Workplace safety is a term that is relevant beyond the office or warehouse environment. In fact any employee in your chain of production and distribution is under your care. If your company transports products out to fuel distributors, liquid distributors or oil distributors, then the chances are that you understand this better than most.
Employees involved in the transportation of fuel, liquid, oil, or chemicals are some of the most underappreciated members in the business world. These men and women are often responsible not only for the safe transport of these valuable goods, but also for responding to an emergency in a way that both protects their own health and eliminates the risk of causing harm to the public or the environment.
Today, these employees are likely either involved in the transport of these goods by train, by truck, by oil tanker, or more often by pipeline. Each of these methods of transport have pros and cons; all of them, in an emergency, have the potential to accidentally release liquid, oil, chemical or fuel spills into the environment.
With this in mind, there are two major safety steps any company that transports these goods must take.
First, they must take responsibility to properly train their employees in responding to emergency situations, especially in case local authorities near a potential spill or accident are not properly equipped to handle the situation themselves.
Second, they must also provide their employees with the proper tools to respond to a potential emergency or spill.
These tools could include everything and anything from full Hazmat suits to a basic absorbent product, depending on the nature of what exactly is being moved. In any case, any company that moves fuel, liquid, oil, or chemicals to fuel distributors, liquid distributors, oil distributors, and other sites should always have several properly prepared spillkits on standby during transport for use in an emergency.
There are many safety groups and government offices that can help a company develop the right spillkit for their needs. After a plan has been developed it’s just a matter of the company purchasing the right absorbents in the right amounts. We recommend including SpillFix products in any spillkit; made from coconut husks, SpillFix offers a renewable resource-based cleaning product that promises not to cause any damage during a clean-up in an emergency or after it’s disposed. SpillFix also works far better than the average clay-based absorbent, absorbing any spilled liquid to actually stopping liquid in its path down an incline. Just click below to see a video demonstration:
With the right training and the right tools, your company’s employees can be the first responders to the scene of an accident – and could even potentially keep that accident from becoming even bigger. Don’t wait: make sure that your safety lists, and your spillkits, are as up to date as possible today.
“Bar-B-Que sauce is easy enough to clean up when it’s on your fingers and lips, but it’s an entirely different story when a five-gallon jug of it ruptures and flows onto a warehouse floor. SpillFix was applied to the entire disaster area – from the pallet to the cardboard, the shrink wrap and the growing puddle on the floor. In three and a half minutes, the entire mess was cleaned, and the warehouse was restored to a safe workplace again — using just one product.”

Joe K., Higher Education Sector
"SpillFix cleans the spills up on our floors better than the previous current products. However, the cleaning has to be done correctly, this is a watch-out-change for our team. In the past, we put down our current product and walked away for a few hours or a day. SpillFix should be cleaned up right away." Read case study.
