This course is designed for anyone who may have to respond to an emergency. Often, response teams are trained effectively in the technical aspects of emergency response, but seldom in the non-technical skills. During this course particular attention is given to the development of learners, specifically with regards to situational awareness, decision making, leadership, and teamwork, and other non-technical skills can be included if required. Following theoretical input which makes reference to the research carried out by leading experts and academics, learners take part in scenario based training, during which they implement the knowledge gained during the theoretical session.
Chemdata is the NCEC's professional chemical database. It provides emergency services around the world guidance on handling incidents involving hazardous substances. Chemdata aggregates hazard, precaution and safety information for over 61,000 chemicals to provide advice on incidents ranging from small spills of hazardous material to life saving snatch rescue operations.
This course provides guidance on the use of Chemdata and shows you how to search, customise and effectively use the software. Each topic will be followed by a short quiz to help make sure you've gained everything you can from the lesson.
