Did you know that the Multi-Sector Generic Permit (MSGP) requires industrial facilities to conduct annual training with their employees?
Employee training is an integral piece of making your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) program a success. Your employees are working with potentially hazardous materials, which if not controlled properly can lead to severe human health and environmental impacts.
Anyone at your facility who is responsible for maintaining tools and machinery, cleaning materials, or storing and handling materials should be aware of how to best prevent contaminating stormwater discharges.
Additionally, employee training should be documented in the SWPPP with the content, schedule of training, and a log of the employees who received the training. Trainings should cover the following:
- Spill response procedures
- Good housekeeping practices
- Material storage and management practices
- Stormwater discharge monitoring procedures
- BMP operation and maintenance
- Quarterly and annual inspection requirements
