Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--February 18, 2013, to February 22, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed stormwater pollution prevention plans, OSHA requirements for PPE, and PSM recordkeeping requirements.
Here’s the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

Payout for No SWPPP--A Texas glass recycling facility is paying a huge penalty for allowing polluted stormwater from its Massachusetts facility to flow into nearby waters.

Spills and Your SWPPP--Does your stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) identify control measures that are used at your site to minimize the potential for spills, leaks, and other releases that may come into contact with stormwater?

Fined for Poor PPE--OSHA has recently cited an Illinois bumper manufacturing plant with 6 serious safety violations for failing to protect workers from exposure to hazardous materials and provide adequate emergency response plans and training.

Picking the Perfect PPE for Your Eyes--Are your sure that your workers use personal protective equipment (PPE) when exposed to hazards capable of causing injury and impairment. These included a lack of eye and face protection for workers exposed to liquid chemicals, acids, or caustic liquids.

PSM Recordkeeping--Do You Know the 13 Process Safety Management (PSM)-related records your facility must have available to show an OSHA inspector?
