This includes supervisors and managers, site workers, safety personnel and technicians who work with or supervisor workers in a hazardous materials environment. Behavior Safety Associates provides site-specific modular HAZWOPER training at your site: Awareness, 8-hour, 24-hour, 40-hour and annual refresher training.
