In one week’s time, experts from the HazMat, remediation, emergency response and environmental consultant sectors will descend upon the third annual Sites and Spills Conference in Toronto.

The Sites and Spills event planning team has been busy putting the final touches on two days of informative and thought-provoking workshops, roundtables and presentations that will be the heart of the February 19-20, 2014 experience at the International Centre.  

“We’re really happy to be getting down to the wire for this year’s Sites and Spills Conference,” says Guy Crittenden, editor of HazMatmag.com. “We have a really great selection of workshops that come straight out of the newspaper headlines, from the ongoing cleanup at Lac-Mégantic, to the challenges overcome during the Calgary flood, and so much more that can be applied to help make people more adept at their own industry jobs,” he adds.

In between workshops, conference delegates will have the opportunity to peruse the tabletop format trade show, where some of the newest industry technologies and techniques will be on display from vendors right across Canada. Of course, this is also prime networking time to meet familiar faces, and some new ones, to help take a step forward in your particular industry.

The 2014 Sites and Spills Conference team is also pleased to announce the addition of two free one-hour certification workshops on Emergency Response Assistance Plans (ERAPs) and workplace safety.

Presented by Quantum Murray LP, an industry leader in full-service decommissioning, environmental contracts, waste management and emergency response, the workshops offer savings of $230 per person, and are free with admission to the Sites and Spills tradeshow on February 19 and 20, 2014.

At the International Centre in Toronto, Quantum Murray LP is offering a workshop on the Ontario Ministry of Labour’s (MOL’s) Prevention Starts Here campaign. The campaign started in fall 2012, and requires all Ontario workers to receive information specific to the MOL program.

This program explains the rights and responsibilities of workers and tells them what Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) expects from the employer, supervisor and themselves. These items must be understood to ensure workers can be safe at work day in and out.

Four steps are covered in the program:

  1. Getting on board
  2. Getting in the know
  3. Getting involved
  4. Getting more help

Participants will receive a wallet card upon successful completion of the workshop. A wall certificate will be mailed out to each participant. 

Visit the Quantum Murray booth for registration – space is limited

The workshop is free to those attending the Spills and Expo tradeshow.

Cost savings of $115 per person. 

Prevention Workshops – February 19:  9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Emergency Response Assistance Plans (ERAPs)/E2 Plans for Dummies

When is an ERAP Plan Required?

Transport Canada’s ERAPs are required by the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) for goods identified as ERAPapble in Column 7 of Schedule 1. The plans are intended to assist emergency responders by providing them with technical experts and specialized equipment at an accident scene.

When is an E2 plan required? 

Under E2 regulations, anyone storing or using a listed substance above the specified thresholds, or who has a container or a number of containers with a capacity for that substance in excess of the specified quantity, will have to notify Environment Canada of the place where the substance is held, along with the maximum expected quantity and the size of the largest container for that substance. If both the above criteria are exceeded, the individual is required to prepare and implement an environmental emergency plan and notify Environment Canada accordingly.

Quantum Murray has a longstanding relationship with government agencies, and has assisted many of its clients in meeting and exceeding regulatory requirements. 

Join our Professional Consulting Team at the Hands on Training Booth. This workshop will provide you with assistance in determining whether or not you are meeting Transport Canada and Environment Canada requirements. 

ERAP Workshops – February 19: 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., February 20: 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Visit the Quantum Murray booth for registration – space is limited

The workshop is free to those attending the Spills and Expo tradeshow

Cost savings of $115 per person.
