While we seem to be moving faster and faster towards electrifying our transportation, the gas station – for the time being, at least – is still a necessary part of our lives. The vast majority of us require our dose of hydrocarbon to keep moving, to drop the kids off or to make it to work. But these stations are imperfect, as they always have been, mostly due to human error.
The extraction of oil on a grand scale has long been a dangerous affair, but extracting it from underneath the ocean floor has pushed it in to new territory. Oil spilt on land is difficult to clean up, but manages to stay relatively well-contained, at least for long enough for remediation efforts to be brought to bear. In deep water, it is a different story.
Spill kits for Melbourne can be applied across a wide range of different substances, but some are far more common than others. Engine oils, for example, are highly common, given their ubiquitous use and commonality in workplaces. Others, like mercury, are less common. An even less common substance was spilled on Melbourne’s WestGate freeway, back in March.
Spills kits in Melbourne are vital for a wide variety of reasons. They aid us in preventing environmental problems, they keep our workplace safe from contamination and slip hazards. But occasionally, a spill can provide more danger than we might realise. One such example occurred at Melbourne Airport in 2016.
