Why Use Spill Decks
If your operations involve the constant handling and distribution of liquids or corrosive materials, spill decks are an essential part of adhering to environmental standards as well as OSHA/OH&S and more. Spill decks catch and securely store spills and leaks that may leach from drums, and prevent them from damaging your workspace or harming employees. All spills are safely contained in the spill deck until you have the chance to deal with them accordingly, giving you, and your crew, plenty of peace of mind. There are multiple benefits to using spill decks, including:
1. Safe Clean Up
Because spill decks consolidate and contain chemical leakage, spills, and overflow, clean-up is much easier to facilitate overall. With removable grating and other features making it simple to remove and safely dispose of waste, keeping a clean site can be faster, and more hassle-free than ever!
2. Cohesive Workspace
The majority of spill decks can be interlocked to create a bundled work floor that protects your whole work space from spills and leaks. This is fantastic both from a remediation and operations standpoint as it minimizes the damage caused by spilt chemicals over time. Decks can easily be custom fit to your space and can be fixed with screws to prevent shifting. With extreme durability and performance on your side, even the heaviest job sites can enjoy increased safety.
3. Reduce (Cross) Contamination
Contamination and cross-contamination are some of the biggest issues facing worksites that handle dangerous materials. Being able to easily contain the spill drastically reduces the risk of chemicals spreading or mixing and creating noxious fumes. Intermixed chemicals pose a significant risk to everyone’s safety and can cause violent reactions like fires, explosions, etc.
4. Stop Corrosion
Corrosion is a pervasive problem and can be hard to prevent without the right tools in place. By preventing cross-contamination and contact with machinery etc, spill decks help to stall corrosion in its tracks and keep your equipment and worksite in the best condition possible.
