Do you know how OSHA defines a “HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations) Emergency Response”? Even though employers often use this term for any activity requiring immediate attention, it has a very specific meaning and application.

If you have an OSHA-defined HAZWOPER Emergency Response, you must comply with HAZWOPER paragraph (q) and all other General Industry (1910) or Construction Industry (1926) standards. This may apply to a Post-Emergency Response Cleanup Operation or to a completely separate Hazardous Waste Site Clean-Up Operation.
