1. Assessing the material hazards are within your training and service of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
2. Identifying the specific materials and analysing the Material Safety Data Sheet.
3. Determine an adequate response based on material risk, volume, and scenario challenges. 
1. Collect apparatus and donning of Personal Protective Equipment for controlling / containing the spill
2. Communicate with supervisor / management / ER contractor as directed by internal policy
3. Control pedestrian and vehicular traffic access at all sides to affected area.
III.  Reduce - Eliminate

Preplanning for a scenario provides the necessary insight to respond with confidence.  The proper integration of a spill prevention control and countermeasures (SPCC) plan will make the difference between lost product or adding a loss time injury.  When management provides clear expectations responders will operate in a predictable way.  Hespro can help!  From developing customized protocols and an SPCC to delivering the training, we can do it all.

Spill Response Training Operations

Sectors or spheres of activity are used to coordinate the "team"  We invoke the sector concept into the training to quickly develop a "team" response.  Our techniques invoke these spheres of activities to coalesce and produce a team response to a spill.

Overview to Workplace Basic Spill Response Training

We take a simplified approach to organizing a response to a chemical spill. The following stages are used to coordinate a team of initial responders in the workplace setting.

I. Positive Identification and Risk Assessment

II.  Direction from within the Team

Program Delivery:

Hespro has the ability to adapt this program to the needs of the workplace, and, just as important, the level of understanding of the participants.  Our interactive approach using humour keeps the training lively and interesting.  We also utilize analysis, knowledge consolidation and evaluation in a user-friendly presentation format.  Our extensive hands-on experience and expert knowledge permeates the learning group and instills confidence in dealing with spill hazards.  Programs have been adapted to meet the needs of individuals in their respective roles.  Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences, and the group is briefed on the necessity of maintaining confidentiality.

1. Safety and risk reduction
2. Environmental legislation and reporting requirments
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
