Industrial Spill Response Plans
Industry facilities that store, manufacture, transport, recycle or handle dangerous goods, hazardous wastes, or hazardous chemicals should prepare a response (contingency) plan to respond to an accidental release of these substances into the environment. These guidelines help owners and operators of industrial facilities develop emergency response plans for a timely and effective response to environmental emergencies.
