Chlorination specialist Hydramet has added a new sodium hypochlorite training programme to the company’s portfolio of water industry training courses.
The new water industry training programme is in response to demand from various water utilities and local councils to help their personnel develop an understanding of sodium hypochlorite, specifically its uses, properties, handling and reactions.
Hydramet has delivered training programmes for hundreds of personnel from water utilities and specialist disinfection companies including aquatics, food processing and mining.
For the storage and handling of corrosive substances, AS3780:2008 specifies that all personnel handling the corrosive substance shall be made fully conversant with the means of identifying the corrosive substance and its properties by reference to the relevant material safety data sheet. Personnel should also be conversant with the applicable safety regulations and safe handling procedures.
Hydramet’s new water industry training course covers all these elements in addition to the history, chemistry, storage, materials, equipment and transport of sodium hypochlorite.
Personal protective equipment, signage and emergency response including basic first aid guidelines are also included in the one-day programme.
Hydramet's presenters for the programme have several years of experience in handling sodium hypochlorite and can ensure that the training is directly relevant to all participants.
Each training programme has a maximum number of twelve delegates to enhance the learning experience.
The sodium hypochlorite course can be conducted onsite at a client’s premises. Alternatively, Hydramet holds regular public courses at training facilities in Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.
The first scheduled sodium hypochlorite training course is to be held in Adelaide to coincide with Ozwater on Thursday 12th May 2011.
Hydramet is an Australian company with over 20 years of experience specialising in equipment and systems for chlorination, water treatment and chemical metering.
