VRSA member employees work with chemical hazards and toxic substances every day, with the potential to cause significant injuries or even death if mishandled.
Are your employees prepared for a catastrophic chemical release or spill?
Recently, VRSA staff worked with AlexRenew, a water resource recovery utility, to provide Emergency Spill Response Training. The training is designed to inform staff of their entity policies as well as provide first-hand experience on how to actively address both serious and catastrophic spills, who to contact, how to address injuries, and how to conduct a proper spill clean-up.
“We wanted to make sure our employees are prepared in the case of having some kind of hazardous chemical spill,” said AlexRenew Security Coordinator Alex Rigsby. “We do work with a lot of hazardous chemicals on this site and we realize that if we do have something go wrong – that employees know how to respond to that safely to protect themselves, coworkers, vendors, neighborhoods, and the environment.”
