Expertise on Spills Offered in Webinars

anne News

Spill Center’s monthly webinar series on containing costs and limiting liability after spills of hazmat, diesel fuel and other regulated substances continues this fall. Tom Moses, Spill Center founder and president, will discuss a broad range of topics of value to fleets and other businesses at risk from accidental spills on the road and at fixed facilities. His guidance has helped clients avoid fines and penalties for failing to comply with environmental regulations and overpaying for emergency spill-related services.

Tom launched Spill Center more than 20 years ago to help carriers, shippers, truck leasing and rental companies, chemical companies and insurers contain costs and limit liability related to environmental spills. He received his law degree from John Marshall CSU and is a former U.S. EPA toxicologist. He is a board panel chairman at National Academies’ Transportation Research Board (HMCRP) and has broad experience in transportation, environmental regulatory compliance, crisis management and environmental claims resolution.

Demands for Reimbursement

On Sept. 27, starting at noon (EST), Tom will discuss ways to handle reimbursement requests from emergency responders and ways to avoid overpaying for those services. He will explain the legal aspects of Strict Liability surrounding environmental spills and why the spill generator is legally responsible regardless of who was at fault in the incident. Register for next Thursday’s webinar at
