Dr. Elliott Taylor was contracted to lead a two-day workshop on the use of RETOSTM (Readiness Evaluation Tool for oil Spills) for the assessment of national to local oil spill response programs in Canada.  Participants from federal government agencies received instruction on the background and use of the RETOS Manual, Excel Tool, and the 2008 IOSC Proposed Guidelines for OSR Readiness Assessment. Work groups identified several priority areas for development in the national program.
