This document provides emergency planners with the official federal requirements of the HAZWOPER standards (CFR 1910.120) surrounding HAZMAT responses including team training, definitions, and requirements. This resource can help responders interpret regulations and can illustrate the origin of the requirements for those who are not familiar with HAZMAT regulations. States may have additional regulations, and letters of interpretation from OSHA may provide clarification and/or create additional expectations in addition to these regulations.
