Spill Kits & Absorbents

Control or Major Accident Hazards, (COMAH)  Chemical Spill Control and Containment Procedures.

The generation and implementation of effective emergency response and spill control procedures are fundamental aspects of a safety management system.

The on-site emergency plan, prepared for Regulation 9 of COMAH should address procedures for dealing with emergency situations involving loss of containment in general terms. Full detail of the required contents is provided in Part 2, Chapter 6 of the SRAM. The SRAM document is the COMAH Competent Authority's internally-targeted guidance on the assessment of COMAH safety reports. It describes the framework within which the CA undertakes the assessment of safety reports and the processes its staff should follow in assessing safety reports submitted to them by operators of upper-tier COMAH establishments, pursuant to regulations 9 and 10 of the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015 (COMAH).

The emergency plan should be simple and straightforward, flexible and achieve necessary compliance with legislative requirements. Furthermore separate on-site and off-site emergency plans should be prepared.
