Beneficial effects of a good spill prevention control and countermeasure (SPCC) plan, beyond the obvious reduction in spill hazard, are discussed. A good spill prevention plan includes many fundamental good management practices. Cleaner, more attractive facilities, accurate inventories, and safer working conditions are some of the improvements that may go along as part of a good spill prevention program. Specific examples are drawn from experiences in SPCC planning for a variety of facilities such as home heating oil distributors, truck stop operations, and large manufacturing facilities. Facilities required to have an SPCC plan have more to gain than mere compliance with federal regulations when they put their plan into effect. With a good spill prevention plan, the facility will operate more effectively and more profitably.
