Hotel and Resort Spill Preparedness
For the purpose of the Area Contingency Plan, volunteers will be referred to as "uncompensated workers" or "volunteers". There should be no distinction made between an uncompensated worker, or volunteer, and a compensated worker for purposes of health and safety, however, the utilization of uncompensated workers must be approved by the Unified Command. To the greatest extent possible, uncompensated workers should have limited roles in spill response. They should not be utilized in any situation that could potentially result in the person's exposure to contaminants without specific training in accordance with the approved Site Safety Plan and the specific endorsement of the Unified Command.
