Spill Response Training

We take a simplified approach to managing spills. The following concepts are used to coordinate a team of initial responders that will participate in frequent practices together as a team response.

 Online Workplace Spill Response Training

I.Positive Identification and Risk Assessment - Pre-plan

Hespro’s general spill response training regiment is designed to develop a muscle memory response.  Fast, precise actions will minimize losses while prioritizing your personnel's safety.  Pre-planning as a team develops a path to the muscle memory.  A pre-plan includes:

  1. Assessing the material hazards are within the technical training and the service of  available personal protective equipment (PPE). 
  2. Identifying the products that will be in potential response and accordingly analyse the Material Safety Data Sheet.
  3. Determine an adequate response based on material risk, volume and scenario challenges.

II.Direction from within the Team

A coordinated team needs to accomplish simple tasks effectively.  
  1. Collect spill response apparatus that is adequate for the spilled material
  2. Donning of PPE that provides adequate protection.
  3. Control pedestrian and vehicular traffic access at all sides to affected area
  4. Communicate with management/ER contractor as directed by internal policy

III.Reduce - Eliminate

Preplanning for a scenario provides the necessary insight to respond with confidence.  The proper integration of a spill prevention, countermeasure and contingency (SPCC) plan will make the difference between lost product or adding a loss time injury.  Reduce (if possible eliminate) source with rudimentary techniques eg. close a valve or reposition breached container. 

IV.Spill Response Operations

Sectors or Spheres of activity are used to coordinate the “team”  Our techniques invoke these spheres of activities to coalesce and produce a team response to a spill.
Training includes:
  1. Safety and risk reduction
  2. Environmental legislation and reporting requirements
  3. Proper selection of Personal Protective Equipment
  4. Remediation - onsite or offsite
  5. Adverse Effects
  6. Preplanning
  7. Debriefing
  8. Emergency Response Team Building Exercises
