Effective SPCC Plans: Preventing Oil Spills Through Planning, Inspections, Security and Response Time

Live Webinar: Wednesday, December 12, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn best practices for preventing oil spills through developing effective SPCC plans, inspections, security, and response time.



When most people think of oil spills, images of tragic and large-scale off-shore disasters often come to mind. But the reality is that most oil releases are less than 10 gallons, with many from fixed facilities. Even if a spill is relatively small, the effect on a company’s bottom line can be disastrous as the fines for noncompliance quickly pile up - and there is the added risk of defending against increasingly prevalent citizen suits.

These environmental and financial crises can be avoided, however, if companies subject to the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulations create and maintain robust plans that outline the procedures they’ll use to prevent oil spills from happening. They also need to continuously look for opportunities to improve their plans. It is too easy to put an SPCC plan on a shelf and not think about it for five years – which could lead to major issues when a spill occurs. 

Join us on December 12 when New Pig EHS Professional and Technical Writer Karen Hamel will discuss best practices for preventing oil spills through developing effective SPCC plans, inspections, security, and response time.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Identify SPCC plan elements that may need a second look
  • Implement simple ways to make routine SPCC inspections work harder
  • Recognize the advantages of passive systems
  • Improve your site security measures
  • Realize why spill response isn’t just for oil handlers
