Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures

Oil spills endanger public health, impact drinking water, devastate natural resources, and disrupt the economy. In the United States we use vast quantities of oils to heat our homes, provide fuel for automobiles, and operate various pieces of equipment. During storage, transport, or as the result of energy exploration and production activities, oil and other oil-based products are sometimes spilled onto land or into waterways.

When this occurs, human health and environmental quality are put at risk. Every effort must be made to prevent oil spills and to clean them up promptly once they occur. The costs associated with spill prevention are often much less than the costs associated with spill clean up, fines, and other civil liabilities. 

To help prevent oil spills into land or waterways, the environmental protection agency, or EPA, requires facilities to prepare spill prevention, control, and countermeasures plans, or SPCC.

Training Topics:

  • Know what a SPCC plan is
  • Understand why spill plans are required
  • Know what facilities must do to comply with SPCC rules
  • Be able to identify the elements of a spill plan
  • Understand your responsibilities as an employee at a SPCC facility
  • And know what to do in the event of a spill

This training program focuses on the needs of the “end user”, and upon successful completion, will provide an updated operator's certificate and wallet card.
