Spill Training

The dangers associated with spilling Flammable Materials are far greater than those associated with spilling general non-flammable materials, simply because of the increased release of flammable gases from the exposed surface area of the chemical.

Imagine a 5 litre petrol can with a 40mm diameter fill cap, the amount of flammable gas released that you can smell through this relatively small opening is quite low, now imagine this 5 litres poured onto the floor, the smell is now considerably higher and as the flammable liquid travels, more and more flammable gas is released into the atmosphere.

Being able to understand factors such as this are important when working outside of Zoned areas. Isolating power to electrical equipment to remove potential sources of ignition can sometimes itself generate a spark and thus ignite gases.

Spill absorption must be quick - at the same time dangers of asphyxiation - continued gas release - ventilation - ignition sources - evacuation and many other things must be considered.

DSC Ltd, will help you understand these problems and train your personnel to both recognise and deal with them safely.
