Spill Containment Pallets Creates A Safe Environment For All Spill Containment Pallets Creates A Safe Environment For All August 19 Patrik Berglund Blues Jersey , 2013 | Author: Andrea Davidson | Posted in Education Chemicals will leak from the containers they are delivered and stored in. That is a fact of commercial chemical handling life and there is nothing to prevent it. The only thing that can be done is make sure those leaks do not become the spills that require massive, non production action. That is the reason spill containment pallets were thought of and put into use in most chemical handling areas.
The spill that can happen if and when that leaks gets to the floor will set in motion procedures that have been mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency and, in some cases, others. The work involved will be complex, intrusive and very costly even for a small spill. No production can continue until this is done and reports to the authorities will have to be submitted dealing with many things.
As a spill happens, an alarm will be raised. The production or processing line shuts down and everyone is removed from the area. They are sent to idle or assist on other lines, if possible. The barriers to keep other people out of the space are erected and nothing else can be happening in this space until the regulations are completed.
The crew that makes up the hazardous material team will then be called in. They will be gowned properly to help protect them from this substance.
