Trackable waste transporter pollution incident response management plan
The EPA has prepared an optional template for use by licensed transporters of trackable wastes in preparing their pollution incident response management plans. Trackable waste transporters have a different set of requirements for their PIRMPs because they fall under transport regulations. The template has been designed to simplify compliance with the new requirements.
The template cannot be used if the environment protection licence includes activities other than transportation of trackable waste.
Requirements for developing a waste transporter PIRMP
the trackable waste transporter's PIRMP must be relevant to each vehicle transporting trackable waste and the waste being transported
aspects of the plan relating to incident or emergency management must be carried in a easily accessible place within the vehicle's cabin. This includes the required documentation relating to the load being transported and communication protocols
- a complete current copy of the plan must be kept in an accessible location at the company premises
- the plan must be provided immediately on request to emergency services, the EPA, SafeWork NSW (formerly WorkCover) or the local council
- this template may be used where the plan will not form a part of another document and will be a stand-alone pollution incident response management plan.
