As the person responsible for SPCC compliance, you know the costs of being out of compliance. Big fines. Bad publicity.
If keeping the plan up-to-date isn’t enough, you’ve got to complete and file inspections, keep secondary containment systems in shape, maintain security… oh, and conduct refresher training at some point this year.
Keeping track of new hires who need initial training and everyone who has retired or moved on and no longer needs training is hard enough. But you’ve also got to tally up everyone else on the oil handler list and make sure they’re retrained and up-to-date.
We know that it’s a burden to gather everyone at one place and time to complete a training that most of them don’t want to sit through anyway. Some companies take the “tailgate discharge briefings” shortcut that may not meet all of the requirements and doesn’t get properly documented; or worse, they skip retraining all together!
Even if oil has never left your property, when you skip annual refresher training, you’re looking at a minimum fine of $1,500.00 and the possibility of fines up to $32,000 per day, per violation.
Don’t sell your team short or open yourself to potential liability for non-compliance. Leaving it up to supervisors to cover SPCC topics during tailgates probably won’t cut it – especially if there’s no way to gauge comprehension. Will everyone remember what they need to do when there is an oil spill? “Maybe” isn’t a good enough answer.
Why put your facility at risk for big fines and bad publicity when there’s an easy way to stay in compliance with annual refresher training requirements?
Ensure that all oil handlers receive annual refresher training?
Gauge their comprehension?
Prepare them to prevent discharges?
Forget trying to schedule traditional classroom trainings and coordinating them over several days or weeks to accommodate everyone on every shift. Forget trying to schedule make-up sessions for those stragglers who were on vacation or were out sick on their scheduled day.
Now you can conduct your annual refresher training anytime, anywhere, using whatever electronic device your oil handlers have available: laptops, desktops, phones, or tablets.
