    Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures - RILS

    Course Summary

    • Chemicals are inherently hazardous but are even more dangerous if they are spilled on the ground. Chemicals can react with air, the ground itself, or create a byproduct that can cause toxic effects to the ground if left alone. This course helps to assess how to prevent these spills by understanding how they occur and the different techniques that are performed to protect workers from these spills. The workers will also be assessed on the different types of personal protective equipment which will be used to effectively remove spills and how to notify the supervisor of the spill and leave the area safely.
    Course Objective: 
    Delegates will be able to manage the main aspects of:
    • The EPA’s (Environmental Prevention Agency) Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure rule
    • The IMO´s ( International Maritime Organization) Strategic Plan, vision, mission, performance indicators, list of outputs.
    • The Human Factor: Emergency Response Teams.
