First Response, Implementing ICE, Risk Assessment, PPE & Spill Kits

Course Description

We've made them, sold them, used them and now we train people in using them. Spill Kit Training is a lively and interesting course, which is designed to fill both the needs of ISO14001 accreditation and legislation compliance. The main objective of this course is to ensure that those designated to respond to an incident and use the site spill kit know what to do. This is a very practical course, designed for the hands on delegate. The course takes delegates through a series of role play modules where they will be set a series of spill scenarios relevant to your site conditions and chemical inventory, asked to effect a response. Then, through discussion and guidance by the trainer, any hazards exposed will be explained and the correct actions agreed.

Who should attend?

  • Members of the designated spill team
  • Spill Team Leaders

  • Any member of staff who may be asked to use your spill response inventory
