Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--June 17, 2013, to June 21, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed spill response, hazardous waste identification, and summertime emergencies.

Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

Spill response best practices--Spills sounds so innocuous and accidental. But, spilled fluids can pollute the environment and harm people in the community and your workers. Spills also create a financial liability for your business.

What's in your spill kit?--One very effective best practice for spills is to keep spill sorbents and a "spill kit" in each area where fluids are handled and stored.

Waste anaylsis: LGQs and SQGs need a plan--Large quantity generators (LQGs) and small quantity generators (SQGs) of hazardous waste must develop and implement a waste analysis plan (WAP) to classify the hazardous waste and ensure that it is managed properly.

Make sure all these elements are in your WAP--Yesterday we told you about the requirements of a waste analysis plan (WAP). The purpose of a waste analysis plan (WAP) is to achieve a detailed analysis of a representative sample of the hazardous waste(s) being treated.

Be prepared for unique summertime dangers-- If a devastating weather emergency such as a hurricane, a killer tornado, or a deadly fire were to strike in your area, would your employees be prepared to cope with such a difficult, stressful, and dangerous situation?
