Using A Spill Barrier to Reduce Impacts From A Chemical Spill

If you’ve ever worked on a project with a high spill probability, you know the consequences it poses. If oil or some other contaminant were to spill into a water supply, ocean, river or work site, they’re not only ecological impacts but also economic, financial and publicity effects.

A spill barrier can prevent toxins and pollutants from spreading into pure sites and water sources. Unlike other spill barriers, the Spil-Stop water filled spill barrier has an innovative design that’s operated by inflating it with water. The internal baffle system stabilizes the barrier to keep it in place. A broad range of dimension availabilities allows you to customize the Spil-Stop for your specific needs.

A Spill Barrier Prevents Long-Lasting Consequences

Contaminations  

Hydrological Solutions gives you different uses for the Spil-Stop spill barrier for many industry solutions. We have an emergency spill containment kit for on-the-go jobs. It’s compact making it easy to store, quick to deploy and fast to drain. Need to contain contaminated water from entering the main water supply? Our stream block can barricade it from spreading elsewhere. A truck spilling hazardous material can be dangerous. But, with the Spil-Stop, you can contain substances until proper disposal can be made.

Economic Impacts

  • Fishing industry
  • Destroying Nature and marine life
  • Rise in prices
  • Human health

Financial Liability

Spilling incidents can produce expensive consequences. Depending on what state you’re in and who was at fault, your company could be held liable for financial responsibilities. Fines have dramatically increased in the last few years to millions of dollars for a spill incident. And, many states have created new laws that will place the financial burden on the company at fault. To ensure your company’s financial protection, use a spill barrier to prevent any harmful spills from occurring.

Bad Publicity

More is at stake than the money aspect of a spill. The damage your company endures afterward could be detrimental to your company’s public image as well. Many times, the effects are non-reversible leading to a downward spiral for your company’s success.

Executives Hold Responsibility

Executive and directors of your company are usually the ones held responsible for a chemical spill. They must be prepared to defend their company in court. This means using preventable spill measures ahead of time that will show the court you took appropriate action, should a spill occur.

When spills happen, containment is key. Don’t put your company at risk–use an effective containment device that will keep you from the damages to public image, finances, the economy, the environment and your company’s executives. Contact us today to learn more about our spill barrier solutions.
