PART F - VERIFICATION OF EQUIPMENT, PERSONNEL, AND CORRECT
PROCEDURES TO CONTAIN AND CLEAN UP A HAZMAT SPILL
Equipment and material required for each work area can be found in the local unit ISCP and SPCC. Prior to
beginning any operation, conduct an inspection of the petroleum facility to verify the presence/condition of
the following hazardous materials spill containment and cleanup equipment/materials:
Solusorb Solvent Absorbent.
Periodically check the equipment/materials for serviceability, making sure that they are in serviceable
condition. Ensure that personnel are familiar with the local unit ISCP and SPCC.
Spill Containment and Clean-Up Training Verification. Periodically the supervisor of the
petroleum facility should conduct exercises to verify that personnel are trained in up-to-date spill containment
and cleanup procedures. Verify that petroleum facility personnel are current with the emergency spill
containment and cleanup procedures/requirements. Upon discovery of a spill, personnel shall take action as
Safely stop the source of the spill, if possible (closing valves, uprighting containers, etc.).
Contain the spill.
Ensure adequate ventilation.

Is the spill confined to a hard surface?
Is it possible that the spill will reach surface waters, wetlands, groundwater, streams, ditches, sewers, or
Does the reporting activity have the capability to contain or clean up the spill?
Is the spilled substance classified with a required quantity (RQ) value?
Not only is the appropriate equipment important when handling a spill, but it is also important to have
properly trained personnel. The supervisor's duty is to verify that personnel conducting an operation are
trained in the proper use of spill cleanup and containment equipment. Those handling the spill must also
employ the proper procedures IAW the ISCP and SPCC.
