Legislative pressure amps up environmental responsibility for onsite spills

Whether your business lies in the mining or manufacturing sector, environmentally responsible storage and disposal of hydrocarbons and other forms of potential pollutant has become an essential part of ground level operations.

Today there is a great deal of legislative pressure from government and regulatory bodies to ensure companies remain focussed on their environmental responsibilities, so connecting with the kind of services and products that allow those objectives to be met cheaply and efficiently is absolutely essential.

Liquid spills can become a costly in terms of time and capital, as well as the potential safety hazards and environmental risk, so it’s important to utilise drum storage that is well-designed, functional, easy to transport, and cost effective.

In order to properly assess the risk to business presented by spill incidents, there are a few important points to consider.

User safety is always the primary design feature in modern industry. Whether the materials or chemicals are being transported in steel or plastic drums, or some other form of containment, it must be safe for the user.

Liquid spills are also a hazard for slips trips and falls, and an environmental risk, so ensuring effective spill and leakage protection goes a long way to preventing the kind of financial exposure that can arise from unwanted liquid incidents.
