Do you know how to prevent and respond to fuel and oil spills at your marina? This course will walk you through the simple steps you can take to prevent a spill an your marina and how to respond should a spill occur. We start with an overview of oil spills and their impact on the environment and identify the most spill-prone areas of a marina. The course also covers the steps staff can take to prevent and plan for spills. It includes interactive lessons and video interviews with marina managers and spill responders. This course does not provide HAZWOPER certification but covers the ways you can help should a spill occur without putting yourself in harms way.
