Minimizing Risk from Spilled Fluids Through Preparedness & Compliance


Slips, trips, and falls make up over 20% of workplace injury costs and the leaked or spilled fluids be a major contributor to those hazards.  These “rogue” fluids can come from nearby equipment, production lines or even inclement weather.

Leaks and spills can affect many aspects of your operation and your business. Complying with regulatory requirements from OSHA, EPA and DOT will not only help you avoid fines but give you a guideline for keeping your facility, the surrounding environment, and your employees safe.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Why clean, dry workplace floors are important to OSHA and how following their regulation will reduce your risk.
  2. What is an SPCC Plan (Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure) and which facilities are required by the EPA to have one in place.
  3. OSHA, EPA, and DOT regulations and what you can do to maintain your compliance (and prevent unnecessary fines, environmental issues and costly workplace injuries).

OSHA    29CFR 1910:       Floors in Your Workplace Should Be Maintained in A Clean & Dry Condition

 EPA       40CFR 112:         Facilities Should Have Appropriate Containment to Prevent Discharge Oil from Reaching a Navigable Water
