An SPCC plan is a facility-specific, comprehensive plan outlining both the containment
and countermeasures implemented to prevent a spill from occurring and a series of
response procedures in the event that one does.
The SPCC plan addresses the following three areas:
Operating procedures that prevent oil spills
Control measures installed to prevent a spill from reaching the environment
Counter measures to contain, clean-up and mitigate the effects of an oil spill that
reaches the environment
Picking the right materials for spill control and containment is a bit of a science. Choose
an absorbent that soaks up more than you need and you may be paying too much. However,
choose an absorbent that doesn’t soak up enough, and you may
have to purchase more than you actually need.
There are three ways you can
quickly assess if you're using the right materials:
Check product type - Are you using pads for a leak that a SOC can contain?
Check durability - Are your absorbents falling apart due to heavy traffic?
Check absorbency - Are your absorbents being used to capacity?
