-          An incident report will be submitted to the SOR within two working days of the spill.

4.4                Spills during Tunnel Construction

4.4.1           A spill of during the construction of the tunnel portion of the contract is also considered to be serious, given the restricted access to the tunnel, an enclosed atmosphere that will be regulated by mechanical ventilation and general tight working conditions.  Signage will be posted to inform workers of emergency telephone numbers, the location/s of emergency shower stations, the location of spill response and firefighting equipment, and emergency evacuation routes.  In addition to signage, suitable means of communication will be needed by workers in case of a spill.

4.4.2           Should a spill take place underground during construction of the tunnel, the following steps should be taken:

i.         Immediately inform the Emergency Team of the following details of the spill incident:

-          The approximate location of the spill.

-          The type and approximate quantity of material spilled.

-          Details of what the material spilled onto, such as concrete or dirt.

-          The time of the spill.

-          Whether the spill is contained (by bunding etc.) or has reached the environment.

ii.        Take all reasonable measures to isolate, contain, reduce and/or stop the spillage, provided it is safe to do so.

iii.      Given that the spill will be in a tunnel, provided that it is safe to do so, mechanical ventilation should be maintained to prevent the buildup of a toxic and/or explosive atmosphere.

iv.      The Emergency Team Leader shall be responsible for organizing adequate resources to identify the spill source and if necessary stop or cease it.

v.        The Emergency Team Leader as the assigned person shall equip all people involved in the cleanup works with suitable PPE prior to the removal of any leaked chemical, chemical waste.

vii.     Suitable spill response equipment such as absorbent pads, dry sand or sawdust shall be used to absorb the leakage.  Any contaminated spill response equipment shall be collected after cleaning up the spill and sealed in black plastic bags and clearly labeled as "chemical waste".  All collected chemical waste shall be placed in an area designated for chemical waste storage and transported by an approved company to an approved disposal facility

viii.   An incident report will be submitted to the SOR within two working days of the spill.

4.5                Spillage Control Material

4.5.1           One spill kit will be distributed around the site at locations nearby to any storage area for chemicals /chemical waste.  Additional spill kits will also be located near to the office of the Environmental Officer and the Environmental Officer shall ensure that sufficient spill kits available on site at all times.

4.5.2           Absorbent pads and pillows of the spill kits mitigate spills by means of physical absorption.  No chemical or biological reaction would take place during whilst using the absorbent pads and pillows.  Used absorbent pads and pillows will be collected after completion of spillage removal.

4.5.3           The inventory of hazardous chemicals that will be used for this contract will be inspected periodically by the Environmental Officer and Foremen every two months.

4.5.4           At least four sets of spill kits will be provided on site in case of any emergency and the inventory of spill kits will be managed by the on shift Foremen or Emergency Team Leaderˇ¦s delegates (numbers and locations of the spill kits will be discussed in Section 7.2).  CSHK will also provide additional spill kit(s) on site when it is deemed necessary, and the total numbers of such kits would be agreed with the SOR.

4.6                Inventory of Hazardous Chemicals

4.6.1           It is anticipated that the major chemical that will be stored onsite during the construction of the contract will be lubricants and oils are also anticipated to be stored onsite for the maintenance of equipment.

4.6.2           An inventory of the hazardous chemicals that are stored onsite will be maintained and regularly updated by the contractor.  This inventory will contain details of the type of chemicals, the quantity of chemicals, the storage container (e.g. steel drum) and the location of material onsite.  All subcontractors present onsite will provide details of the chemicals that they are storing onsite.  Checks of the materials that are stored onsite by subcontractors will be made by Foreman from CSHK, together with Foremen from the subcontractors.  The inventory and check record will be made available for inspection by the SOR.

4.7                Protection of Sensitive Receptors

4.7.1           The information that is outlined within this section will become applicable if the area of a spill is estimated to be greater than 100m2.  In order to protect sensitive receviers within the vicinity of the HKLR site during a spill of greater than 100m2 the following steps will be taken:

i.         The location of the spill relative to a sensitive water receivers such as water intakes, ecological sensitive receivers and Tai Ho Wan will be determined.

ii.        Absorbent booms, or similar, will be deployed near to the receptors to protect sensitive marine receptors.

iii.      The Contractor will immediately inform the relevant parties as outlined in Section 4.2 of this SRP.

iv.      The on shift Foremen or Emergency Team Leaderˇ¦s delegates will employ all possible mitigation measures in order to isolate the spill and minimize any potential adverse effects to sensitive marine receptors.

v.        Follow the procedures that are outlined in Appendix B of this SRP.

vi.      The Contractor, SOR, ET and IEC will discuss and implement a suitable program of water sampling to monitor for any potential adverse effects to sensitive receptors.


 

5              Dolphin Contingency Plan during a Spill Response

5.1.1           It is not known what specific impacts a spill of diesel fuel, or other chemicals would have upon the Chinese White Dolphin and its food supply.  Given that these effects are unclear, a proactive approach will be used to isolate the Chinese White Dolphins from any spill response event that may take place during the course of the construction of the contract.

5.2                Initial Response

5.2.1           Observations from platform(s) as high as practicable will be used to determine the approximate size of a spill.

5.2.2           Whilst determining the size of the spill it will be determined whether any Chinese White Dolphins are present in the vicinity of the spill.

5.2.3           The weather forecast for the area will also be used to determine the likely direction of movement (if any) of the surface spill.  In addition the vessel traffic centre will be contacted to determine if any vessels may pass through the location of the spill.

5.2.4           A suitable course of action can then be decided upon once information such as the size of the spill, the proximity of any Chinese White Dolphins to the spills and the likelihood of the Chinese White Dolphins encountering the spill.

5.3                Efforts to Isolate Spill Areas from Chinese White Dolphins

5.3.1           The use of absorbent booms is an effective containment method for small spills within the marine environment and will prevent the spread of a spill and thus help to minimize the potential for Chinese White Dolphins to come into contact with the spill.  Deployment of such absorbent booms, together with teams of observers is considered to be an appropriate response to a small spill that can be cleaned up in the short term.

5.3.2           In the event of spills of a larger area, the deployment of underwater barrier nets (such as anti-shark nets) in addition to the measures outline above, could be an effective means of isolating the spill area from Chinese White Dolphins.

5.3.3           If Chinese White Dolphin(s) is/are observed within the enclosed area which contains the spill, the same protocol used in the event of injury or of live stranded cetaceans, as described in the Dolphin Watch Plan will be followed.


 

6              Health and Safety Equipment

6.1.1           The following is a list of the health and safety equipment that will be made available on site:

i.         Fire extinguishers (such as foam) which are suitable for fighting fires with flammable or combustible liquids.

ii.        Brushes, dustpans, mops and buckets.

iii.      Dry sand, sawdust or other absorbent material.

iv.      Tissue and towels (both paper and cloth).

v.        Storage containers or drums that will be suitable for the storage of including plastic bags, absorbent pads, etc.

vi.      Spill response kits.


 

7              Spill Response Plan Implementation

7.1                Training and Notification System

7.1.1           The onsite workforce will receive training from the Environmental Officer regarding the measures outlined in this SRP, during the site induction training, and the Environmental Officer shall periodically conduct Tool Box talks with the site workers regarding the SRP.  During the induction training, a demonstration of the containment methods and equipment shall be carried out by the Environmental Officer.  All site workers will be required to receive this training.
