Spill Prevention and Control Training
This Spill Prevention and Control Training course looks at raising awareness on how to prevent or handle spills. Preventing spills, especially in the manufacturing industry, is not always possible. However, spillages and leaks must be dealt with promptly as soon as they occur. When not dealt with quickly, spillages can be serious and may cause serious accidents, especially if it is a dangerous substance that has been spilt.
Storage tanks must have a system for containing any leaks that may happen, and it is advised for all areas to have a readily available “spill kit” and trained staff to deal with such events.
This course looks at how to handle storage in a safe manner, as well as the repercussions that dealing with hazardous chemicals may have.
