The Metal Finishing Associations of Southern California and Northern California in concert with the DTSC and CUPA has prepared a Floor Management Guidance Document to comply with federal, state and local agency environmental regulations. The areas of concern dealt with by this Guidance Document are the floors wherever Hazardous Materials and Waste are used or stored.
Why a Floor Management Plan??
Without one you could be fined up to $37,500 a day by your CUPA for any liquid found in your secondary containment system or shop floor.
What does it do?
1. Assure environmental compliance in a timely manner.
2. Establish daily operational standards for maintaining the cleanliness of process floors in the company’s metal finishing process and storage areas.
3. Provide an organized procedure for evaluation, cleaning, and maintaining the company’s process and storage floors.
4. Implement selected best management practices to accomplish the company’s environmental goals.
5. Provide a work environment that protects worker health and safety.
6. Prevent a release of hazardous materials to the environment by reducing and/or eliminating spills in all process and storage areas. 7. Protect the company’s facilities from contamination or deterioration.
