How to create an Effective Spill Response Plan

How to create an Effective Spill Response Plan

The primary objective of these Plans is to help prevent or reduce the risk of spills of pollutants and prevent, eliminate or ameliorate any adverse effects that result or may result. This training provides detailed information and guidance on actions important for the prevention of spills and procedures to detect and respond to them when they occur.

The Ministry has developed, after extensive consultation with stakeholders representing the MISA sectors, the Regulation under section 91.1 of the EPA. This Regulation defines a class of persons that is subject to the Regulation, as well as the requirements for developing and implementing Plans. The design of this Regulation is consistent with the principles of risk management of environmental emergencies (i.e., prevention, planning, response, restoration and review).

The purpose of this training is to provide the regulated community guidance on the development and implementation of Plans, as prescribed by the Regulation by explaining the meaning of key terms of the Regulation and providing details on the minimum Guideline for Implementing Spill Prevention and Contingency Plans requirements for prevention and contingency planning for spills.

Please note that the Regulation will take precedence where a conflict or ambiguity exists between this training and the requirements of the Regulation. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained within this training, and that it is consistent with the Regulation, it should not be construed as legal advice.
