Spill Barriers

Dealing with a workplace spill or leak in an efficient manner is of paramount importance to keep workers, premises and the environment safe. The ability to contain hazardous substances in an emergency is a major part of COSHH regulations and a spill barrier is one of the quickest and most effective ways of doing so.

By placing a barrier, berm or boom around uncontained materials you will prevent them from spreading and provide valuable extra time for clearing up. Seton has a selection of options available for ensuring potentially harmful liquids don’t get out of hand. Our spill containment buying guide offers more information about barrier types and other equipment you might need to successfully deal with stray liquids.

Spill Containment

Leaks and spills of hazardous materials can have disastrous consequences. As well as the obvious health risks to those nearby, there is also the potential for substances to pollute the environment by spreading outside the confines of your business. When emergencies happen a quick response is vital to prevent this from occurring.

Your COSHH assessment will have included a plan for what to do if a dangerous situation arises. Having the correct spill response equipment is a vital part of this.

Spill Barrier Types

For larger sites, spill barriers will most likely be a required element of your emergency response measures. These are flexible to fit around spills and leaks of any size and shape preventing them from spreading out of the immediate area. By using a spill barrier as your first line of defence, you will be able to reduce panic and take time and care to clean contaminated areas thoroughly.

Boom kits can be fitted together to cover large areas and are ideal for placing around machinery or in locations where leaks are liable to happen. They can also be situated along walkways to prevent them from becoming wet and slippery.

Spill berms can be used to catch minor spills at the source or temporarily store drums and other containers that become leaky. They can be placed anywhere in a matter of moments and the foam sidewalls allow for easy roll-through access. The rigid lock spill berm works on a similar principle, but can also be scaled up to provide cover for large tanks.

First Response Spill Equipment

In order to deal with spilt liquids effectively you will also require several other items. For outdoor spills, a drain cover will provide a first line of defence preventing chemicals or oils entering drainage systems and waterways. Absorbent materials such as spill kits will be necessary for quick clean up and personal protective wear including gloves, goggles and overalls should be provided. To dispose of used cleaning materials, hazardous waste bags and bins are also available.

Finally, it’s important that containers are marked with the correct hazard classification symbols and safety data sheets must be available so anyone dealing with a spill is aware of the associated risks.
