Spill response plans: when to contain and how to absorb

Absorbent products are great for stopping a spill in its tracks. On the other hand, spill containment products are perfect for preventing spills from getting out of hand. Items that are prone to spills include barrels, drums, and leaky machinery.

Absorbent products

Absorbent products are used to absorb spills of various liquids, including water, oils, and chemicals. These products are easy to use and can simply be placed on top of minor spills.

Why you need both

You need to ensure the spill kit specific to your business, whether acid, chemical, or oil, contains everything you may need for spill containment. Contained spills allow responders the time to investigate and decide on the best way to tackle clean-up, which may include absorbing, vacuuming, pumping, or neutralising.

Spills can result in complications if preparation and planning are not in place. Having various options available and ensuring that anyone who needs to respond to a spill is professionally trained can make a significant difference in operational downtime and safe working conditions.
