Oil spill clean upThere are various methods to contain and resolve a hazardous liquid spill. The approach is dependent on the affected environment and the type of liquid. For example, a petroleum spill on land is different from an oil spill in the sea. One of the several differences between these two kinds of spill is the materials used to clean and contain the spill.

Spill Response Team

An emergency response team that has knowledge in dealing with hazardous liquid spills are the right people for the job. There could be different professionals on the team that are assigned to do certain tasks. For example, some people could be assigned to stop the leakage from the source of where the hazardous liquid is coming from. Other members of the team would know how to dispose of the materials used in absorbing the dangerous liquid properly.

Environmental Control Products

Overall, there is one aspect that most approaches would have used in cleaning and containing a spill. Most approaches would have used a spill control kit that contains various sorbents that are suitable for a specific type of spill. Most spill kits are compact and convenient, and they are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. They may contain instruction cards, protective gear, waste disposal bags and more.   

Effective Spill Response

In responding to a spill, it is highly recommended for companies to have staff who are trained to respond to a spill. There are various techniques to train employees on how to deal with a spill. The first step in responding to a spill is to prepare the cleaning materials on site. Next, a team should assess the spill site to know how much material should be used. Tasks should be allocated to the different members of the emergency response team.

After preparing all materials and getting a signal to start the clean up, the team should wear protective gear. Once the team gets to the spill site, they should properly create a barrier around the spill using sorbent materials. Gathering the liquid through sorbent materials is an effective method of safely containing a spill.

As for the last step, most response teams will create an assessment report on the actions they did in cleaning up the spill so that they would know what to improve on the next time a spill would occur. Having a knowledgeable response team and using a spill kit can ensure that a spill is safely cleaned and contained.
