When oil is spilled, it can endanger public health and the environment, as well as cost millions of dollars in clean up and disposal. To prevent oil contamination of navigable waterways and adjoining shorelines, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency created the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure rule. Having a spill prevention plan in place is among the most effective and efficient tools in preventing environmental contamination. This course will discuss spill-related pollution, spill prevention techniques, appropriate procedures for controlling a spill in the event that one occurs, and countermeasure techniques that can be taken to help comply with federal regulations.
