This ICP has been created to satisfy the requirements of each of the federal emergency response regulations noted above, as well as applicable state regulations. The ICP is a highly functional document, divided into three sections an introduction, the core plan elements, and a series of detailed annexes. At the end of the ICP are Regulatory Compliance and Cross-Reference Matrices that document the sections of the plan in which various federal and state regulations are satisfied. The core plan is the heart of the ICP, listing, in a user-friendly way, the steps necessary to initiate, conduct, and terminate an emergency response action. The annexes provide supporting details and instructions for implementing an emergency response under the core plan. This ICP is designed to minimize hazards to human health and the environment from fires, explosions, or any unplanned release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents to air, soil or surface water. Various discharge scenarios are considered and appropriate response detailed for each. The provisions of the ICP must be carried out immediately whenever one of these emergency events occur which could threaten human health or the environment. The ICP also covers the actions employers and employees must take to ensure employee safety in an emergency. Note that, in several sections of the ICP, requirements specific to an oil spill response are detailed.
