When a substance is spilled, someone has to clear it up; either the person who spilt it or possibly a trained response team. Whoever it is, are they prepared or do they merely react to the situation?
A spillage is, at least, an inconvenience; when the quantity is small or the substance is not very hazardous, people don’t think twice about dealing with the problem. But what happens if the substance is around 500 litres of something highly flammable, toxic or corrosive?
Preparation, planning and training are the key to reaching an effective and efficient response. Do you have a spill response plan and how well does it work?
Chemical Spill Response is a one-day training course presented by NCEC – the UK's National Chemical Emergency Centre.
The aim of the course is to provide the knowledge to those working with chemicals to be able identify the hazards and determine the risks associated with a spillage and to provide a framework on which to build an effective spill response plan.
