SaM Action Items
Action items can be as easy as educating employees about the SaM program, to incorporating best management practices to prevent storm drain pollution from your business operations, or engaging employees to paint 5 storm drains with the iconic ‘yellow fish’ symbol in their business neighbourhood.
Action items are divided into 'Core' or 'Industry-specific'. Core actions items applicable to any operation and industry-specific action items have been developed to help guide specific industry efforts toward SaM certification. See the full list of core action items and industry-specific action items.
A minimum of 3 action items must be from the core action items list. See all the certification level options to determine how many action items are needed per certification level.
