Small Oil Spill

I usually require a contractor to clean up a small oil spill like this. We will remove all of the soil on this project and dispose it as mildly contaminated; I let it go this time.

It’s always a good idea to have a bunch of portable spill kits on the job. Put one in the cab of each piece of equipment for quick response when hydraulic hoses break.

All right, so you don’t want to have to deal with petroleum contaminated soil and water; how about using spill pads under equipment?

A. Drip pans and absorbent pads shall be placed under all equipment that is unused for more than four hours, overnights, weekends, and holidays.

Secondary containment-almost, this is better. The chainsaw bar oil and gas are together; if a spill happens, it’s in one place.

The contractor placed this kiddy pool under the light plant motor and drip pan. Oil drips cause a petroleum sheen when rain water is present. The contractor will use spill pads to remove the sheen before discharging the water.
