Appropriate medical attention for all injuries and illnesses.

Applicable Structural Source Control:
• Use fixed platforms  with  appropriate plastic or tarpaulin  barriers  as  work surfaces  and  for containment when performing  work on a vessel  in the  water to  prevent blast material or paint overspray from contacting storm water or the receiving water. Use of such platforms will be kept to a minimum and at no time be used for extensive repair or construction (anything in excess of 25 percent of the surface area of the vessel above the waterline).
• Use plastic or tarpaulin barriers beneath the hull and between the hull and dry dock walls to contain and collect waste and spent materials. Clean and sweep regularly to remove debris.
• Enclose, cover, or contain blasting and sanding activities to the maximum extent practicable to prevent abrasives, dust, and paint chip from reaching storm sewers or receiving waters.
Use plywood and/or plastic sheeting to cover open areas between decks when sandblasting
(Scuppers, railings, freeing ports, ladders, and doorways).
• Direct deck drainage to a collection system sump for settling and/or additional treatment.
• Store cracked batteries in a covered secondary container.

Recommended Additional Operational   :
• Consider recycling paint, paint thinner, solvents, used oils, oil filters, pressure wash wastewater and any other recyclable materials.
• Perform activities like paint mixing, solvent mixing, and fuel mixing on shore inside or under cover or on an impervious area with adequate containment.
Loading and Unloading Areas for Liquid or Solid Material

Description of Pollutant Sources:  Loading/unloading of liquid and solid materials at industrial and commercial facilities is typically conducted at shipping and receiving, outside storage, and fueling areas. Materials transferred can include products, raw materials, intermediate products, waste materials, fuels, scrap metals, etc. Leaks and spills  of  fuels, oils,  powders, organics, heavy  metals, salts, acids,  and alkalis  during  transfer are  potential causes  of storm  water contamination. Spills from hydraulic line breaks are a common problem at loading docks.

Pollutant Control Approach:  Cover and contain the loading/ unloading area where necessary to prevent run-on of storm water and runoff of contaminated storm water.
At All Loading/ Unloading Areas:
• A significant amount of debris can accumulate outside uncovered loading/unloading areas.
Sweep  these  surfaces  frequently  to  remove  material  that  could  otherwise  be  washed  off  by storm water. Sweep outside areas that are covered for a period by containers, logs, or other material after the areas are cleared.
• Place drip pans, or other appropriate temporary containment  device, at locations where leaks or spills may occur, such as hose connections, hose reels and filler nozzles. Always use drip pans when making and breaking connections. Check loading and unloading equipment such as valves, pumps, flanges, and connections regularly for leaks and repair as needed. At Tanker Truck and Rail Transfer Areas to Above/Below-ground Storage Tanks:
• To minimize the risk of accidental spillage, prepare an "Operations Plan" that describes procedures for loading/unloading. Train employees, especially forklift operators, in its execution and post it or otherwise have it readily available to employees.
• Prepare and implement an Emergency Spill Cleanup Plan for the facility that includes the followings:
-Ensure the cleanup of liquid/solid spills in the loading/ unloading area immediately, if a significant spill occurs, and, upon completion of the loading/unloading activity, or at the end of the working day.
Retain and maintain an appropriate oil spill cleanup kit on-site for rapid cleanup of material spills
- Ensure that an employee trained in spill containment and cleanup is present during
- Notify Clients concerned department
- At Rail Transfer Areas to Above/below-ground Storage Tanks: Install a drip pan system within the rails to collect spills/leaks from tank cars and hose connections, hose reels, and filler nozzles


Applicable Structural Source Control:
At All Loading/ Unloading Areas:
• To the extent practicable, conduct unloading or loading of solids and liquids in a manufacturing building, under a roof, or lean-to, or other appropriate cover
• Berm, dike, and/or slope the loading/unloading area to prevent run-on of storm water and to prevent the runoff or loss of any spilled material from the area.
• Large loading areas frequently are not curbed along the shoreline. As a result, storm water passes directly off the paved surface into surface water. Place curbs along the edge, or slope the edge such that the storm water can flow to an internal storm drain system that leads to a treatment.
• Pave and slope loading/unloading areas to prevent the pooling of water. The use of catch basins and drain lines within the interior of the paved area must be minimized as they will frequently be covered by material, or they should be placed in designated "alleyways" that are not covered by material, containers or equipment.
Recommended Structural Source Control BMP: For the transfer of pollutant liquids in areas that cannot contain a catastrophic spill, install an automatic shutoff system in case of unanticipated off-loading interruption (e.g. coupling break, hose rupture, overfill, etc.).
At Loading and Unloading Docks:
• Install/maintain overhangs, or door skirts that enclose the trailer end, to prevent contact with rainwater.
• Design the loading/unloading area with berms and grading to prevent the run-on of storm water.
• Retain on-site the necessary materials for rapid cleanup of spills.


At Tanker Truck Transfer Areas to Above/Below-Ground Storage Tanks:
• Pave the area on which the transfer takes place. If any transferred liquid, such as gasoline, is reactive with asphalt, pave the area with Portland cement concrete.
• Slop berm, or dike the transfer area to a dead-end sump, spill containment sump, an oil/grit separator, or other spill control device.
Potential Pollutant Generating Sources    :Potential pollutant sources include leaks/spills of used oils, solvents, paints, batteries, acids, strong acid/alkaline wastes, paint/varnish removers, tars, soaps, coatings, asbestos, lubricants, anti-freeze compounds, litter, and fuels at the headquarters, operation, staging, and maintenance/repair locations of the businesses. Demolition contractors may store reclaimed material before resale.
Roofing contractors generate residual tars and sealing compounds, spent solvents, kerosene, and soap cleaners, as well as non-hazardous-waste roofing materials. Sheet metal contractors produce small quantities of acids and solvent cleaners such as kerosene, metal shavings, adhesive residues and enamel coatings, and asbestos residues that have been removed from buildings. Asphalt paving contractors are likely to store application equipment such as dump trucks, pavers, tack coat tankers and pavement rollers at their businesses. Storm water passing through this equipment may be contaminated by the petroleum residuals. Potential pollutants include oil and grease, suspended solids, BOD, heavy metals, pH, COD, and organic compounds.
Prohibit uncontained spray painting, blasting or sanding activities over open water or in any area where these activities may be exposed to rain, snow, snow melt or runoff.

• Do not dump or pour waste materials down floor drains, sinks, or outdoor storm drain inlets that discharge to surface water or groundwater. Plug floor drains that are connected to storm drains or to surface water. If necessary, install a sump that is pumped regularly.
• Prohibit outside spray painting, blasting or sanding activities during windy conditions that render containment ineffective.
• Do not paint and/or use spray guns on topsides or above decks.
Store toxic materials under cover during precipitation events and when not in use to prevent contact with storm water.
