Spill Response - Training Plus - Health & Safety Courses
Half day Certificate of Attendance

Course Summary

More than half of transport, logistics and distribution operators have suffered a major environmentally-hazardous spill, according to new research by the Environment Agency and the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF).
Spillages on site can have far reaching effects on your business, that is why it is critical that all spillages are controlled as quickly and safely as possible. Adequate spillage training for your team is the only way to prepare.
Spillages or loss of control of substances can happen to almost all companies. This can range from chemical plants operating to the COMAH legislation, to transportation and courier companies that will be moving client packages with no knowledge of the contents or the emergency actions required in the event of a spillage.
Not only may there be environmental implications, there are always implications on the health of your staff. This half-day programme is designed for operators who form part of your first response to a spillage or loss of containment of hazardous substances.
