Spills of toxic chemicals and oils can happen in the workplace, even with preventative measures in place. Should a spill take place, spill reporting is essential for various reasons, including preventing it from recurring.
Oil spills have a devastating effect on the environment. With large oil companies operating around the world, the risk of oil spills is greater than ever. Oil spills in the last several decades have disrupted reef ecosystems, wildlife breeding grounds and coastal environments.

With today’s technology, there are lots of options to help prevent and clean up oil spills. Here at Ecospill, we have a dedicated team to ensure our spill kits are of the highest quality and are compliant with industry regulations.
