Environmental Emergencies

THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST ENVIRONMENTAL EMERGENCIES IS A WELL TRAINED CREW

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Join us at our Timmins location for a 1-day workshop to help you prepare for and respond to environmental emergencies, including spills. 

The day will start with a review of the regulatory requirements for environmental emergency response planning, including:

  • Provincial Spill Prevention and Contingency Plan Regulation (SPCR).
  • Federal Environmental Emergency Regulations (E2) – including RECENT updates; and
  • Federal Metal Diamond Mining Effluent Regulations (MDMER).

Participants will be provided with a template for conducting required site spill risk assessments to ensure regulatory requirements are met and site-specific spill risks are identified, prioritized and planned for.

We will instruct participants in the preparation and conduct of “mock spill” exercises, supported by hands-on activities.  Students will be walked through simple debrief exercises and provided templates for implementation and customization at their facility, followed up by a typical debrief to an Emergency Response Plan test.

Finally, we’ll explore the reporting requirements associated with environmental emergencies and answer some common questions, including:

  • What is a “Reportable Spill”?
  • Who must I report to?
  • How soon must I report?
  • Are written reports required, and under what timelines?

Participants will receive printed materials inducing editable templates. Lunch is included.
