Learn your risks and protect your business
Attend the free 2017 Alaska Trucking Spill Management Workshop
The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC), Alaska Department of Transportation (ADOT), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) will be hosting the 2017 Alaska Trucking Spill Management workshop on March 30th in Fairbanks and April 4th in Anchorage.
Every year thousands of gallons of refined fuels and hazardous substances are released in Alaska as a result of trucking incidents. Spills vary in size and even small quantities can present a challenging cleanup. While every spill is different, state and federal agencies have come together to present information as to what industry would likely encounter in the event of a spill along a roadway.
Agenda items will include:
- Opening remarks and introductions
- Open discussion of products and quantities currently transported in Alaska.
- Reporting: when to report what and to who to report it to following an accident or a release.
- Prevention, keeping trucks on the road.
- What agencies would potentially be involved in evaluating, and coordinating the cleanup activities? A presentation by ADOT, ADEC, USCG, EPA and other agencies regarding what can be expected from their respective agencies during a response.
- The importance of a comprehensive utility locate prior to excavation
- The importance of adequate pollution insurance. During a response, who will be the Incident Commander, will it be a company representative or an insurance representative?
- Lessons learned presentations from recent responses.
- Open up the forum for questions and discussions.
