NCEC, part of Ricardo, are running a series of webinars to offer a structured approach to safely resolving hazmat incidents which are low in frequency but high in risk.
When responding to such incidents, responders often get limited time to make life or death decisions. Through our liaison with first responders, we know that there can be a lack of a structured logical approach to implement at such incidents, which combined with limited training and exercising opportunities mean that responders can struggle to deal with hazmat incidents, especially when compared to other more common incident types. The subject matter experts at the Hazmat Academy, most of them ex-first responders themselves, have developed a structured ‘eight-phase approach to incident scene management’.
The series of webinars are free and available on-demand or live.
