Fecc webinar: “Emergency Response – Implications for Distributors” co-hosted by NCEC


Fecc webinar: "Emergency Response – Implications for Distributors" co-hosted by NCEC (The National Chemical Emergency Centre), and with Azelis. 

Chemical distributors often have very different approaches to chemical emergency response provision. In this webinar we will explore what best practice for level 1 (telephone) emergency response looks like, referring to the Cefic best practice guidelines and the Responsible Care guiding principles. Case studies will bring the challenges to the fore and we will provide clear next step actions for you to take immediately, enabling you to assess your risk and make changes if required.
