Silverback’s Spill Control System includes:

01 Site Environmental Risk Assessment

Effective Spill Control requires careful planning and preparation, as well as the use of appropriate equipment and procedures. Individuals and organisations can help protect the environment and ensure their staff's and related communities' safety by taking proactive steps to prevent and manage spills.

Site  Assessment: Silverback’s field staff have been trained to review your site to identify risks and help you implement a best practice system for environmental and personal safety. During a site assessment, the Silverback team will check your emergency spill preparedness, stormwater management and emergency procedures to prepare a report outlining risks and cost-effective solutions to suit your business and optimise compliance.

Risk Assessment Report: This is a written assessment of site findings with recommendations to ensure your business complies with environmental regulations.

Having the correct spill equipment available, with staff training and a maintenance program in place, will ensure your team can effectively respond to any incidents and avoid financial ramifications, while minimising the adverse outcomes of a spill on your company’s reputation.

Chemical spills are workplace safety and environmental protection issues; therefore, a spill incident could cause fines by both EPA and SafeWork.

A chemical spill in the workplace harms the environment and workers. Workplace injuries can lead to medical and rehabilitation costs and corporate fines. Environmental pollution can also result in expensive remediation costs and penalties. In all cases, prevention is the best outcome.

A relevant spill kit is the best measure to protect people and the environment.

All states in Australia have regulations and codes of practice that determine environmental and safety obligations for businesses.

Having spill control equipment available guarantees the safety of employees when dealing with accidental spills. It is also considered a legal obligation and a reliable measure to protect individuals and the surrounding environment.

As a business manager, you have a legal and moral obligation to protect personnel and the environment, keeping the workplace free from hazards. Dangers include slippery floors and exposure to toxic chemicals.

Failure to clean up spills may result in fines being imposed and possible imprisonment.

Ensure you can address any spills that occur with appropriate equipment. A spill kit and related accessories are the most common spill response equipment tool.
