(a) Each onshore and offshore terminal shall develop and implement oil spill prevention training for supervisory, operations, maintenance, management, and indirect operations personnel identified pursuant to subsection (c) of this section. Training shall be designed to promote job competency and environmental awareness for the purpose of preventing oil spills. Non-English-speaking personnel subject to the terminal's training requirements shall be trained in a manner that allows comprehensionby such personnel.
(b) Oil spill prevention training programs must be approved by the Division.
(c) The terminal operator shall identify, in writing, the specific position titles which the terminal has identified to be subject to its oil spill prevention training requirements. In making this determination, the terminal shall evaluate the functions of terminal personnel positions using the definitions of “Supervisory,” “Operations,” “Maintenance,” “Management,” and “Indirect Operations” as defined in section 2541. For cases where certain job titles associated with maintenance and indirect operations can not be identified in advance, the terminal operator shall identify the types of job orders or work sites which may involve the need for maintenance or indirect operations oil spill prevention training.
(d) The terminal operator shall identify, in writing, the specific initial classroom and on-the-job oil spill prevention training requirements for each position, including minimum hours, that are appropriate for each position given the terminal's training needs and human factor risks.
(e) Requirements for training of operations and supervisory personnel shall focus on building personnel competency in operating procedures and spill prevention systems specific to the terminal. Oil spill prevention training requirements shall incorporate, at a minimum, the following training topics:
(1) Overview of all oil handling, transfer, storage, and monitoring/leak detection operations at the terminal;
(2) Operating procedures and checklists specific to trainee's job function;
(3) Problem assessment including recognition of human factor risks and how they can be minimized;
(4) Awareness of preventative maintenance procedures;
(5) Awareness of local environmental sensitivity and oil spill impacts;
(6) Major components of the terminal's operations manual;
(7) Major components of the terminal's oil spill contingency plan including notification procedures for oil spills;
(8) Decision-making for abnormal operating events and emergencies, including emergency spill prevention and safe shut down conditions, responsibilities and procedures;
(9) Routine and emergency communications procedures;
(10) Overview of applicable oil spill prevention and response laws and regulations; and

(3) Recognition of human factor risks and how they can be minimized;
(4) Awareness of local environmental sensitivity and oil spill impacts;
(5) Major components of the terminal's operations manual;
(6) Major components of the terminal's oil spill contingency plan including notification procedures for oil spills and incident command systems;
(7) Decision-making for abnormal operating events and emergencies, including emergency spill prevention and safe shut down conditions, responsibilities and procedures;
(8) Overview of applicable oil spill prevention and response laws and regulations; and
(9) Drug and alcohol use awareness.
(g) Requirements for initial oil spill prevention training of maintenance or indirect operations personnel shall incorporate, at a minimum, the following training topics:
(1) Overview of equipment, operations and hazards at specific maintenance and indirect operations work site(s) within the facility;
(2) Awareness of local environmental sensitivity and oil spill impacts;
(3) Notification procedures for oil spills; and
(4) For terminal employees, drug and alcohol use awareness.
(h) Training topics identified in subsections (e) to (g) of this section do not prescribe fixed subject titles for class outlines or training organization. Terminals may combine or integrate these topics, as appropriate, but must ensure that information on each topic is presented in the applicable personnel training program.
(i) The terminal operator shall identify, in writing, the specific oil spill prevention continuing education requirements for each affected position, including minimum hours, that are appropriate given the terminal's training needs and human factor risks. Ongoing training shall occur at least annually and, at a minimum, address:
(1) Any changes in the topics identified in subsections (e) to (g) of this section.
(2) Refresher awareness training on environmental sensitivity and oil spill impacts;
(3) Review and analysis of oil spills which have occurred during the past year;
(4) Refresher training on oil spill prevention procedures; and
(5) For supervisory, operations, and management personnel, a practice exercise of the terminal's procedures for preventing a spill during a particular abnormal operations event.
(j) Terminal operators are encouraged to combine existing training programs required under federal Process Safety Management requirements (29 CFR 1910), Coast Guard Persons in charge requirements (33 CFR 154.710), and other federal and state training requirements in order to meet the above oil spill prevention training requirements.
(k) Existing personnel that have entered their current positions prior to these regulations becoming effective can be regarded as having met the terminal's initial oil spill prevention training requirements if the terminal operator has documented that those personnel have received the required training in initial oil spill prevention within the previous five years. Existing personnel shall be recertified at least once every three years in accordance with subsection (g) of section 2545.
( l) Terminal operators shall develop follow up remedial training for personnel clearly responsible for causing an oil spill while functioning in their position, unless such personnel no longer occupy a position identified under subsection (c).
(m) Contractors hired by the terminal operator to perform supervisory, operations, maintenance, management, or indirect operations functions, as identified by the terminal under subsection (c) of this section, are considered “personnel” for the purposes of these regulations, and shall be subject to the same oil spill prevention training requirements as terminal employees. The terminal operator is responsible to validate that such contractors have met the terminal's oil spill prevention training requirements before they perform a supervisory, operations, maintenance, management, or indirect operations function.
(n) Terminal operators shall develop minimum training and experience qualifications for trainers who will demonstrate terminal specific procedures, equipment use, supervise practice sessions, and provide other on-the-job training to new personnel.
