On day three of the 24 Hour Process Safety/Risk Management Training, attendees put into practice all the training they received on days one and two. If medically able, all attendees will don and doff equipment or perform hands-on applications of equipment at the facility. Everyone will have the opportunity to wear the SCBA and the fully encapsulating training suit in practice. Additionally, the team will discuss and then practically implement the Incident Command System setup and integration during the mock training.

Additionally, scenario(s) are planned that will simulate conditions indicating that a spill or leak has occurred. The team(s) will form and lay out all their emergency equipment and will assess the situation and determine what emergency equipment they will need to stop the leak. The teams will then approach the spill and simulate the repair. Critiques will then be held to look for weaknesses or changes that should be made in the future scenarios.
