BENEFITS OF THIS Spill Response Awareness course:

When working with hazardous substances, it is your responsibility to know how to respond to an emergency spill. As mentioned in COMAH, workers should have an emergency plan ready on-site for such instances.

This course will teach you how to use a spill kit; by having this skill, you can help your organisation to work in line with legislation whilst protecting people and the surrounding environment. There could also be legal and financial repercussions from mishandling a spill.

On completion of the training, we will issue you with a certificate. Your certificate will arrive around 6-8 weeks after completion and will be valid for three years. To renew the certification, you must reattend the course.
