Legislation on oil storage and new guidelines from the Environment Agency put the responsibility for handling and storage of liquids firmly with the organisation handling them.
Aquasentry's expert professionals carry out site surveys, which will assess the risk of spillage, prevention and control across your site.
The site is inspected to identify liquids, how they are stored and used, where they are stored and used, where spillage is occurring or likely to occur and what hazards these spillages present to your company, its workforce, and the environment.
Assessments include the evaluation of:
- Site drainage
- The types of liquid on site
- Bulk liquid storage and secondary containment
- Drummed liquid storage and secondary containment
- Liquid loading, unloading and transportation procedures
- Liquid spillage in process
- Waste liquid handling
- Training of operatives
Recommendations will be made in a written report on management practices, condition of the fixed storage and bunding, spillage control equipment and spillage response training. Offering solutions as well as observations the report is often helpful in the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard process.
