GeoInsight's engineers, compliance specialists, and scientists are experts at developing customized, strategic emergency response and contingency plans. Consistent with our client-centered approach, we take the time to meet with facility personnel before we prepare these plans to establish project-specific parameters, and to develop a strong understanding of your practices and unique business operations.
We work with owners, facility managers, and other staff members to develop appropriate levels of response to emergencies. We customize awareness and emergency response training for specific operations and release scenarios at your facility. Our facility-specific plans include responses to:
Any facility having an aggregate oil storage volume of 1,320 gallons (55-gallon containers or larger) requires a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan. The SPCC Plan must provide for proper management and storage of oil-containing vessels.
Depending on the storage, use, and/or location of oil and hazardous materials, facilities may be required to prepare emergency response and contingency plans. The overall objectives of contingency planning are to develop management strategies for the storage and release of hazardous materials and enable effective decision-making for response personnel.
If more than one emergency response and/or contingency plan is required for a single facility, the United States Environmental Protection Agency encourages the development of an Integrated Contingency Plan (ICP). Generally, an IPC is prepared to minimize duplicity among multiple plans. This eliminates confusion for facility first responders and improves coordination between facility response personnel and local, state, and federal emergency response personnel.
