The greatest spill disasters occur when businesses are not prepared.
(PRWEB) June 24, 2015
An updated online library of informative spill-related podcasts is available from Spill Center®, a North American leader in environmental spill support and environmental claims management. The series covers a broad range of accidental spills requiring emergency response, cleanup and reporting.
Tom Moses, president of Spill Center, offers periodic advice, tips and explanations to help companies involved in spills and those at risk for spills to contain costs and limit liability related to environmental releases. Recent podcasts speak to preparedness and compliance, with more new content on its way!
The most popular of the podcasts is related to dealing with the media after a spill. Mr. Moses provides sound advice drawn from his white paper on the subject, about the importance of being open and honest with the media to help keep the good reputation of your company untarnished after a spill.
Another popular podcast in the series addresses the costs of spill cleanup and how to control them through a quick, efficient response and management of the operations. Mr. Moses, who holds a law degree and certificate of hazardous materials control and emergency response, recommends teaming up with a third-party with expertise in managing environmental spills, such as Spill Center.
Other podcasts deal with contingency planning (Planning a Spill) and ways to boost your company’s preparedness to handle spills quickly while maintaining a legally defensible position. Understanding Spill Liability is the subject of another podcast, which explains the responsibilities of the spill generator (the person with care and control of the spilled materials), regardless of fault.
