Hazardous Materials Spill Reporting

General Requirements
When an accidental release of a hazardous substance, hazardous waste, oil, or “objectionable substance” occurs, and is in excess of the “reportable quantity”, a number of regulatory agencies must be notified. EHS will notify the regulatory agencies, but EHS must be notified immediately if such a spill occurs. Release into any element of the environment, i.e., air, water, soil, sewage systems, must be reported.
