Strategies used within this environment are slightly different from that of marine spills. This course contains a practical damming exercise which allows you a good understanding of the strategy and tactics to use when spills occur within a flowing, shallow and narrow body of water, like a stream. Another practical exercise on this course is the river booming exercise to demonstrate how to respond if oil reaches a larger body of water, like a river with the additional difficulties that this response embraces.
This course is perfect for those required to plan for and/or respond to an inland oil spill incident. It is also ideal for those wishing to gain a better understanding and insight into inland oil spill response.
Strategies adopted during an inland oil spill response vary greatly dependant on the environment and source of the spill. This course looks at the essentials of inland spill response including the different response techniques utilised within varying environments and the potential impacts.
This course will give you the knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
"Facilitators had very good knowledge of subject matter. We had a good experience on handling a damming operation and facilitators shared their experiences and provided useful tips and suggestions during the exercise."
"Excellent practical experience in booming and skimming. Well done. Great team spirit"
