Are designed with 6061 aluminum angles spaced between 18" and 24" depending on the height of the berm. The berms offer a range of 6" to 24" sidewalls in standard lengths and sizes. Berm will fold up for compact storage and can be set up in minutes.
Passed in 1972, the objective of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, commonly referred to as the Clean Water Act (CWA), is to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nation's waters by preventing point and nonpoint pollution sources, providing assistance to publicly owned treatment works for the improvement of wastewater treatment, and maintaining the integrity of wetlands. NOTE: This act was amended in 1977 and 1987.
Can be used to dissipate oil slicks and were widely used during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. A dispersant is either a non-surface active polymer or a surface-active substance added to a suspension of particles. Dispersants can rapidly dispense large amounts of certain oil types from the sea surface by transferring it into the water column. They will cause the oil slick to break up and form water-soluble micelles that are rapidly diluted. Watch and wait method is also used. In some cases the best way to fight an oil spill is to rely on Mother Nature and natural attenuation of oil and this is most effective in ecologically sensitive areas such as wetlands
an excavation activity or operation usually carried out at least partly underwater, in shallow seas or fresh water areas with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments and disposing of them at a different location. This technique is often used to keep waterways navigable.
Excess fabric welded to bottom of the berm that protects from wind uplift. The skirt can be staked down through the grommets on the edge of the skirt. If the surface is impenetrable, place sandbags onto the skirt to prevent uplift of the berm.
Are enclosed or non-enclosed secondary containment berms with closed cell foam, square planks as the sidewalls. The berms offer a range of 4" to 12" sidewalls and cross seals allow for easing packing and setup. Non-enclosed foam walls are inserted on site while enclosed foam walls are sealed into place during the manufacturing process.
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) set of guidelines produced and maintained by the Occupations Safety and Health Administration that regulates hazardous waste operations and emergency services conducted around inside of the United States and its territories. The auspices of this regulation are an effort for the US Government to regulate hazardous wastes and dangerous goods from the inception into society and their handling throughout the lifetime of that hazardous waste or material.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. Congress established the agency under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, which President Richard M. Nixon signed into law on December 29, 1970. OSHA's mission is to "assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance". The agency is also charged with enforcing a variety of whistleblower statutes and regulations.
corrosion-free polyethylene drums that come in sizes of 5, 30, 55 and 95 gallons. Drums are used to store PPE, materials and equipment as well as waste in the event of a spill. All drums have a lid with a lever-lock to keep items inside dry.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to protective clothing, helmets, goggles, or other garments or equipment designed to protect the wearer's body from injury. The hazards addressed by protective equipment include physical, electrical, heat, chemicals, biohazards, and airborne particulate matter. Protective equipment may be worn for job-related occupational safety and health purposes.
Employers, not employees, determine whether an injury is reportable. The employer may refer the employee to a doctor to determine if the injury is reportable to OSHA but is not required to do so. The injury must be work related. A work-related injury includes injuries or illnesses that are a direct result of the work environment of the employee. If an employee injures himself while on a break, the injury is considered work related and reportable as long as it occurred during normal working hours.
A flexible fabric barrier attached to a floating boom that prevents the spread of solid particulate (silt) in the water. Silt curtains are often used near construction zones where large amounts of silt may be disturbed.
Happens when solidifiers are composed of dry hydrophobic polymers that absorb. The cleanup of spills by changing the physical state of the spilled oil from a liquid to a semi-solidified or rubber like material that floats on water. Solidifiers have proven to be relatively non-toxic to aquatic and animal life. Some solidifiers are biodegradable and can be deposited in landfills
