Responding to a thimbleful or a lorry load? The value of proportional advice in chemical incident response.

The majority of chemical incidents attended by emergency service crews typically involve spills between 1 and 25 litres. However, most chemical hazard databases only provide advice on handling spills of 200 litres or more. This often leads emergency services to over deploy when attending a chemical incident and incur unnecessary expense in terms of time, money and resources.

In a new webinar, ‘Responding to a thimbleful or a lorry load? The value of proportionate advice in chemical incident response’, NCEC will demonstrate the value of proportionate advice in chemical incident response using a number of case studies and scenarios.

In this complimentary webinar, NCEC's experts will:

  • Explore the concept of proportionate advice and explain its benefits so that you’re completely aware of the advantages of its practical application during the course of a chemical incident.
  • Provide practical examples demonstrating its value so that you can understand its value in the context of a chemical incident and how it can save you time, money and resources when responding to an emergency involving hazardous materials.
  • Provide an overview of how NCEC solves this problem understand how NCEC’s hazardous chemicals database, Chemdata®, delivers four levels of proportionate advice to cater for very small, small medium and large spills to in support an appropriate response to a chemical incident.

This webinar is designed for anyone involved in responding to an incident involving hazardous materials. This includes:

  • Emergency responders
  • Firefighters
  • Paramedics
  • Police officers
  • Emergency operators
