Hazmat 2014 will have four workshop and scenario sessions that will be run twice to give delegates the opportunity to attend two sessions. Each session will last approximately 2 hours. Delegates will have the opportunity to register for specific sessions when booking their delegate place. Priority will be given to delegates who have already registered for Hazmat 2014.
Session 1 – Forensics in Hazmats
This session will show delegates a system to help first responders estimate safe, appropriate and proportional initial cordons at emergency hazmat incidents.
Max number: 36
This session will be led by Bob Hark from Tactical Hazmat.
Session 2 – Practical
This will give delegates a practical hands on session looking at DIM equipment and its deployment into a typical powder / liquid scenario. The session requires participants to form teams and there will be a prize for the team that completes the scenario the fastest and most accurate manner.
Max number: 16
This session will be led by Rob Mitchell from Tactical Hazmat
Session 3 – Hands on IDL
Back by popular demand! ‘Street Smart’ chemistry. This ‘hands on’ session will focus on illicit drugs laboratories. As with last year’s Hazmat Master Class this will be a hazard categorisation session using basic field chemistry techniques and observations. The session will encompass both a theory and practical element.
Max number: 24
This session will be led by Kevin Miller from Tactical Hazmat
Session 4 – Scenario
This session involves a table top style incident based on a deliberate incidence of chemical exposure. Delegates will have the opportunity to work through the scenario, hear what actually happened and what lessons were learnt.
Max number: 30
This session will be led by Bethan Davies form NCEC and Graham Turner and Paul Molloy from Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue
