Plans and Procedures

EPA, DOT and OSHA require a vast number of written plans and procedures. Environmental Resource Center can determine which are applicable to your operations and then develop the required plans and procedures for you.

From hazardous materials and hazardous waste management to notification procedures, security plans, and emergency procedures, Environmental Resource Center can determine which plans are applicable to your operations, develop the required plans and procedures, and assist you with their implementation. An environmental audit is one of the many tools available from Environmental Resource Center to aid your facility in identifying and complying with relevant federal, state and local regulations. 

Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) - Environmental Resource Center will create a site-specific SWPPP by identifying sources of stormwater pollutants and best management practices applicable to your facility. We can also help you determine if you qualify for a certification of no exposure. Each industrial or manufacturing facility must either obtain a Stormwater Permit or submit a "No Exposure Certification."

Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Plan (SPCC) - Most facilities that store 1,320 gallons or more of petroleum or non-petroleum oils are required to have written SPCC plans. Environmental Resource Center can prepare your SPCC plan or update an existing plan to keep you in compliance with the federal, state and local regulations.

Contingency Plans - Under the hazardous waste regulations, if you are a large quantity generator of hazardous waste or if you have a permit for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste, you must have a contingency plan. Environmental Resource Center will prepare your plan in compliance with the latest regulations, including a Quick Reference Guide that conforms to the new Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements rule.

Risk Management Plans (RMP) - If you have any of 139 regulated substances on-site that are above their threshold quantities, you must have a risk management plan that includes a hazard assessment, prevention program, and emergency response program. Environmental Resource Center can help you develop and implement a comprehensive and effective RMP. We will evaluate your facility operations, complete a hazard assessment, and assist you with your prevention and emergency response programs. We can also establish whether you have any non-RMP listed extremely hazardous substances that are subject to RMP requirements.

Hazard Communication Written Program - Lack of a written hazard communication program is one of the most frequently cited OSHA violations. If your employees work with or are exposed to OSHA hazardous chemicals, a hazard communication plan is mandatory. Environmental Resource Center can develop a new plan or update your existing plan to meet the latest requirements.

Site Safety & Health Plans - Safety and health plans that may be required for your facility include OSHA lockout / tagout procedures, bloodborne pathogen protection, respiratory protection, hearing conservation, personal protective equipment, confined space entry, emergency and fire prevention, and many others. These plans are required to protect the health and safety of personnel who may come into contact with hazardous waste or other hazardous substances. We will assist you in collecting background information about your site and the chemicals potentially involved to develop plans that meet applicable regulatory requirements.

Employee Emergency and Fire Prevention Plans - We will examine your facility, assess potential emergency situations, and prepare plans that will ensure employee safety in an emergency or fire in accordance with applicable regulations [29 CFR 1910.38].

Process Safety Management - We will implement our 15-step approach to help you and your employees in their efforts to prevent or mitigate any hazardous chemical releases that could lead to a catastrophe in the workplace or the surrounding community.

Integrated Contingency Plans - We can combine the numerous hazardous materials, emergency response, and safety plans required for your facility into one functional plan while eliminating the confusion and minimizing duplication and expense of preparing multiple plans.
