Hazardous Chemical & Spillage Control

Hazardous chemical and spill control provides training in the safe handling of hazardous chemicals and the environmental and health and safety issues arising from the handling, storage and transportation of hazardous chemicals.
Training will assist companies to prepare for a hazardous spill and will focus on three aspects:

  1. Spill preparation
  2. Spill response
  3. Spill clean-up

HAZOP (Hazard and Operability Study) and HAZAN (Hazard Analysis) is a technique used by industry to test the integrity of a design in respect to safety and operability of process operations. The course provides training in the preparation for and undertaking of HAZOP studies and HAZAN studies. Training ensures that studies can be planned and undertaken effectively and efficiently. In addition learning how to recognise the warning signs of a deficient study early enough to make changes.

Waste Management / Minimisation

Waste Management/Minimisation introductory course provides training for all organisations that wish to understand and develop skills in waste management and minimisation. The true cost of waste to a business is typically 4-5% of the turnover. Environmental legislation has increased the need for organisations to improve their environmental performance. Undertaking a structured waste minimisation programme will save money, improve the environment, the organisation's profile and competitiveness.

Potable Water Treatment Technologies

An introductory course on water treatment process and technology will cover water sources and drinking water characteristics, pre-treatment - screening, storage and aeration, primary treatment - coagulation, flocculation and sedimentation and secondary treatment - filtration and disinfection. A Water treatment system is designed to produce water that meets set standards for 48 microbiological, chemical and indicator parameters as set out in the European Communities (Drinking Water) (No. 2) Regulations 2007. Potable water treatment must produce water that is considered "wholesome and clean" which is defined as "water which is free from any microorganisms, parasites and from any substance which in numbers or concentration constitute a potential danger to human health and must meet quality standards.
