Understanding the chemicals your workplace deals with requires knowing their storage risks. Equipped with this information, you can be proactive in ensuring the safe storage of hazardous substances.
Serving as both a fuel and lubricant, the use of hydrocarbons on worksites is common practice. Apart from being highly flammable, a hydrocarbon spill can contaminate the environment, damaging plant and animal life. It can also work its way into nearby water sources through the soil if not cleaned up effectively.
There have been many improvements over the years in control technologies for marine spills. These came about after 2 of the most significant marine spills in Australian History, in 2009 (Great Barrier Reef) and 2010 (Sunshine Coast). Despite these improvements, these spills still wreak havoc on the marine environment.
Businesses have an obligation to clean up spills as per the regulations set out by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and Safe Work Australia.
Spill response is something that requires fast action. Spills don’t hang around waiting for you to nip to the shops to get something to clean them up with. So, being prepared with the correct spill kits on site is key.
It is essential that sediment runoff into our waterways is controlled to maintain aquatic ecosystems and fulfil your workplace environmental obligations. The turbidity caused by sediment runoff changes a waterway’s dynamics. And this has a negative effect on aquatic plants, fish and wildlife.
At Ecospill, we offer a range of premium silt socks to assist with erosion and sediment control. So, what exactly is a silt sock is and how it is used to help worksites adhere to their environmental duties? Read on to find out!

An important part of site work activity is to adhere to environmental compliance. Stormwater management refers to the containment of stormwater. This includes the identification and reduction of contaminants and compliant stormwater discharge.
