Spill Training

Few companies consider there to be a need for a dedicated spillage incident plan. Any incident that is serious enough to impact on your normal operations and/or the environment will have an impact on your ability to provide your normal business service. Spillage incidents are no exception and organisations that prepare and plan in advance, taking a more holistic approach to all incident management will gain benefit in improved resilience and create a more sustainable business as a result.

This half-day Spill Training course has been designed to train members of staff in their roles and responsibilities should an incident involving the spillage of hazardous substances occur.

Our Spill Training course can be delivered either within the work place, at our Tewkesbury Gloucestershire main office or at one of our training centres throughout the UK.
