Whether you are a professional oil spill responder, a Fire & Rescue Service training facility, an environmental regulator or one of our industrial clients, we have Spill Response and Environment Protection training courses for all levels aimed at making any response to an environmental incident safe, proportionate and effective.

We believe you learn best by doing, so all of our Spill Response courses have a significant hands-on element to them. Our courses are delivered by practitioners of pollution response and control whose experience and knowledge bring your training session to life.  Most of our Spill courses can be delivered at your site or otherwise at a specialist venue.

The sentencing guidelines for environmental offences recognise a number of factors when deciding on the level of fine imposed:

  •    Mitigating factors which have reduced the seriousness of the incident

  •    Evidence of steps taken to remedy the problem

  •    Co-operation and acceptance of responsibilities

Having a spill response plan, spill response equipment appropriate and proportionate to your business activities and trained staff can minimise the risk of prosecution, fines and clean-up costs. It can also help you attain ISO14001 accreditation.
