Customisable spill kits provide safe solutions for sticky situations

Enpac LLC is an American manufacturer that was founded on one simple principle: “protecting the environment from hazardous chemicals by providing customers with high quality, affordable containment solutions.”

From the moment a spill occurs, there is a race against the clock. Every moment lost, increases the risk of a lasting adverse effects on the health of the workers and the environment, which is why it is important for site managers to be prepared with an inventory of spill bunding kits on site.

For mine site managers, one of the greatest threats is an oil or chemical spill occurring when there is nobody around to see it, or worse, no way to contain it.

“It’s imperative to have a storage and containment system in place on site,” says Steve Keown, National Product Manager for Liquids, Oils, Solvents, and Adhesives at BSC. “If there is a spill when nobody is present, it can leak into the soil, a storm water drain, or run off into a creek or surrounding environment. The aim is to prevent the spill from getting away. A leak can cause significant damage and the clean-up costs are huge. The losses are tremendous all around.”

BSC’s relationship with Enpac has evolved over the last four years from proving spill bunding to fully customisable spill kits for customers.

“We sell lubricants and solvents to customers and Enpac works nicely with that because they supply spill bunding and equipment and containment units where lubricants and solvents can be kept,” says Steve. “Whether it be decanting or a pump or hose, we can provide risk management and contingency solutions. It’s a nice added value for our customers.”

Enpac offers a range of more than 50 different pre-assembled spill bunding kits, “customisable for the particular type of chemical, oil, or coolant being contained,” explains Steve. To simplify the options, he separates spill bunding kits into three main solution offerings.
