It is that time of year again: Tier II Reporting Time. Between OSHA and EPA regulations, companies have quite a few deadlines throughout the year. SRP Safety and Environmental Consultants are here to help you keep everything organized and up-to-date.
Tier II, also known as Community Right to Know, Reports are due March 1st.
A Tier II is required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA), sections 311 and 312. Generally, if you have over 10,000 pounds of hazardous materials at any facility, you must submit a Tier II. However, there are hazardous materials that have much lower thresholds. Hazardous materials can be identified by obtaining information from a products’ Safety Data Sheet.
A Tier II Report includes information on all hazardous materials including amount stored on site, hazardous ratings, type of storage containers, etc. This information is then passed on to state and local emergency departments including first responders and the fire department, as well as emergency planning committees. This information is critical for first responders to know in the event a catastrophic event happened at your facility. Knowing what is inside a facility and how to handle the hazardous materials can save many lives within the community.
Keep in mind that Tier II Reports are mandated at the state and local levels, therefore it is best to check State Reporting Requirement and Procedures.
