Topic outline

  • Delivery model and flexibility

    This 1-day course teaches chemical hazard awareness coupled with the theory of spill response. There is also the option to add a practical exercise to test a learner’s ability to deal with an incident in the workplace.

    Optional practical sessions can be added after the classroom work, but it should be noted that the theory modules will be abridged to allow time for this to take place. Our trainers will work with organisations to consider the type of spill scenario they wish to cover, then provide a guided practical session for teams to ‘have a go’ in a realistic, yet safe, environment.

    The benefits of including a practical session include:

    •   Providing the opportunity to practise procedures in a learner’s own workplace.
    •   Gaining hands-on experience of using protective clothing and spill kits.
    •   Demonstrating how quickly incidents can escalate.
    •   Providing a realistic understanding of the problems that face response teams.

    The structure of the course means we are able to customise the content to include the chemicals found at an organisation’s premises and to incorporate its spill procedure.

    The course is assessed through a variety of activities throughout the session. Each learner will be informally assessed and will receive feedback based on their performance.
