Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Incident Command is an 8 hour course that meets the requirements outlined in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120. The refresher program addresses Incident Command methods as defined by the National Incident Management System (NIMS) using table top exercises and other scenario based activities to establish confidence and proficiency of the student in managing emergencies.
Incident Commanders assume control of a scene. Hazmat Teams report to an incident commander during an incident. If you intend to develop and equip a fully-capable hazmat team, at least one incident commander is required, and often several, depending on the team size and the nature and scope of the potential releases.
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 clean-up operations as specified by 1910.120(a)(1)(i-v) and 1926.65(a)(1)(i-v):
