About the Course


The Spill Kit Training (chemicals & oils) course is designed to prepare learners to deal with unexpected spills, which may cause damage to people and the environment if left unchecked.

The course begins with an overview of what the spill kit contains—whether it is an all-purpose kit or specifically designed for fuel or chemical spills—and how to recognise and use each item. A spill kit will usually consist of some form of personal protective equipment (PPE) and materials to stop leaks, to dispose of waste, and to seal drains.

In the second section, the course demonstrates a step-by-step procedure for managing and cleaning spills.

Available in 31 languages, the course takes around 20 minutes to complete.
