New pollution laws: don’t be caught out

 

The Protection of the Environment Operations Act was amended earlier this year requiring businesses to develop, implement and test pollution incident response plans for all licensed activities.
 
The plans must include:
 
  • Description and likelihood of hazards
  • Pre-emptive actions to be taken
  • Inventory of pollutants
  • Safety equipment
  • Communicating with neighbours and the community
  • Minimising harm to persons on the premises
  • Actions to be taken during or immediately after a pollution incident
  • Staff training
 
A phase in period of six months applies to current license holders but new operations will have to comply before becoming operational.
 
This new regulation also changes pollution incident notification protocols.
 
Spill Station, a leading supplier of environment protection products, has a range of products and services to assist in complying with the new regulations.
 
Contact Spill Station to find out how their spill response solutions can help you.
