SCCOM enables an automated workflow, providing the user with everything needed to handle and rapidly report pollution events.
Hudson, MA (PRWEB) December 14, 2015
Spill Center® has introduced a full-featured, mobile device interface application for companies at risk for environmental releases of hazardous materials and other pollutants. Called SCCOM, the app displays a dynamically generated dashboard of electronic tools, tailored to the user’s profile, whether that is a truck operator, fleet manager, plant safety officer, insurance adjuster, or other user who needs immediate access to emergency response resources and incident reporting.
SCCOM enables an intelligent, automated workflow, providing a link that gives the user everything needed to handle and report pollution events. Clicking on SCCOM triggers a coordinated effort that includes communication with a Spill Center team that is experienced in working with authorities at the site of the spill, completing required incident reporting, and managing cleanup and site remediation operations.
When the user opens the app on a smartphone or other mobile device to report an incident, a list of available Spill Center resources appears on the screen, along with a map indicating the precise location of the incident. The user can select the type of assistance needed: cleanup contractors, environmental consultants, tele-medicine, legal services, and other specialists.
The interface provides details about the spill to Spill Center compliance associates, who begin coordinating an appropriate response and preparing incident reports. Spill Center maintains a database with comprehensive information on more than 3,000 contractors throughout North America who are qualified and equipped to respond quickly to spills. Another database contains contact information and reporting requirements for nearly 30,000 local, state, provincial and federal jurisdictions.
The SCCOM app provides the names of cleanup contractors closest to the spill. Contact information and distances from the contractors’ locations to the incident site are accessible through the app, along with information on each contractor’s capabilities and qualifications. All information is optimized for mobile devices.
The app can serve as a mobile command center for company executives who are responsible for handling pollution emergencies, enabling them to command and control their own response to the spill. Spill generators can handle the response themselves or opt to have the Spill Center team take charge, coordinating with authorities at the scene and contractors, while completing the required reporting. The client is kept in the loop throughout. An alert distribution feature enables users to create groups of contacts for various levels of notification. The app also provides the ability to review past incidents. The locations of the company’s previous spills are marked on a map and linked to a report of each spill. The user can also post photos of incidents to spill reports.
SCCOM provides users the power of timely and accurate incident reporting to avoid fines and penalties for non-compliance with environmental regulations. It also provides the ability to respond quickly in order to mitigate damages and contain spill-related costs. Operators involved in transportation spills and facility managers experiencing pollution events are able to instantly connect with the right people at the touch of a smartphone screen.
