A wide range of regulations govern the safe storage, use and transportation of chemicals. In almost all regulations, training is a stipulated requirement. At NCEC, we recognise the importance of chemical safety training and have designed training material aimed at helping you keep your staff safe, comply with legislation and react pro-actively should a spillage occur.
Our strong relationships with the chemical industry and emergency response organisations help us develop and refine our training courses which are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The training material is designed using a modular approach and while we have a range of set courses to choose from, the modular nature offers the flexibility to tailor the content and build a course to suit your needs.
New online training modules now available to help fire and rescue service crews prepare for emergency chemical hazards
From mercury spillages and chemical fatalities to clandestine drug laboratories and high consequence chemicals, NCEC’s new online training modules will help you prepare for the range of emerging and existing chemical hazards encountered in the field.
Developed by NCEC’s team of trained chemists and emergency responders, the modules offer essential information on the underlying chemistry, reactivity and hazards of a range of chemicals and situations; and best practice for reducing the impact so you're prepared to deal with the worst when it happens.
The courses on offer include:
On successful completion of each module NCEC will provide certification and issue refresher reminders for future training.
