Safeopedia explains Qualified Stormwater Practitioner (QSP)
Pollution that goes into stormwater runs into the drains, which eventually leads to out streams, rivers and oceans. Many tests have shown that the pollution in stormwater directly relates to the death and endangerment of marine life. In the construction industry, there is a lot of potential for containments to flow into the storm water. It is advised that construction companies hire a stormwater practitioner to ensure that this risk is minimized. These ones have the expertise to be able to look at a work site, recognise the dangers and create an appropriate pollution plan.
