Be prepared for hazardous spills

19-08-2013
The establishment of the Environment Co-ordinator role has created many benefits for the triple bottom line over the last 15 years.
 
It has also created the conflict between where environment ends and safety begins.
 
The obvious example is a diesel spill. On a sealed walkway it is a slip hazard. On unsealed ground or near drains it is an environmental hazard and in other conditions it is a fire hazard.
 
The overriding challenge is for all stakeholders determine the course of action prior to the event through broad scope contingency planning.
 
Since 1983, Spill Station Australia has been helping all levels of Australian Industry and Government successfully meet the challenges of an ever evolving workplace.
 
This positive outcome is best achieved by understanding the relationships between health, safety and environment.
 
To assist in achieving these positive outcomes, the Spill Station Australia team of accredited auditors can visit you site and conduct a spill risk assessment to evaluate you current spill response capability and provide recommendations to minimised damage caused by spills.
 
To ensure your pathway to compliance is made even easier, Spill Station provide spill response training and offer spill equipment maintenance program to ensure you are always ready to respond.
