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.
