Course Overview


Protecting the environment from oil spill hazards is the responsibility of every field employee working at electrical power generation, transmission and distribution facilities. It’s not only the right thing to do; it is your legal obligation under the rules of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The rules governing your site’s Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure plan require each person to do his or her part in preventing, reporting and remediating the discharge of oil into the environment, especially waterways. This Video on Demand explains what a plan should contain, where the plan should be kept, the roles each employee plays in preventing, detecting and responding to leaks, and the role of the compliance coordinator. This video stresses the importance of every worker being aware of their responsibility to detect, report and remediate oil leaks, knowing proper procedures for draining oil from equipment, being prepared to and knowing how to respond to small oil leaks, and knowing their role upon discovering a large-scale discharge. Oil contamination can be devastating to the environment and wildlife. Being an environmental steward is part of every person’s job who works in the electrical generation, transmission and distribution industry.
