Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC)

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) rule defines the types of facilities that must have and comply with a SPCC plan. The video training Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC): Oil & Water Do Not Mix provides information on who must be trained at impacted facilities, proper oil storage, control practices and spill response in addition to other useful information.

Like many other industries electric utilities rely heavily on oil in its various forms. This places electric utilities in a class of facilities which require a SPCC plan. When it comes to oil spills and leaks in these unique environments employees must be trained in prevention, awareness and response. Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) for Electric Utilities offers instruction for electrical utility employees.

Although great measures are taken to prevent spills and leaks of oil and other hazardous materials, spills do occur. When it happens you must be able to promptly assess the situation to determine the best plan of action. The only way to be prepared to respond quickly and effectively is to be trained before you are faced with any spills or leaks.  Spills: Non-Emergency Hazmat Spill Response offers guidance on how to evaluate leaks and spills to determine the best course of action.
