The Chemical Spill Response course is designed to provide you and/or your staff with sufficient knowledge about the theory of spill response to enable you to plan for and respond to incidents in your own organisation, such as a spillage in a laboratory or warehouse, or even a leak from a bulk tanker that has rolled over.
This one-day, modular course teaches chemical hazard awareness coupled with the theory of spill response. There is also the option of adding a practical exercise to test your ability to deal with an incident in your workplace.
NCEC’s Chemical Spill Response course provides you with the ability to recognise hazards and understand the information that accompanies chemicals. It offers a comprehensive view on the properties of chemical substances and how they might behave when spilt. This will help you to fully assess the risks, devise a plan to deal with any spillage and ensure the response team follows a safe way of working
The structure of the course means we are able to customise the content to include the chemicals found at your premises and to incorporate your organisation's spill procedure.
A one-day training course that is ideal for those who are considering setting up or already have a spill response team in their workplace. The core presentation comprises:
Optional practical sessions can be added after the classroom work*. We will work with you to consider the type of spill scenario you wish to cover, then provide a guided practical session for teams to 'have a go' in a realistic, yet safe, environment.
The benefits of including a practical session include:
* Please note that the addition of practical sessions means that the theory modules are abridged.
The Chemical Spill Response course is aimed at anyone involved responding to a chemical spill in the workplace. Past delegates include couriers, waste clean-up contractors, laboratory workers and safety personnel.

Chemical Spill Response – a one-day course covering the theory of providing a good response to a chemical spillage:
Thanks to NCEC for the 'Chemical Spill Response' course. The session was tailored to our requirements, with opportunity for discussion and plenty of good quality hand-outs. The delivery was appropriate for our team of Health and Safety Advisors and the feedback has been positive. I think we all feel better prepared for dealing with chemical emergencies in the future.
