Brady’s Spill Control Guide has offered ideas on how to prepare for potential spills and what to do in the event of a spill
Uncontrolled spills can have a devastating effect on the environment, on people and businesses in the vicinity of the spill and on the future of a company. Well-prepared companies can stop spills before they cause workplace accidents, affect the health of employees and people living nearby, damage the environment and contaminate water.
Investing in spill control tools can prevent major costs in fines, damage and pollution cleanup.
In addition to ideas on how to prepare for potential spills and what to do in the event of a spill, Brady’s guidebook also contains a number of solutions that can be used to prevent spills from spreading and removing spills.
The new eco-friendly SpillFix granular: Quickly absorb spills on uneven or porous surfaces!
SpillFix is a 100 per cent natural coconut coir product that, unlike clay-based granulars, does not release cancerous silica dust. Furthermore, SpillFix is a lightweight product with a microsponge honeycomb structure that is highly unlikely to cause straining or lower back injuries.
Thanks to its honeycomb structure, SpillFix granulars immediately start pulling liquid inside and quickly absorb any liquid.
On top of this, 2.8 kg of SpillFix can absorb the same spill volume as 22.5 kg of clay-based granular, so a lot less product is needed to achieve better results. Unlike many clay-based granulars, SpillFix does not leave any slick residue behind and can be mopped up with a few swift swipes.
With the addition of SpillFix, Brady offers a more complete range of Spill Control solutions that include both granular and meltblown polypropylene solutions.
In general, granular is cheaper to purchase and more expensive to dispose of after use. Granular is more useful for absorbing spills on cracked or porous surfaces. Meltblown polypropylene, on the other hand, can be offered in any form or size and has a wide range of proactive spill control applications.
