Don’t Let a Chemical Spill Catch You Off GuardChoosing the correct PIG Spill Kit will help you achieve fast and effective spill cleanup and prevent costly damage to stock and the environment. Your choice of PIG Spill Kit should be dependent on the liquids that are likely to be spilled at your facility. If you are involved in the manufacture, distribution, use and storage of chemicals, a HazMat spill kit which absorbs acids, caustics, other oil- and water-based liquids and unknown liquids will make sure you are prepared for any chemical spills that may occur. The best advantage of being prepared is reducing costly slip and fall accidents and preventing expensive environmental damage.

As well as having the correct type of PIG Spill Kit when dealing with chemicals, it is important to make sure that your PIG HazMat Spill Kit is always packed with enough spill absorbents to contain and clean up dangerous chemical spills. Monitoring of spill kit supplies is an important and critical step in your spill prevention plan. Checking and inspecting your PIG HazMat Spill Kit on a regular basis will make sure that you are always prepared for any emergency spill response situation. So, how can you ensure inspection becomes a priority? Find out below.

Delegate responsibility for checking and inspecting HazMat spill kits

The first step towards making sure your PIG HazMat Spill Kits are always prepared for chemical spills at your facility is delegating responsibility to an employee or employees for checking the contents and ordering replenishment stock. This could be a spill responder or the health and safety manager. It is important that everyone knows who is responsible so workers can be safe in the knowledge that spill absorbents are available in case of a chemical spill. A plan and a process for recording PIG HazMat Spill Kit inspections should be drawn up so that when a chemical spill happens at your facility your employees know they have the right amount of spill absorbents to deal with the amount of liquid. Otherwise, you may not realise that you don’t have enough absorbents to deal with a spill until it actually happens, resulting in dangerous accidents and possible environmental damage. With routine checks you can make sure your facility is prepared and you can act fast to prevent dangerous chemical spills from spreading.
