Every industrial workshop in Australia that stores and makes use of fuels, oils, non-aggressive liquids and chemicals is required to have a spill kit to prevent pollution caused by a leak or spill of any kind. What one suits your workplace?
The ubiquitous nature, and consistent use, of a fuelling station is one of the reasons that these areas tend to contribute a high percentage of the total spillage of hydrocarbons in Australia. It only takes a second of carelessness for fuel to spill while filling a petrol, propane, or diesel tank. This makes the placement of your spill kit vital, along with the proper training for users and technicians.
Spill kits are a vital aspect of any industrial workplace, but the deployment of your spill kit has to be done right for it to operate as designed. There is often a level of panic when a spill has occurred, and internalising the method of deployment of your spill kit can ensure that it is done properly.
At EcoSpill, we want to ensure that we train our clients on how best to employ their spill kit. As such, we provide expert spill kit training to meet your environmental obligations. Ecospill is leading the way in industrial spill kit training, offering courses from introductory level through to Certificate IV proficiency.
Our courses will help you become well-acquainted with your spill kit. The regulatory landscape here in Australia punishes polluters with severe fines, and spill kit training can be important to safeguard your firms’ bottom line.

- Spill Response: Fundamentals
- Spill Response: In-depth
