Don’s Daily Tips Access

The placement of spill kits throughout your facility is highly recommended. Kits should be stored in or near areas where liquids are transferred, stored or used to operate vehicles or machinery. Some facilities allow for a designated area for kits, so that Don’s Daily Tips responder personnel know where to locate spill response kits in an emergency. Making the spill station more easily identifiable is key in response time. Add a sign that is visible from all angles to clearly indicate to everyone, emergency responders and non, the exact location for the spill clean-up items.

If you have a facility that stores, handles or transports chemicals and other liquids, chances are they are stored in drums or similar containers. The easiest way to prevent and contain any potential spills from these containers is to store the drums in secondary containment units. Secondary spill containment units typically come in the form of pallets or decks that have a containment unit underneath to catch the spilled fluids. Simply place the items you are storing on top the pallet or deck for safe spill prevention. Containment pallets will contain the spilled or leaked fluids, then all that is needed, is for the fluid to then be removed with a suitable absorbent (like pads).

Spill containment pallets come in a variety of sizes, both physical in size and in terms of liquid capacities. The use of pallets and decks allows you to maintain valuable floor space, while also offering safe spill containment. Pallets and decks are available in indoor or outdoor models that come with covers, to protect the drums or containers being stored from the elements and theft. Any spill pallet or spill deck worth purchasing and keeping as part of your spill response plan should be EPA or OSHA compliant.

Drums come in an array of materials, from steel to polyurethane, for safely storing or transporting hazardous materials. Depending on the type of drum chosen, these hazardous materials you store, can be shipped to a disposal facility and removed from your grounds. For shipping purposes, make sure you choose a drum that is UN and DOT approved.
