    We are delighted to be holding a 1-day seminar on Emergency Response To Chemical Incidents with key speakers presenting a variety of topics.

    The seminar will review and present information from some of the main organisations responsible for emergency response to chemical incidents. We will hear case studies on past incidents, learn more about equipment to protect those dealing with incidents and discover how to proactively prepare in order to prevent and minimise the consequences.

    We are delighted to have the following speakers confirmed:

    • Introduction And Background To Emergency Response, Andy Holton
      A guided tour through the history of emergency response

    • Chemical Response – An In-Depth Case Study, OHES
      Large chlorine gas reaction which lead to extensive damage to an industrial premise and surrounding environmental damage. Casual factors, practical difficulties effecting the response, environmental testing (on and off site), issues with loss adjustors. Transport of waste.

    • Emergency Response Case Studies, Ambipar Response
      Tanker roll-over, a railway incident, packaging issues with nitro-cellulose and bin-packaging of polystyrene beads.

    • ADR PPE – Are You Providing Adequate Protection, Hazchem Safety
