Rule 3745-52-262 | Copies of contingency plan - preparedness, prevention, and emergency procedures for large quantity generators.


A copy of the contingency plan and all revisions to the contingency plan shall be maintained at the large quantity generator. Additional requirements include the following:

(A) The large quantity generator shall submit a copy of the contingency plan and all revisions to all local emergency responders (i.e., police departments, fire departments, hospitals, and state and local emergency response teams that may be called upon to provide emergency services). This document may also be submitted to the local emergency planning committee, as appropriate.

(B) A large quantity generator that first becomes subject to these provisions after the first effective date of this rule or a large quantity generator that is otherwise amending the generator's contingency plan shall at that time submit a quick reference guide of the contingency plan to the local emergency responders identified at paragraph (A) of this rule or, as appropriate, the local emergency planning committee. The quick reference guide shall include all of the following elements:

(1) The types or names of hazardous wastes in layman's terms and the associated hazard associated with each hazardous waste present at any one time (e.g., toxic paint wastes, spent ignitable solvent, corrosive acid).

(2) The estimated maximum amount of each hazardous waste that may be present at any one time.

(3) The identification of any hazardous wastes where exposure would require unique or special treatment by medical or hospital staff.

(4) A map of the facility showing where hazardous wastes are generated, accumulated, and treated and routes for accessing these wastes.

(5) A street map of the facility in relation to surrounding businesses, schools, and residential areas to understand how best to get to the facility and how best to evacuate citizens and workers.

(6) The locations of water supply (e.g., fire hydrant and the flow rate).

(7) The identification of on-site notification systems (e.g., a fire alarm that rings off-site, smoke alarms).

(8) The name of the emergency coordinator and seven days a week, twenty-four-hour emergency telephone number or, in the case of a facility where an emergency coordinator is continuously on duty, the emergency telephone number for the emergency coordinator.

(C) If necessary, generators shall update the quick reference guides, when the contingency plan is amended, and shall submit these documents to the local emergency responders identified in paragraph (A) of this rule or, as appropriate, to the local emergency planning committee.
