4 Necessary Elements of Spill Response Training

When you work with hazardous waste, spills can happen no matter how careful you are.

When you work with hazardous waste, spills can happen no matter how careful you are. For that reason, it is essential that you give your employees adequate spill response training. When you need to schedule a training session, call AEG Environmental. Here are four essential elements of spill response training!

Proper Education

In any situation that requires a prompt response, education matters. Your employees might be highly educated in how to identify and handle hazardous materials, but hazardous waste disposal is a highly dangerous circumstance that requires dedicated professionals to handle. When you need to train your employees in what to do, call AEG Environmental. Training your workers to understand the dangers of waste spills can help reduce the frequency of dangerous incidents.


Fire drills are a vital part of safety training: if a real fire breaks out everyone will know exactly what to do. The better they are at responding, the better equipped they will be to keep conditions safe until proper authorities arrive. It’s important to not only outline proper spill response procedures but make sure everyone will be prepared in the event that a spill occurs. This is another element of the training we can provide for you.

Safety Measures

Above all else, make everyone’s safety a priority. You can do this by ensuring that the proper safety measures, such as personal protective equipment, or PPE is kept nearby. It is essential to make sure that the PPE is kept in good condition. Chemical explosions are just as hazardous as chemical spills and both can release toxic fumes. Knowing what to do, such as when it is time to notify the authorities, is essential.

Notifying the Authorities

Hazardous material spills are emergency situations. This means that you’ll have to contact the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as authorities closer to where your business is located. This contact information is another essential part of your spill response training.
