Spill Kit Regulations
Q: Do ENPAC spill kits meet the requirements of US government regulations especially DOT, NPDES, and the SPCC?
All ENPAC Spill Kits fill an important role in the industrial facility by providing a means to cleanup and prevent spilled or leaked hazardous materials from reaching the drain and thus blocking them from entering the water supply. Spill kits also help the operator comply with “Best Practices” and “Housekeeping” requirements of their pollution prevention plans. These features are required in EPA NPDES regulations [National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System 40CFR122.26].
All ENPAC Spill Kits are also an essential element in helping the industrial operation to provide Control and Countermeasures for potential hazmat spills, as well as “Spill Prevention” and “Housekeeping” requirements of their pollution prevention plans. These features are required in EPA SPCC regulations [Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures 40CFR112].
ENPAC Spill Kits that employ the Poly-Overpack® Salvage Drum help keep the materials clean and ready to use, and provide an authorized package to ship the “...packages of hazardous materials that are damaged, defective, or found leaking and hazardous materials that have spilled or leaked...” in accordance with DOT regulations [Salvage Drum 49CFR173.3 (c)].
Finally, although not specifically required by OSHA [29CFR1910], ENPAC Spill Kits help the employer or business owner to comply with the “safe workplace” rules and guidelines established in this regulation.
