Hi, Im after someone to write a spill management plan for a new vacuum truck business I'm starting. Ideally, you will need to have knowledge in this area or know someone who does, or even better, know somebody with a Vacuum truck business and get their SMP and copy it.
Heres an outline of what the SMP needs to contain from the Department of Environmental Regulations.
Spill management plan
Carrier licence conditions may specify the need for a carrier to have a documented spill management plan (SMP). A SMP outlines the actions to be taken in the event of an unauthorised or spill of controlled waste.
The carrier must ensure a copy of the SMP accompanies any vehicle or tank transporting controlled waste.
Spill management equipment must also accompany vehicles when transporting controlled waste on a road.
The purpose of a SMP is to limit harm to the environment and the public in the event of a controlled waste spill. The SMP must clearly outline the actions to be taken should a spill occur (stop, contain, report, clean up, and record).
The following is the key information that should be present in an SMP.
Spill management procedures—how will the spill be managed?
Spill management people—which people and resources are in charge of the spill
Equipment—what equipment will be used to contain and manage the spill and
where will it come from?
Disposal—where will the spilt controlled waste be disposed and who will dispose of
Notification flow-path—who will be contacted in the event of a spill? Include full name and contact phone number.
Driver information package for transportation of bulk controlled waste DER2015000136
Type of report—how will the spill be reported?
Report recipient—who will receive the spill report?
Report content—what will be reported?
Timeline for reporting—the carrier and driver are both obliged to immediately notify
the Department in the event of any waste discharging at a location other than a waste facility, or spilling or falling from a vehicle used to transport controlled waste.
Controlled waste codes—what are the controlled waste codes being transported?
Controlled waste properties—what are the properties of the controlled waste being
Transportation—how is the controlled waste transported?
Routing—where is the controlled waste transported and where are the likely
locations of a spill?
Environmental impacts—what are the likely environmental impacts of a spill?
Suggested reference material in relation to spill management is:
Standards Australia (2001), HB76:1997– Dangerous Goods – Initial Emergency Response Guide. Appendix F – State and Territory.
Prior to collecting or transporting controlled waste a driver:
must ensure the vehicle contains a SMP and suitable spill management kit or equipment;
should be familiar with the carrier’s spill management plan and ensure a copy is located in the vehicle;
Should in the event of a spill use the 3C’s approach;
2. Contain—prevent the spill from spreading or entering drains (absorbent)
3. Clean up—ensure waste material is disposed of in an appropriate manner.
In the event of a spill, a driver is required to contain the spill in accordance with the carrier’s SMP and also immediately report it to the Department.
