Critical Safety Review: Spill Containment

Spills happen! Hazmat spills can be devastating in terms of cost, employee safety, and environmental impact - so it’s important to take the best measures possible to hopefully avoid and ultimately control any potential spill. One of the most effective and easy-to-use tools that can counteract the risk of a spill is a containment platform unit. The concept is simple but powerful in terms of protection, and it is widely used in factories, plants, and warehouses today. Here are four reasons why.

  1. As 2021 progresses the new Presidential administration will be exponentially more focused on environmental protection. Recent legislation about hazmat potential spill fines in North Dakota and Texas remind us now more than ever that spill containment preparation is imperative. All this means that preparing for spills isn’t only smart, it’s necessary for Federal law compliance including the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 40 CFR., as well as The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 29 CFR. Does your facility have more than 42,000 gallons of underground storage? Or more than 1,320 gallons of above-ground storage? If so, regulations state you must have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) plan. And even if your numbers aren’t quite that high, it’s still clearly smart to have a plan in case of a spill. Containment platform units are an essential tool to have on hand to provide added protection against spills and help reduce the necessity of performing spill cleanup and containment procedures. 

  1. For many hazardous materials, even a small leak or drip can pose a serious threat to employees health and safety - and they’re not always easy to notice and catch in time. Spill containment platform units form a key line of defense against undetected leaks and spills and allow your workers to handle any spill  with confidence. A spill containment platform unit is able to withstand heavy loads, quickly contain liquids before they begin to spread, and protect workers from harmful substances such as toxic chemicals. By investing in a spill containment platform unit you can protect your workers from the dangers of hazardous liquids.
