SupAbsorb Mats Help You Control Large Petroleum Spills

Large petroleum spills at your company can become a massive mess in more ways than one. You can limit the damage and get your people back to work faster if you have our Rail Road Track Oil Absorbent Mats

What Problems May I Face If There’s a Large Petroleum Spill? 

Depending on what’s spilled, the petroleum product may be flammable and produce toxic fumes, especially if a large amount spills in a small area. The problem could be life or death for your business and employees. 

There’s also concern about environmental damage if the material soaks into the ground or enters storm drains. If you don’t contain the situation correctly and your state environmental agency gets involved, you may face thousands of dollars in fines.  

The time it takes to clean up a spill reduces your productivity as those who should be accomplishing other tasks need to stop to clean up the area. Your employees could also be harmed by fumes or injured by slipping on the liquid and falling onto the floor.
