If you want to make sure that you consider all aspects of your SWPPP certification, you need to take into account several fundamental components.
If you want to make sure that your facility is adhering to strict SWPPP certification protocols, then there are certain fundamentals that you need to make sure that your facility adheres to or else you will find that your facility is not able to keep up with the certification that is required by the local authorities in your area. Besides keeping up with the requirements by local authorities, it is definitely in your own interest, and in the interest of your business and for the people working for you, to be able to do everything that you can do to make sure that everyone is safe and that nothing gets damaged if and/or when a storm strikes. Below are the fundamentals that you have to pay attention to if you want to make sure that your facility is adhering to the SWPPP protocols in your area.
One of the basic things that you need to be able to do for your facility is to make sure that you have the right people in place to do whatever is required for you to implement the SWPPP protocols. There are different models that you can use for having the right people take care of the SWPPP that you need. First, you could hire people externally to come periodically to do the job for you. You could also hire people internally to do the job for you and finally, you could hire a mix of external professionals as well as internal custodians of the work that is required. With whichever option that you get to choose, it is critically important that you hire people that are well trained if you want to make sure that you always pass your SWPPP certification as you would expect. If you get to hire internal staff for the job, you should make sure that you provide the proper training and tools so that your people are able to do the job effectively. As for the external professionals that you hire, demanding that they are regularly trained and that they have the right tools to do the job is something that you should require of the firm that you hire to do the job for you.
One of the most important things that you can do when it comes to stormwater management is to make sure that the people that you hire thoroughly understand what is required of them. In as much as the training that they will get is meant to cover this aspect. It is important to mention that the training and understanding of SWPPP should not just cover the textbook understanding of what is required but more critically the implementation of SWPPP for your specific facility. This basically means that the people that you hire should be able to translate the rules for stormwater management in California to what your specific facility needs to pay attention to.
