One of the causes of oil spills is natural disasters. For instance, a raging storm may sink an oil tanker, spill its content, and cause pollution. Furthermore, an oil seep is a natural oil spillage and an unwanted environmental pollution agent. Oil seeps are not forceful but gentle yet, create so many problems for the environment.

Develop your oil spill response skills and knowledge with our extensive range of interactive courses available online, at our venues or at your faculties delivered by our experts. This ever-popular course provides the fundamental knowledge required for all Supervisors and On-Scene Commanders to conduct a successful response.



The main emphasis of this course is pre planning, preparation and due diligence. Delegates will understand the response team’s role within the incident plans, the development of a risk reduction culture and how flow charted response plans can be integrated within the correct command structure. Delegates will also cover the basics of using their existing oil spill response inventory and be given advice, if required, on any gaps that exist.
