Philosophy behind the training program
As liquid waste places an especially high burden on the environment, emergency preparedness and response training is essential. An emergency simulation drill based on standard operational procedures is conducted once a year by all staff who work in the relevant area of the facility.
Nature of the training
Emergency response scenario: leakage of waste liquid due to breakage of container during transport.
