Nigel is a consultant at NCEC and was an emergency responder for three and a half years answering calls requiring chemical advice 24/7. He has extensive chemical knowledge from a decade in the pharmaceutical industry with several patents and one drug candidate getting to clinical trials. He has brought that expertise to assist his response to the emergency response role and his laboratory experience gave him a good grounding in the use of chemicals at various scales from milligrams to multi kilograms. As the training product manager he provides his skills to training courses covering COSHH, spill response and specialist first aid to several clients on behalf of NCEC. He also edits the NCEC emergency services newsletter, The Spill, writing several articles on topics such as fentanyl and lithium batteries.
