OSHA requires businesses that operate sites where employees, managers, and supervisors experience limited exposure to hazardous materials to provide 24-Hours of initial training.

OSHA Education School offers the HAZWOPER 24-Hour Course for All Industries to meet these mandatory training requirements.
