Hazardous Spills Response & Reporting Policy

How to Use the Tool

Here’s a Spill Response and Reporting Policy that you can use to ensure that your employees report and respond to spills appropriately. This policy, which is based on BC spill reporting requirements, was created by combining the best parts of a number of different spill response and reporting policies that the Insider reviewed from organizations across Canada. Be sure to adapt it to your company’s situation and the requirements of your jurisdiction. Make sure that all staff members are trained on it.


A spill response policy will help you respond to spills appropriately and safely. The impact a spill can have on its environment can be minimized when reported and recovered properly.
