Many transport workers across Canada are aware of the possibility of an accident or turbulence that can move the products they are transporting. A liquid spill can happen quickly, and having the right equipment on hand to limit damages is essential. Here’s why.
A liquid spill can be very harmful to the environment and receive a substantial penalty. Therefore, it is important to know that serious fines will be imposed on a non-compliant carrier.
Legislation and Standards
In Canada, the LCEPA 1999 Canadian Environmental Protection Act as well as the CSAZ731-F03 (C2014) standard, which regulates national emergency preparedness and response, must be respected at all costs. Very serious fines will be distributed to carriers if they do not comply with the legislation.
Another reason for controlling spills is to protect your employees. Certain materials may be dangerous to employees’ health, and controlling a spill limits the contact of a worker with a substance.
If a spill happens during the transportation of your goods, it is possible that the loss of time associated with the incident increases considerably if you don’t have the necessary equipment to control it. Therefore, having a spill kit available during transport allows for quicker control of liquid spills and significantly increases employee productivity.
