hazards associated with the spill and decide whether project employees or external response
organizations should conduct the cleanup. If the Project Manager determines that project
response personnel cannot safely perform the spill cleanup, the Project Manager should notify
and request the assistance of, the Emergency Response Coordinator, and the ERP should be
activated.
14.6. ORGANIZING A SPILL RESPONSE
If the Project Manager determines that cleanup can be performed safely with project response
personnel, the SSHO may act as the spill team leader and designate required procedures. Safety
practices for small spill operations closely parallel procedures implemented during routine
hazardous materials handling operations. Before work begins, the SSHO should conduct a
hazard identification and assessment with response personnel. The following should be
discussed and established:
Levels of PPE and safety procedures,
Safety and work zones,
All steps of the response activities,
Most effective procedures or methods for cleanup,
Means of containment,
Leak or spill control,
Decontamination procedures, and
Emergency decontamination.
14.7. SPILL CLEANUP PROCEDURES
After care of injured personnel, containment of the released hazardous material should be the
next consideration to limit its effect on the safety of personnel, the public, and the environment.
The SSHO should determine the methods of control which depend upon the nature and extent of
the spill. Actions documented in Chapter 11, Emergency Response/Contingency Plan should
also be consulted. Decontamination should be accomplished in accordance with Chapter 10,
Decontamination and disposal of contaminated materials should meet all regulatory
requirements.
14.8. POST INCIDENT FOLLOW-UP
The Project Manager or SSHO should implement necessary steps to ensure that the incident is
properly documented and that spill response equipment is replenished. The Project Manager
should direct the necessary corrective actions to prevent recurrence and evaluate the response.
