Spill Response 130 – Municipal Spills
Stormwater regulations require municipal
facilities to implement an operation and
maintenance program that includes an
employee training component on municipal spills that has the ultimate goal of preventing or reducing pollutant runoff from municipal operations.
Preventing spills of materials and wastes is a significant component of complying with these regulations, however, even with the best prevention efforts, spills may still occur. When they do, it is up to facility personnel to respond quickly and effectively to clean up the spilled material or notify someone who can.
This 7-hour course, for Municipal Workers, is specially designed to inform and train workers responsible for Spill Cleanup.
Spilled chemicals should be effectively and quickly contained and cleaned up. Employees should clean up spills themselves only if properly trained and protected. Employees who are not trained in spill cleanup procedures should report the spill to a Supervisor, warn other employees, and leave the area.
