The primary objective is to provide first responders at a spillage incident with basic know-how and techniques to safely use absorbent products to recover the spilt substance and limit any escape into the environment.

  • Explanation & definition of types of sorbent materials deployed on site ( e.g. Organic, non-organic, synthetic )
  • Explanation & definition of types of Sorbent products deployed on site ( e.g. Loose materials, pads, cushions, socks, booms )
  • Explanation of the features, properties  uses of the different types of Sorbents & Sorbent products deployed on site

This practical element should be an interactive exercise, ‘hands-on’ for delegates and must adequately demonstrate the safe use of typical sorbent products deployed on site. Specifically, the demonstration should show effective prevention of liquid entry into drain inlets, controls of other liquid escape routes and contamination of liquid spread.
