Many businesses, organizations, and facilities are required to have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan in place. North Texas Spill Response can help you put together a comprehensive plan of action to avoid a spill as well as provide guidance and support once a spill has occurred. Our clients include trucking companies, petroleum companies, utility companies, and rail lines. We can respond to any time of emergency fuel spill within minutes in the North Texas area.
The harsh reality is that no business is free from a potential emergency spill of hazardous material. Whether you are a truck driver who transports fuel or oil, or you operate a warehouse that stores hydraulic oil, spills can and do occur. Being prepared for a potentially hazardous material breach is key.
How do you if the spill requires a response from an environmental services company? There are three types of hazmat spills.
- A spill that’s incidental and can be easily cleaned up.
- A spill where you’re not sure if it requires professional clean up.
- And, a spill where it is clear that you’re going to need to call in the professionals.
A spill that requires an emergency response is defined by Osha as; Response efforts conducted by employees outside the immediate area of release or by other designated responders (fire departments, internal hazmat teams, etc.) to an occurrence which results, or is likely to result, in an uncontrolled release of a hazardous substance. We suggest, that rather than creating and training your own emergency response preparedness hazmat team, which is a time-consuming and costly process, that you call on us prior to needing our services.
