Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans
SPILL PREVENTION, CONTROL AND COUNTERMEASURE PLANS ONLINE COURSE OVERVIEW
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), many of the 14,000 oil spills reported each year are caused by industry activities resulting from storage tanks rupturing, pipeline leaks, and oil transport accidents. These spills present a significant threat to the environment and often require specially trained emergency response personnel to contain and clean up the spills. Some spills are so significant that they may require help from local and state agencies and the federal government.
