Course Details

Background

This course trains personnel to act as emergency responders for leaks or spills of chemicals and in particular ammonia. While it is specifically aimed at ammonia users the knowledge gained also relates to other chemicals. A full grounding in relevant chemical (ammonia) and spill response knowledge is provided followed by practical drills. Case studies are reviewed and scenarios are planned to simulate conditions indicating that a spill or leak has occurred. Delegates assess spill scenarios in teams, determine and prepare what emergency equipment they will need to control the leak before approaching the spill and simulating the repair in full PPE. Responses are then critically evaluated for weaknesses or improvements that should be made in the future scenarios.
