In order for your site to remain a safe environment for everyone, you need to be confident that spill response has been integrated throughout. By knowing that your employees can respond to spills in a fast and effective way, you gain the reassurance that wellbeing is a priority and safety regulations are being adhered to at all times.
Free site surveys
Spill response can be a difficult thing to achieve, which is why we recommend booking a free site survey. This involves a spill management specialist visiting your premises to undertake an in-depth examination of all working areas, which is completely free of charge. Following the survey, you will receive a written report that highlights any noncompliance in your fluid management systems and actions that need to be taken.
A free site survey is particularly relevant if your business is striving to either achieve or retain ISO14001 or a similar EMS accreditation, making it a lasting investment that will keep your company compliant with best practice and current regulations. Failing to equip your workforce with the expertise and tools to prevent and manage spills can result in accidents, downtime and damage to the environment, so putting a little time aside for a free site survey will bring exceptional results and complete peace of mind.
Protecting people and the planet
During your site survey, the assessor will also pinpoint impacts to people and the environment in the event of a spill. By knowing the potential damage that can be caused, you gain expert insight into exactly why appropriate preventative measures and spill management need to be factored into your health, safety and environmental strategy.
Spill response kits
Designed for a speedy response to a variety of scenarios, spill response kits are essential to busy working environments of all shapes and sizes. These pre-packed kits contain everything you need to deal with a specific type of spill, including chemicals, oils, maintenance fluids and even body fluids, each available in a range of capacities to suit the volume of the spill and therefore minimising wastage.
By customising spill response kits to your precise working arrangements, you can rest assured that all staff have access to the right materials in the event of a spill. As part of your free site survey, the assessor will make recommendations on the best response kits to invest in and where they should be placed for maximised spill management.
One of the most effective actions that can come from a free site survey is the installation of spill centres. Designed for tackling smaller spills, these can be freestanding or wall-mounted, giving staff immediate access to the exact absorbents and accessories required for the types of fluids that are used on-site.
Spill response training
Whilst having the right tools in place is imperative, spill response training will mean that all staff know precisely how to respond to a spill in the safest and most effective way. The Basic Spill Kit Response Training course accommodates up to 12 operatives and takes around 50 minutes, making it very easy to fit into your rota. Its three objectives are:
- To provide operatives with the knowledge of how to safely use spill products.
- To highlight the importance of having a simple and effective response action plan.
- To stress the importance of preventing spillage escape and environmental damage.
If your employees already know the basics of spill response, ask us about our more advanced training course.
