleanup site. Those basics include what a fire is, the dangers, prevention strategies, protection systems, the special circumstances they can present when combined with hazardous substances, and how to respond when one erupts at the worksite.
