HNS/Hazmat Training

Braemar Howells is recognised as a leading provider of Hazmat and HNS response services; this is shown throughout our Hazmat/HNS training courses with references to past operations. Our accredited Hazmat/HNS training courses combine both theoretical and practical elements of hazmat/HNS response, ensuring on completion the delegates are knowledgeable and understanding of hazmat/HNS response.

Our hazmat/HNS spill response training can be undertaken at either a Braemar Howells training facility or at any clients specified location.

Courses follow a full assessment of each client’s objectives, risk evaluations and crisis management plans then structured to meet their specific requirements. Trainees familiarise themselves with the tools and techniques of hazmat/HNS response and learn from our knowledgeable team, who bring a unique insight into their experiences of live incidents both large and small.
