§ 2542. Training Requirements.
(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 comprehension by such personnel.
(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.
(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:
(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:
(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.
(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.
