Storm water discharges are generated by a land-owners runoff from land, parking lots, and building rooftops during rainfall and the melting of snow. This runoff often contains pollutants in quantities that could adversely affect water quality.
As a result, most storm water discharges are considered “point sources” and require coverage by a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Construction activities on site of one acre or larger are also required to obtain authorization to discharge storm water under a NPDES construction storm water permit.
As part of NPDES permit, a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan must be developed, implemented, and maintained on the site.
Ohio Technical Services, Inc. is capable of assisting you in the completion of a review of your site, the preparation of the necessary applications for coverage under a NPDES permit, and the development of the site specific SWPP Plan.
In accordance with 29 CFR 1910.120(b)(1)(i) “Employers shall develop and implement a written safety and health program for their employees involved in hazardous waste operations. The program shall be designed to identify, evaluate, and control safety and health hazards, and provide for emergency response for hazardous waste operations.”
A Health and Safety Plan is often developed for individual projects on specific sites and addresses those hazards associated with the scope of work and specific conditions of the site.
Ohio Technical Services, Inc. is capable of assisting you in the completion of a site specific and project specific Health and Safety Plan of your site or project.
