How To Use A Spill Kit

Selecting a Spill Kit may not be the most exciting process; HOWEVER, not having the right kit on hand can cost you money and time. Below is a quick primer on how to choose the right spill kit. With so many kits to choose from, do you know which spill kit specifically matches your needs? Respond to this simple checklist to obtain a kit that meets your needs. Ascertaining the optimum fit really is simple and fast. Answer the next short set of questions and you should be able to hone in on the selection of one or two spill kits that will be appropriate for your circumstances. 

1. What fluid are you soaking up?

The initial action in selecting the correct spill kit is to first clarify what type of fluid is going to be contained. At this point, you can match the absorbent to the fluid you want to contain and remediate. Knowing the appropriate sorbent for the fluid is critical. There are diverse types of sorbents that have atypical properties and it is vital for execution and safety to determine the chemical composition of the fluid you are containing.  

Sorbent choice for your spill kits:

  • Universal designation on a spill kit denotes that the absorbents inside are universal sorbents. These universal absorbents are all purpose, used just about anywhere and for almost all spills.
  • Oil Only designation on a spill kits indicates that the sorbets contained inside are oil-only absorbents. Oil-only absorbents are intended for petroleum and hydrocarbon-based liquids. Oil-only sorbents will wick up the oil without absorbing water. 

2. What is the maximum quantity of the possible spill? 

Step two in configuring your spill kit is ascertaining the biggest quantity of fluid that needs to be contained. By far, tanks and drums are biggest spill and leak offenders. Deducing the capacity of tank or drum will assist you in determining how big of a spill kit you must use. Spills can be as minute as a drop or as sizeable as a tank containing 500 gallons.  Everything above the 500 gallons mark has to be in a spill containment device. Keeping a small spill kit nearby is advisable as well.

3. Check your workspace, what kind of kits will fit?

What kind of environment are you dealing with? Are you in a factory setting where machines are stationary, or are you in a warehouse where things are constantly on the move? What if you need a more mobile spill kit that you can put in a vehicle and takes up little space? Performing a site survey will help you in your decision making process. Spill kits come in many shapes and sizes, finding one that fits your exact needs is possible. 

Handy take-aways:

  • Keeps your kits and your fluids near each other 
  • Machines leak on occasion, keep a kit in the vicinity
  • Spills do not stand still, trucks and trailers need spill kits on board
  • Always replace your used sorbents after a spill 

 4. Do you need PPE, Personal Protective Equipment? 

Employees that are tasked to deal with spills need protection. Depending on the type of spill, your employee will need gloves, goggles, protective suits and possibly respirators. Keeping your employees safe during spill clean ups is the first line of spill defense. An injured employee can be more costly than a spill fine. Having trusted equipment in a spill kit is of utmost importance. Depending on what chemicals might be introduced during a spill, your kit should contain all the PPE necessary for the safety of your personnel performing the clean up.

Compliant with 29 CFR 1910.120(j)(1) and 29 CFR 910.1450(e).33 CFR 154.1047(c)(2), 49 CFR 173.3(c)(1), 40 CFR 263.30(a), 40 CFR 112.7(c)(1)


 

STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan

A Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is basically an erosion, sediment and waste chemical control plan. It is up to the permit holder to decide what types of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to use at a given site, but the company/municipality/contractor must comply with the permit requirement. SWPPPs will typically include:

  • Site description with a map.
  • A description of the sediment, erosion and polluted water controls used on-site, including stabilization and structural practices (such as seeding, and catch basin inserts like the Ultra-DrainGuard or Ultra-GrateGuard).
  • Descriptions of the BMPs to control stormwater runoff after completion of a construction activity or as a part of a long term maintenance plan.

What are the Permit Requirements?

Permit holders are required to develop, implement and enforce a stormwater management program to:

  • Reduce the discharge of pollutants to the maximum extent practicable (MEP).
  • Protect water quality.
  • Satisfy the appropriate water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act.
  • Submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) which includes BMPs to be used, measurable goals, frequency of actions and responsible persons.

What are Baseline BMPs?

  • Good Housekeeping: reduce spill potential, routine inspections.
  • Preventive Maintenance: maintain pipes, pumps, drum/tank storage and stormwater devices.
  • Visual Inspections: signs of obvious stormwater contamination in outdoor storage and processing areas.
  • Spill Prevention and Response: spill containment of drums and tanks, spill clean-up procedures, easily accessible spill response products.
  • Sediment and Erosion Control: control methods for high erosion areas due to topography activities or other factors.
  • Runoff Management: flow diversion, filtering using catch basin inserts, use of sumps, berms, mitigative techniques such as vacuuming, use of sorbents.

What are Advanced BMPs?

  • Vegetated filter strips
  • Detention basins and ponds
  • Catch basin filters (disposable)
  • Passive skimmers
  • Litter removal devices
  • Silt fences
  • Drain inlet inserts
  • Permanent catch basin inserts

AGRICULTURAL AND FARM FUEL CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS

 

Farm fuel containment is part of EPA standard regulations. If your farm is a tier one or a tier two, and you can self certify, there are many products needed to be compliant. AIRE Industrial has long been a frontrunner in the design and development of spill containment products  and now with the new requirements being levied on the farm and agriculture industry AIRE is once again there to assist. Understanding all the options available and the process of developing your Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure plan (SPCC plan) can be tedious and time consuming.

 So for this task let's start with 2 very basic questions to help begin the process:

  • Is my total hazardous liquid in excess of 1,320 gallons?
  • Do I need to have mobile or fixed containment?

AIRE Industrial can assist you with the second option by providing state of the art mobile and fixed spill containment. Purchase containment berms, spill kits, and many other required fuel control and containment products directly from our site. Set up is simple and fuel containment systems can be functioning within minutes of arrival. Our products meet and exceed EPA requirements for the SPCC ruling. Fulfilling your requirements has never been so easy.
