We would encourage all of our members to have a scheme like this in placeMark Askew, CEO of the Federation of Petroleum suppliers said of the OAMPS 24/7 emergency environmental and disaster response plan
24/7 emergency environmental and disaster response
As an OAMPS Petrochemical client you receive access to our 24 hour environmental emergency response facility operated by OHES Environmental. We have our own UK wide network of Level 2(Advice at the scene) Incident Managers on call, many of them are ex-environmental regulators and they are all experienced in managing incidents and working with the emergency services. We can rapidly deploy one of our specialist environmental team to attend the site, co-ordinate remediation activities and provide at the scene advice.
More likely, especially for larger spills and incidents, a Level 3(Clean-up) response may be required. Should the incident warrant such intervention, emergency spill response can be co-ordinated by ourselves and we can mobilise a clean-up responder, on your behalf. 24-7 hold a national database of pre-screened, accredited specialist contractors with information on their resources, capabilities and geographical coverage. This means that we can facilitate the quickest and most effective response for any incident and, of course, by employing local specialist contractors can control the costs. This network is activated on a daily basis and handles over 900 projects per year!
24/7 environmental support
As a valued customer of OAMPS Petrochemical you have access to our exclusive 24 hour environmental helpline staffed by qualified consultants who are able to offer sound practical environmental advice when you need it the most. The newest addition to our suite of services for the Petrochemical industry is 24-7 Response. As the name suggests 24-7 Response provides specialist advice over the telephone, 24 hours a day, on how to handle emergency situations involving spillages and hazardous goods. Our Incident Advisors are all chemists, they understand supply and transport legislation and are experienced in providing authoritative and calm advice to those dealing with emergencies. At the time of the call they will ask the caller questions to build up a picture of the situation, then use their expertise, product information (e.g. Safety Data Sheets) and other sources to give guidance to the caller on the best actions to take to reduce the risk to people, the environment and property.
