Hazmat 2016 workshops and scenarios

Hazmat 2016 will have five workshop and scenario sessions that will be run twice to give delegates the opportunity to attend two sessions. Each session will last for approximately 1 hour, 45 mins. 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 2016.


Workshop A – Hazard Categorisation (Field Chemistry)

Run by: Tactical Hazmat
Max number: 24

Back by popular demand! ‘Street Smart’ chemistry. This ‘hands on’ session will focus on basic tests and observations that can easily be applied at the incident scene. As with last year’s Hazmat Master Class this will be a hazard categorisation session using basic field chemistry techniques. The session will encompass both a theory and practical elements.


Workshop B – Emergency Response Training and Operations involving Radiation

Run by: Ciara High Risk
Max number: 16

Aimed at delegates with roles and responsibilities for training, planning and managing Operations and Incidents involving Radiation. This will be a hands-on, realistic and interactive experience supported by actual operational case studies from highly experienced international HazMat responders and former Operational managers from the UK’s specialist military Counter CBRN Unit. The session will provide an opportunity to work through scenario’s supported by the Tracerco range of portable radiation monitoring equipment.


Workshop C – In depth case study

Run by: Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and Staffordshire Constabulary
Max number: 24

Following on from previous year’s very open and honest case study sessions by Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and Staffordshire Constabulary will be sharing their lessons learned from a recent cyanide incident in a walkthrough talkthrough format. Support from NCEC Chemsafe responders will be provided for the scenario walkthrough part of the workshop.


Workshop D – Practical Vapour Detection

Run by: Tactical Hazmat
Max number: 24

This workshop will focus on issues relating to vapour hazards and good practice when sampling and interpreting results from hand held gas monitors. The session will encompass both a theory and practical elements.


Workshop E – Initial Operational Response

Run by: CBRN Centre
Max number: 30

This workshop will focus on the emergency service response to a contaminant release (whether accidental or deliberate). What those effected can expect and what they can do to help themselves.
