Spills & Emergency Response Plans - Summary
Whenever you use or store chemicals there exists the possibility that an accidental spill or release may occur. Best management practices recommend that you plan for this possibility by preparing a spill response plan outlining how you can respond to a release and by maintaining the spill response materials described in your plan at your site. By being prepared it may be possible to prevent a small spill from becoming a major hazmat incident.
