Training and compliance are easy to put off, but there’s no getting around it. Training has to happen. On top of that, it’s hard to know what you even need for compliance sometimes. So, when it gets down to crunch time and you need end-of-year training and compliance, how do you plan on getting it all done? (Especially now with labor shortages?)
Here are three main areas to address for end-of-year training and compliance, and what to look for in a strong company to fill those needs. Follow up in these areas, and you’re doing well.
Training and Compliance
The whole rather obvious point of yearly training is to train employees and stay in compliance… But that training needs to do more for you: it needs to increase your safety rating, which in turn provides more business opportunities, as well as a more confident workforce.
The bare minimum doesn’t cut it.
A trustworthy training and compliance vendor provides not only engaging classes but also reminds you when training needs to happen before you’re in an end-of-year crunch. A good vendor keeps things effective and simple.
Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plans
The end of the year is a good time to check your Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan, ensuring it’s up to date. If you haven’t updated the plan in quite a while and you have a surprise EPA inspection, the vendor you used may have moved or be out of business. Not good.
And not a single living soul likes surprises during an inspection.
Check your plan’s spill responder. If you’re looking for a new spill responder, look for one with a high safety rating that’s been around for decades, with a solid reputation in the industry.
Facility Response Plan & Government Initiated Unannounced Exercise
With both a Facility Response Plan (FRP) and a Government Initiated Unannounced Exercise (GIUE), you have to activate your emergency response plan in real-time at regular intervals, which includes calling your environmental response vendor.
The right environmental company understands the importance of these inspections, drops everything, checks traffic, and calls you back with the list of equipment they’re bringing and the number of people. And they will arrive at your facility exactly as promised.
Find an environmental company you can trust that can still, today, meet your demands and come fully staffed at a moment’s notice.
