Our Goal: No spilled oil

The Oil Spill Task Force is a non-profit organization comprised of representatives from environmental agencies in the Pacific coastal area. We collect and share data on oil spills, coordinate oil spill prevention projects, and promote regulatory safeguards. Our mission is to improve prevention, preparation, and response to oil spills on a state and provincial level.

Spills Aren’t Slick

The Spill Aren’t Slick campaign evolved from the simple premise that small oil spills can add up to cause significant envIronmental and economic harm. They are a regional problem that can best be remedied through collaborative projects drawing from existing talent and resources.

Harbor Safety Committees & Best Maritime Practices

The West Coast Harbor Safety Committees (HSC) develop standards of care for ports in conformance with current best industry practices. The Oil Spill Task Force also maintains the websites of Harbor Safety Committees, and co-hosts the annual Harbor Safety Summits.
