Responding to Hazardous Spills at Your Facility: Do you have an Effective Plan? - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Spills interrupt your day. This webinar will help you identify the areas at your facility where spills happen. You can use this information to create a plan that keeps these spills in check and prepares your workplace to respond effectively when things get out of hand. You will also be able to identify training needs for employees who respond to spills and have a framework for conducting drills to ensure that plans will work in emergencies.

Facilities that use, store, or transport hazardous materials, chemicals, and/or hazardous waste always have the potential for spills. Most are usually small and can be handled by personnel in the area, but some can be catastrophic for the facility and the environment. Regulations require facilities to have a plan to be prepared to handle spill emergencies.

Plans need to identify the areas where spills could happen and outline the policies, procedures and tools that will be used to prevent those spills. When spills cannot be prevented, plans also need to address how those spills will be cleaned up, and by whom.

Effective plans will also address employee training, drills, exercises, and overall safety. Having an effective plan helps to ensure employee safety, minimize downtime, and limit the financial and environmental impact on your facility while reducing the potential for costly fines.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify areas of your facility where spills could potentially occur
  • Differentiate incidental and emergency spills for your facility
  • Determine the types of equipment, personnel and training needed for spill response
  • Develop and implement spill response procedures
  • Recognize when spills need to be reported, and to whom
  • Uncover common violations that can lead to costly fines
