Training and Preparedness

In every organisation, things always go better when people know what they are doing. When handling hazardous substances, this becomes more important as even the slightest problem may potentially result in serious consequences (e.g. injury, loss of production or environmental pollution).

Reducing Risk and Effectively Managing Incidents

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 several courses aimed at helping you keep your staff safe, ensuring you comply with legislation, showing you how to react should an accident occur, etc.

Our strong relationships with the chemicals industry and emergency response organisations helped us develop and refine our training courses so that they meet the exact needs of people who work where chemicals are handled.

The benefits of our training courses include:

  • Being compliant with legislation.
  • Avoiding costly lost-time incidents and ill health at work.
  • Enjoying a positive health-and-safety culture.
  • Creating a safer working environment.

Whether moving chemicals in a warehouse, handling them on a laboratory bench or responding to a spillage, there is always a legal stipulation for staff to be adequately trained. Our courses can help you comply with a range of legislative requirements. For example:

  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).
  • Risk assessment.
  • Transporting dangerous goods.
  • Control of major accident hazards (COMAH).

Typically, our training courses take just one day and are designed to be delivered at your premises. This not only provides a cost-effective option for you, but also allows the training to be directly relevant to your company by tailoring the content to your specific needs.

We also hold a number of open courses throughout the year. For more details on dates and typical course content, please click on the links.
