Spill containment of hazardous substances

Rotational Plastics NZ Ltd are leading manufacturers of rotationally moulded plastic products who have been assisting customers with design & manufacturing solutions for over 25 years.

If the storing or transporting of hazardous substances is part of your day to day activities, then you will have a need for spill pallets, spill containment berms, IBC spill pallets, drum pallets or other secondary containment solutions.

If you are dealing with chemicals, oils, sewage or the like then you will need to consider a form of Spill containment (or different forms of, depending on what you are dealing with) at your workplace.  Accidental spills or overflow, if contained within a spill containment unit let spills be contained within a barrier or drainage system rather than being absorbed at the surface.



Absorbent spill kits have been in place in workplaces for a number of years, but spill containment is considered now to be an eco-friendlier solution. This is mainly because absorbent spill kits have a small capacity, require disposal once used and allow no recycling of the spilled fluid.

Installing spill containment measures prior to a spill can result in significant savings in the event of a spill. Wise people count the cost of possible issues prior to them happening. Instead of paying for a costly clean up, containment measures reduce the impact on the environment and the surrounding area, and may even save some of the resource. Clean up costs can be impacted by numerous factors such as location of the spill, type of oil spilled, surrounding sensitive areas, and local regulations.
