    At NCEC we recognise the importance of chemical safety training. A wide range of regulations govern the safe storage, use and transport of chemicals; and in almost all of them, training is a stipulated requirement. As the UK’s National Chemical Emergency Centre, we enjoy a strong track record in providing training in chemical incident response, chemical safety and in the compliance of legislation and beyond.

    Chemical Spill Response

    When a chemical is spilled, someone has to clear it up. This might be the person who spilt it or, possibly, a trained response team. Whoever it is, they should know about the hazards and risks posed by the substances involved, have access to the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and follow some kind of plan.

  • First Aid for Chemical Exposures

    First Aid for Chemical Exposures

    When working with chemicals, there is always the potential for someone to be exposed to the substance they are working with. Whether by accident or as part of normal routine, chemical exposure may not only cause serious harm to human health, but can also result in lost time, legal action, and health and safety management targets being missed.
