Identify potential environmental hazards and develop and communicate to authorities and stakeholders a comprehensive compliance plan that covers the United States and global policies, regulations, and laws
This project is an emergency planning and response exercise.
You are to develop a scenario specific emergency response plan that meets OSHA’s Emergency Action Plan regulations in 29 CFR 1910.38 and a scenario specific environmental contingency plan that meets the requirements of EPA’s Contingency Plan regulations in 40 CFR 364.50 through 264.56 for the facility described in the project’s scenario and site plan. You may, if you chose, develop a single, comprehensive, scenario specific facility plan that will meet the requirements of both agencies for the facility described in the project’s scenario as long as all of the OSHA and EPA requirements are covered in your plan(s)..
We will post a specific scenario, including a site-plan drawing of a hypothetical facility and a brief description of the facility’s activities and the on-site storage, handling and use of hazardous waste, in an e-mail message during Week 6. Using your imagination, you are to provide any details, such as the name of the facility, a description of the first-response personnel, their duties and responsibilities, community coordination and response organizations, public awareness methods, and any other information you believe necessary to control and mitigate the hazards of the specific facility in the scenario that are not provided in the project scenario.
There are no restrictions on the length of your presentation other than that you must address all of the EPA and OSHA requirements. Your plan(s) must be comprehensive enough to demonstrate your understanding of the EPA/OSHA regulations and how they apply to all of the hazards identified in the scenario you are given.
Please submit your paper as a Microsoft Word file in your Assignments folder by the due date.
