Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC)

SPCC is a part of the Clean Water Act that is primarily targeted at reducing the amount of petroleum and petroleum-like substances that reach the waterways of the state. Large containers of these substances present the most risk, so SPCC plans are made to demonstrate how large containers (55 gallons or greater) are inspected, maintained and repaired as well as how container failures that lead to releases (spills) are addressed. 

Employees that work in areas where these materials exist in sufficient volume are required to be trained. If you are unsure whether or not this applies to you, contact EHS for assistance.
