Do you have Emergency Generators in Texas?

Do you have Emergency Generators in Texas?

In Texas, B UST Operators can either be in-house employees, or subcontracted to a third party like TAIT. If you have questions about your system and the compliance responsibilities associated with it, that’s what we do! Contact me today and let’s see how we can help.

Training Director Andy Tait and TFFA’s Scott Fisher were instrumental in creating the A/B UST operator training course in Texas. Also pictured are Melanie Nelson who teaches the classroom training courses & Brian Liquin from TAIT’s Boise office, specializing in Architecture Engineering.

Many emergency generators have an underground or aboveground storage tank associated with them. TAIT is intimately familiar with these fueling systems and has designed, installed, removed, repaired, upgraded, maintained, tested and inspected these systems for generations. We are a third-party operator for many clients and are happy to consult with you about your current or planned systems.

Do you or your employees currently perform the inspections and maintenance on your systems?  If you an underground storage tank operator in Texas, you need to be certified. If you were certified by the deadline three years ago, it’s time for a refresher! TAIT is holding classes locally at our Dallas office, and around the state so reach out and find out when the next class is that is most convenient for you.

Classes are currently being scheduled and filled here. Call Melanie Nelson at 214-531-9377 to schedule a private classroom training session in Texas or find out when the next one is in your area. Click here to register for an existing course.

UST Training course for AB Operators in Texas

UST Operator Training in Texas, TCEQ Notifications Mailed Statewide

TCEQ’s COMPLIANCE PUSH – UST OPERATOR TRAINING

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required AB UST Operator Training be completed by August 8, 2012. TAIT traveled across the state holding training courses, and still offers courses online or in the classroom for groups of 20+. The TCEQ has recently begun to send letters to over 10,000 UST facility owners regarding their compliance with the UST Operator Training requirements. They track compliance with the training requirement through the Self-Certification process – requiring owners to list the names and training certificate number or a copy of the certificate be included with the annual filing.

We are well versed in the Texas UST regulations, and regulations for other states across the country. More than a training company, we are a licensed UST installer/remover in Texas, and across the US – when there is a difficult fueling scenario or compliance issues, TAIT is the go-to company. TAIT makes it easy to meet the training requirement:

EPA has requested the TCEQ verify the compliance rate since the TCEQ could only provide information that about half of the UST owners had proven compliance with the training requirement.

The TFFA, our training partner along with 360 training, prepared Regulatory Alert #546  so TFFA members could forward the information and the Regulatory Alert to their customers that own and operate underground storage tanks. It is likely the TCEQ will soon target enforcement against those facility owners who fail to respond to the agency’s letter.

334.603(b) – states 72 hours:Owners and operators of underground storage tank facilities (except unmanned facilities) must maintain required training certification documentation as described in §334.603(b) of this title (relating to Acceptable Operator Training and Certification Processes) on-site and must provide it upon request to a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) or TCEQ-authorized investigator. Documentation may be maintained electronically off-site if that facility has the capability of producing a clear printed copy which can be provided to a TCEQ or TCEQ-authorized investigator within 72 hours of the time of the investigation. Owners and operators of unmanned facilities must provide documentation as requested by a TCEQ investigator or TCEQ-authorized investigator.
