All LCM staff know it is the responsibility of companies and individuals alike to protect both their working and the wider environment. But it's also sound business sense when the costs of NOT complying can be enormous. The Health & Safety Executive can now charge £124 per hour for attending your business! Spills cost you dear - in financial terms and corporate reputation. For spill response to be effective, key personnel need training.

The team at The LCM Training recognise the need for the correct training to be presented at the right level and in the most effective manner. From this, we have come up with three different levels of spill response training – and any one can be used as a foundation to meet your own site specific requirements.

BASIC LEVEL SPILL RESPONSE

LCM Training offer an introduction to spill control that is essential for any facility that is looking to implement an EMS. Carried out on-or off-site, the course includes a brief overview of ISO14001.

  • Product identification - what to use, when and where to use it
  • What is a spill response kit - contents, packaging sequence, how to use it and stock checking
  • Disposal of contaminated absorbents
  • Practical demonstration
  • Open forum - questions and answers
  • 2 hours total time, available on- or off-site (venues around the UK) 

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

An in-depth LCM Training course including awareness of relevant legislation, and how on-site contingency planning is essential to support an application for ISO14001 or a similar Environmental Management System (EMS). Recommended for both on-site specific training and off-site presentation to staff and spil control teams at Regional or Head Office level. Also suitable for Refresher Training to update on techniques, products and legislative changes and requirements.

  • Introduction to current legislation and the role of monitoring bodies
  • How to structure and implement a contingency plan
  • Product identification - what to use, when and where to use it
  • What is a spill response kit - contents, packaging sequence, how to use it and stock checking
  • Segregation and subsequent disposal of used absorbents
  • Practical demonstration

  • Optional written test

ADVANCED LEVEL

This highest level of spill response training from LCM Training is structured for facilities where first responders are required to have hands-on experience or for demonstration of compliance with ISO14001. Practical on-site risk assessment procedures are also covered. Site-specific, this makes the course sufficiently comprehensive for adaptation to `train-the-trainer` packages. Please contact us for details.
