Environmental Containment is the necessary act of preventing hazardous material spills or cleaning up from the same, to prevent environmental damage. Environmental products come in many shapes, styles and uses.
The best method of spill containment is to prevent environmental damage if to prevent the spill before it ever happens. For the most effective containment, Proper storage containers and cabinets should be applied. In the case of transfers, the best best is a high-quality hose. For pouring, Funnels are great use on containment drums.
However, no environmental containment is every perfect, so secondary containment is a great option. Spill Pallets, Spill deck systems, and Hard-top containment prevent environmental damage by catching anything that may spill, drip, or even prevent a complete container failure in the case of accidents.

Pre-packaged kits come with everything you need for every size and type of environmental containment failure. Absorbents are great for everyday cleanup, from dripping taps to overfilled containers.
