Hazardous materials pose a danger to the environment. Federal regulations require immediate reporting to specific agencies (federal and local) in the event of a release to the environment.
We will cover the diferrent requirements, how to determine if you are required to report a release, and strategies to implement proactive actions to minimize the likelihood of a release, and you internal response time to avoid or minimize any potential enforcement actions.
Why you should Attend: The inspection requirements of the SPCC rule are designed to detect oil leaks, spills, or other potential integrity or structural issues before they can result in a discharge of oil to navigable waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines.
Regularly scheduled inspections, evaluations, and testing of bulk oil storage containers by qualified personnel are critical parts of discharge prevention. A container integrity inspection and/or testing program may involve one or more of the following: an external visual inspection of containers, foundations, and supports; non-destructive testing (examination) to evaluate integrity of certain containers; and additional evaluations, as needed, to assess the containers fitness for continued service.
