ERAP

Some questions for you to ponder regarding ERAPs:

  • does your company have an emergency response assistance plan (ERAP)?
  • has it been reviewed by Transport Canada?
  • do you use a third party provider to provide the technical information?
  • do you use a third party provider to respond to the incident site for remediation?

If you are using a third party for incident response, have you:

  • recently audited the provider?
  • ensured that they have the proper tools to handle your products?
  • provided training on your products?
  • ensured that they have the proper equipment, i.e. UN specification packaging, correct specification tankage, hoses, couplings, etc.?
  • checked that they are following the closure instructions for the UN specification packaging?
  • checked to make sure that they are providing the right technical information?
  • checked to make sure that they can respond to wherever the incident is?

Keep in mind that when there is a dangerous goods incident involving an ERAP, it is the ERAP holder who is held responsible for the emergency response.

Are YOU prepared for any emergency?
