Spill Response Training
Identification and safe response to minor oil and chemical spills within the workshop, factory, plant or external work area using correct procedures, equipment and conventions is essential for both small and large businesses alike.
As specialists in our field, we offer customers and users of our products four different spill training options.
Our first option is a cleverly designed DVD which allows you, the customer, to control and conduct your own spill training. Our ‘Introduction to Spill Kits’ DVD was developed to give the viewer a solid understanding of the different absorbents available on the market, what spills they each absorb, and how to use the different tools within a spill kit. The important issue of controlling the spill situation before the clean up action begins is addressed early in the DVD and the course also covers disposal, reporting the incident and how to restock spill kits.
Our second option is a toolbox-type training session conducted by one of our experienced team members. Your personnel will be introduced to the equipment purchased by your company, in most cases, spill kits. Our team member will explain the purpose of and how to use the tools contained within the spill kit. Factors such as procedures and reordering can be customised for your site. Our toolbox spill response training typically takes between 20 minutes to one hour.
The third option is a basic introduction to oil and chemical spills, conducted by one of our training officers. This spill training session examines the different types of spills and helps to classify whether they are hazardous. The session then delivers responders with an action plan on how to handle the spill scenario. As with smaller training courses outlined above, the purpose of and how to use the tools contained within the spill kit are covered. The important issues of disposal and reporting are also examined.
The fourth option, our premier spill response training course, ‘The Control, Containment and Clean Up of Oil Spills on Land and Coastal Waters’ is conducted by one of our senior trainers. This course embodies a broad range of principles involved in dealing with oil spills on land and inland waters (ports, marinas, lakes, ponds, rivers, shorelines), and outlines the preparatory actions required by those involved in the daily storage, handling and distribution of oil and fuel products.
This spill training course has been used for over 20 years as the primary induction and safety course for mining and oil and gas companies around Australia. It has been designed to arm responders with the skills to safely handle most hydrocarbon spills (oil and fuel) in most situations that they may be faced with. The course is delivered via a PowerPoint presentation which includes animation and video demonstrations. The session also includes hands-on clean ups to reinforce lessons learned. Each participant receives a detailed, full colour textbook which elaborates further on each topic covered, and contains further reading on the larger equipment also used for oil spills on water.
