The benefits of having access to sufficient high-quality environmental protection – such as spill kits or drain protection covers – ought to be largely self-explanatory, but it is also crucial to make the most of whatever environmental protection you may have to hand at your workplace. |
To gain the greatest possible value from your Spill Kits, drain protection covers or whatever other environmental protection may be available at your organisation's premises, you may wish to take note of the following advice.
Proper environmental protection should be just a step away
Even if you purchase a spill kit with the appropriate absorbency and know how to use it both quickly and with the utmost precision, it may not do much good if you cannot reach it in time when you most need it.
This is why you should ensure that any and all environmental protection is stored in a location that can be easily accessed, close to any areas in which such dangers as spills or contamination may present themselves.
Users of your facility should be made aware of the storage location of your organisation's environmental protection, not least in the form of a clear on-site display and in the employee health and safety handbook.
A small price to pay for reliable safety measures
To further supplement the above information, you may also need to provide yourself and your employees with appropriate training in the proper usage of spill kits and other environmental protection.
Although such kits come with instruction manuals, it is wise to inform yourself well in advance of what you need to do in the event of a spill or contamination, as opposed to having to process such valuable information for the first time in an emergency.
It is also worth ensuring that you have the correct size of spill kit for your needs and that you have purchased the most up-to-date environmental protection products available. If you haven’t, it is of the utmost importance that you stock up; some older products may not work as efficiently and may even increase the risk present.
