  • Maintaining inspection records for 3 years.

  • Personnel not properly trained in spill prevention procedures.

  • Oil storage tanks having no secondary containment or improperly sized containment.

Why choose STEP to assist with your environmental needs?

Our goal is to develop plans that can be used successfully to prevent and control spills as

well as minimize impacts to the quality of surface water.  We partner with our clients to

gain knowledge on the fundamental facility operations, spill response capabilities, and

other key concerns.  We are then able to develop an effective plan based on facility

knowledge, the regulations, best management practices, and years of experience.


After determining the type of plan that your facility will need to develop, there are other

considerations that you will have to make.  Providing manpower, equipment, and resources

together with management support are critical elements of your plan.  You must also

ensure personnel are properly trained, ensure maintenance and inspections are in order,

and maintain records and documentation.
