Together with Compass Environmental, Darcy Spillcare are proud to announce the launch of a new spill training venture - Responder.
Responder is a collaboration between two of the UK’s leading spill experts:
As the UK’s leading manufacturer of pollution prevention equipment, Darcy Spillcare’s products have been trusted by responders and have been the professionals choice to effectively deal with spillage incidents for over 50 years.
Compass Environmental Consultancy are involved in the management of spillages on a daily basis and provide spill training to professional response companies.
Together under the Responder brand, Darcy and Compass have partnered to deliver a compelling training initiative that is designed for all levels of spill responder.
Spill First Responder and the subsequent Train the Trainer course are an ideal solution for companies who wish to develop their in-house spill response capabilities. These half-day courses, which can be delivered at the customers premises, investigate spillages on hardstandings, within bunds and drainage systems.
For companies offering a professional spill response service, the Advanced Spill Responder course provides a great balance in theory and practical based learning. After a morning classroom session investigating real-life and recent spillage scenarios, delegates put their learning into practice with two hands-on exercises – a spillage on hardstanding and a spillage in freshwater. This course is run on select dates throughout the year at the Fire Service College, Moreton-in-Marsh.
Tactical Spill Responder sits as the most technical course in the Responder spill training programme. Aimed at team leaders and those dealing with spills on a daily basis, this course pits delegates against four practical scenarios of differing nature and material spilt. Each scenario is played out in its entirety, from initial instruction all the way through to the incident debrief – testing and challenging delegates on their actions every step of the way! By the end of this course, delegates will have more of an understanding of their own spill capabilities and developed the mindset of a Tactical Spill Responder. This course is run at a specialist facility in Cheltenham and is delivered on select dates throughout the year.
The bringing together of expertise in product and spill clean up through the experience of Darcy Spillcare and Compass Environmental is very exciting and will bring real benefit to our customers ensuring safe and efficient spill clean up and pollution prevention.
I am delighted to be able to expand the course offerings with 2 new courses through this partnership, enabling individuals and companies to expand on there capabilities and reduce risks associated with handling all liquids.
