Aboveground Storage Tanks: A Fool-Proof Plan for Selection, Inspection, Spill Prevention, and Containment - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to manage your aboveground storage tanks in a safe and compliant manner.

Aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) can be one of the best ways to store liquids, such as chemicals, oil, or water. When properly managed in compliance with EPA regulations (40 CFR 112) and applicable state and local regulations, ASTs can operate with little risk to your employees and the environment. But when something goes wrong, owners and operators could be on the hook for costly penalties resulting from environmental spills, leaks, or other potential disasters.

Consequently, AST owners and operators need to ensure that they’re following tank-management best practices. For instance, it’s essential select the correct type of tank for the liquid it will store. It is also important to ensure your tank has been properly installed based on manufacturer recommendations. And you need to be prepared with comprehensive and compliant plans for containment, spill prevention, overfill prevention, periodic tank inspection and testing, piping maintenance, and release response.

Use this in-depth on-demand webinar that will teach you how to manage your ASTs—from selection, inspection, and maintenance to spill release prevention and containment—in a safe and compliant manner.

You’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important to get a handle on the federal, state, and local rules that may apply to your organization’s ASTs
  • How to assess existing ASTs to determine if there are potential concerns that need to be addressed
  • The “front end” process to follow to ensure that you select the proper tank for the material to be stored in it
  • The key to determining AST tank/tank-content compatibility
  • How to develop and implement effective tank overfill protection and material transfer processes
  • What needs to be done to ensure AST integrity
  • When containment systems fail and how to conduct proper maintenance
  • AST inspection process essentials for meeting compliance requirements and how to address issues in a timely and effective manner
  • How to tell if your AST maintenance program is equipped to address potential concerns before they become significant problems
  • What to include in your AST spill contingency plan
  • Training tips to ensure that employees who work with your ASTs aren’t compromising safety or environmental protection protocols
