Accidental spills of chemicals, petroleum and other hazardous substances can happen any time and to any one. RIT's main goal is to avoid spills whenever possible but in the event that a spill occurs, the effectiveness of our response to these incidents determines how well we are able to protect and preserve the environmental quality of campus. RIT has created plans to minimize spill incidents, trains employees on how to respond to a spill and maintains an inventory of spill cleanup materials in case of emergency.
PLEASE CALL PUBLIC SAFETY AT 475-3333 IF THERE IS A SPILL ON CAMPUS.
RIT stores and utilizes petroleum on campus for a number essential functions, from back up generators to elevators. As such, RIT has created and maintains a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan. This plan identifies potential hazards arising from petroleum spills on campus and informs those involved in the storage and dispensing of petroleum of the appropriate response measures in the event of a spill.
Employees who are required to handle petroleum as part of their jobs are required to be trained on the contents of the SPCC Plan on an annual basis.
