Spill Control and Spill Kit Training

Spills in your workplace must be cleaned up safely. Spill kit training, so you can control and clean up a spill, is important knowledge for warehouse staff, drivers, loaders, managers and other people who work with or store chemicals.

This course fits perfectly with our Dangerous Goods Handler course to give you a good base knowledge of chemical hazard management in the workplace and how to deal with small and medium-sized spills.

The training courses covers:

  • the use of safety data sheets and product safety cards to define your spill response
  • signage and labels used for hazardous goods
  • how to assess a spill and set up spill zones
  • spill action plans
  • what items are in a spill kit
  • how to clean up a spill
  • how to dispose of spilled materials and who to report it to
  • how to manage risks. 

Companies: simply purchase as many course licences as you need for your team members and you can assign the courses and view their progress

Individuals: simply purchase one course licence for yourself.

You can do the course in your own time when it's convenient for you - you have access to the course materials for 6 months. Watch the videos then answer the questions.
