Spillage is going to happen onsite no matter how careful the employees are. It is a normal part of daily routines at work, but that doesn’t mean that you have to waste time, all the liquid, or worry about damaging property or injuring employees.
Spill response training is there to ensure that you and your staff know what to do when these situations happen. While you will need to purchase the appropriate kit to help clean up the mess, you also need to know how to use the kit and the items inside. Without such, you run the risk of hurting others or damaging property because you’re slow to react when a crisis occurs.
Spill response training shouldn’t be just for managers and supervisors. Everyone who works on the floor should be trained on how to use the kit. You never know when something will go wrong and you may not have time to get a manager’s approval. Not knowing what to do means you could cause a severe pollution incident or cause downtime to the company. Therefore, it makes sense that you ensure that each employee knows what to do. You may also find that drills with mock spills can help everyone improve.
At EcoSpill, you get high-quality products that are designed to be compliant with all rules and regulations. However, they also realise that having the products onsite doesn’t mean anything if you don’t know how to use them correctly. They offer some of the best education options, including introductory all the way through Certificate IV options. Everyone can learn what to do, and some can learn a little more to ensure that there is a balanced plan in play when spills happen. Spill response training will help you learn more about the theory and practice of prevention, clean-up, and containment.
