Spill Response 150 – Industrial Spills
Objective: The 7-hour seminar will assist and help owners and operators of industrial facilities facilitate Emergency Response Plans for timely and effective response to emergencies, industrial spills, involving the release of hazardous chemicals or dangerous goods to the environment.
Competency in responding to emergency incidents requires a complete understanding of the roles and duties of each person responsible for the team. Comprehensive training in the use of emergency response equipment and personnel protection devices and tactics is necessary to ensure the best response capability. Provision for training is an integral part of a complete contingency planning and implementation program. Initial training must be followed by periodic updates to maintain familiarity with all aspects of the plan.
Your Response Plan should provide details of training programs for the company personnel and mutual aid agencies involved in responding to an emergency. The amount, type and frequency of training for each member of the team should be clearly spelled out.
Training should be provided at least annually and in the following situations:
- for new employees during their orientation period
- for existing employees when there is a change in their duties
- when new equipment or materials are introduced
- when emergency procedures are revised
- when a drill indicates the need for improvement
It is wise to extend training as far as possible, even beyond the plant gates. The plan should provide for familiarizing local agencies such as fire, police and ambulance staff with the potential hazards of the operation.
