Chemicals (Hazards), Invocation, First Response, Implementing ICE, Risk Assessment, PPE & Spill Kits, Practical Exercise

Course Description

Conceived through our work in chemical labs and hospitals this course is designed for technicians and chemists alike and therefore assumes a good working knowledge of chemicals and their hazardous properties. The main emphasis is therefore on good practice, preparation and forward planning. During the course delegates will be encouraged to develop a practical first response to identified spill incidents, consider the development of a risk reduction culture and construct a flow charted response plan for the laboratory. This will also cover the basics of using their existing spill response inventory and be given advice, if required, on any gaps that exist. As a part of the section on PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) delegates will be expected to demonstrate competence in its deployment and use. Course notes/workbooks are provided. For certification there is a short 20 question multiple choice test. All delegates receive the Sapira Spill Responder Guide free as a part of the course.
