RPS offers Capability Audits to assess the level of oil spill preparedness for companies and agencies. These gap assessments are determined through an evaluation of the following key elements:
- Oil Spill Management Framework
- Contingency Planning
- Response Arrangements
- Training and Exercise Programs
Following standard auditing procedures, RPS provides reports and recommendations in line with international and U.S. best practices. Limitations or gaps can be addressed, and opportunities for further enhancements are maximized.
On-Call Modeling and Incident Management Support
In addition to providing advice and documentation, RPS can provide on-call support from our South Kingstown, RI office for modeling and incident management establishment support. Effective planning and training for emergencies are critical to successful response execution. In turn, your organization’s response to an oil spill event may have a far-reaching impact on its local, national, and international reputation. The International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Cooperation (OPRC 1990), sets the framework for oil spill preparedness internationally. The National Oil and Hazardous Substance Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) is the United States Federal government’s standard for responding to hazardous substance and oil spills in the environment. RPS services meet all requirements for both the OPRC and the NCP.
