SPCC Training vs Stormwater Training – What's the difference?

by Doug

Training on your environmental permits & approvals is often required to stay in compliance. Failure to train can cost you in fines, penalties, and violations, and endanger your employees because they won't understand what to do, how to act, or how to treat an emergency. Here we discuss why two key training areas often incorrectly get combined, and why you should never mistake these as the same thing.

One of my staff members just finished up an SPCC Training workshop recently. We had a large client in a room, and we went over, in detail, their SPCC Plan, what it is, why they need one, the works. At the end of the day, one of their guys thanked us for helping to kill two birds with one stone, and we really helped their staff a lot. Confused, my guy asked what he meant.

The Top 10 Things To Do During Your SPCC Plan Monthly Inspections

by Doug

If you have an SPCC Plan, regardless of which type, you need to do monthly inspections. And, you need to keep records of the inspections. Here we discuss the top 10 things to do, look for, or pay attention to when you conduct your monthly inspections.

We do a ton of SPCC Plans, and if there's one area that everyone seems to struggle with, it's the ongoing monthly inspections. We've heard every excuse in the book, from I don't have the time, to it's confusing, to nothing every changes, so why even do them?

It just seems that so many people get hung up on doing the actual inspections. What gives?

The inspection sheet we give our clients as part of their SPCC Plans is a one page, double sided list of target areas that we've seen as usually needing inspecting at facilities. The list is short, and it shouldn't take a lot of time to do, because we think monthly inspections should be short and sweet, and because you've probably got other more important things to be doing.
