From a few gallons of oil on your floor to massive thousands of liters, spills can either be simple or complicated. Simple spills have minimal hazards and are easy to clean up. Complicated spills require an elaborate approach. Spill containment is an approach where you prevent the escaped substance from entering the soil or water.
Spill containment solutions include:
• Spill Pallets
• Spill decks
• Spill containment berms
• Containment walls
• Spill containment products
Every commercial and industrial workplace must have a spill response policy or plan. You must have both primary and secondary spill containment. Always, the initial approach is to stop the spread through measures such as drainage sumps, non-absorbent dikes, and absorbent mats and socks. These are all primary containment measures.
Secondary containers are designed to hold the liquid before you can clean up and restore normalcy. Perfect examples include concrete walls, berms, and dikes. Absorbent materials also fall into this category.
