NCEC’s Virtual Hazmat 2021 conference has earned the justifiable reputation of being the ‘must-attend’ annual event for those who are involved in hazmat response, incident management or crisis management. As well as providing the opportunity for delegates to learn about the latest developments in the hazmat field, it is an ideal networking forum for them to share experiences with like-minded professionals.
Virtual Hazmat 2021 is a free virtual alternative to our annual conference and is supported by JOIFF.
The event will comprise of two, 2-hour sessions on consecutive days and will draw on the knowledge and experience of NCEC’s experts – with a focus on informative, practical and actionable advice on hazmat incidents. Additionally, one lucky team/participant on each day will win a free virtual hazmat training session with our Hazmat Academy team.
The sessions are at different times of the day so that at least one will be at a convenient time for delegates wherever they are in the world. We welcome you to attend either one or both sessions depending on your availability.
The event is completely free to attend. Save your place at the event here.
Both sessions will include:
Discussion involving a practical hazmat-related scenario
Both sessions will include a scenario that focuses on a chemical spill at a commercial site. However, factors such as scale, response system and the type of chemical involved will vary. The scenario will explore incident scene management and how to implement a proportionate response to an incident involving hazardous materials. They will also include:
How to prepare for and prevent a spill occurring.
What training response teams should undertake so they are fully prepared when such an incident happens.
How a proportionate response can help minimise the impact of a chemical spill.
In addition, our experts will discuss the steps that should be taken after an incident has been resolved to minimise the chances of something similar happening.
Take part in our quiz and you could win a free training session with us.
On each of the two days of Hazmat 2021, our experts will run an interactive quiz and one lucky participant/team on each day will win a free, virtual, hazmat training session with our Hazmat Academy team*. The quiz will test and challenge your knowledge of hazmat-related subjects – such as hazmat response, hazmat history, information gathering, incident scene management, and chemical and physical properties of substances. Delegates can enter as individuals or as part of a team. All we ask is that you bring your ‘A game’.
