Why Are Experts Required For Emergency Chemical Spills?

If a chemical spillage occurs, it’s of the upmost important that an emergency spill response team is swiftly notified in order to minimise the potential damage. After all, chemicals don’t just pose a risk and danger to those performing the clearance, but they could also cause disastrous damage to the environment and any nearby property. However, the BKP Group emergency response team are able to react to any chemical spillage right away, using their skills, experience, specialist tools and vehicles to stop its effects, clear it and take it away for safe disposal.

It’s also important to note that chemical wastes are very diverse and as such their risks are equally diverse, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for chemical waste disposal. Each chemical or solution/compound must be disposed of in the manner best suited to the chemical in question. Some Chemicals are flammable, some are corrosive, some are self-reactive, and some may have chronic health hazards to both health and the environment. In some emergency situations, on-site staff will be equipped to handle minor spillages. However, there are occasions where the staff members on-site are unable to safely or appropriately respond to the chemical waste.

For example, if a large quantity of flammable liquid has been slipped and there are live power lines nearby, this presents a serious issue which will need to be handled with the upmost care by specifically trained waste technicians. It’s very important that you do not downplay the severity of emergency spills. Whilst in some situations, emergency spillages, such as a chemical spill can be handled by members of staff, it’s important to recognise the severity and the challenges involved in chemical spillage cleanup. It is much better to be overly cautious and safe when responding to an emergency chemical spill than to be hasty and potentially risk lives.

What About Non-Emergency Chemical Services?

  • On summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum; or
  • On conviction on indictment, to a fine or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years, or to both.”
