When a spill happens you are working against time for spill containment and spill cleanup. You implement your spill containment plan, check the impact on your employee safety, your production and the environment.
Then you make a call to your spill cleanup contractor, hoping they can arrive quickly. But freezing temperatures might create a nightmare of a problem.
That nightmare might be having your spill clean up partner arrive with a high-powered vacuum truck (like the one in the video above) except the truck can’t actually “suck up” material because it has a big piece of ice, frozen inside the inlet pipe.
And that creates all kinds of problems for your time, money and production. So if there is a moral to the story in the video, I think it would be:
- Look to partner with a spill clean up contractor that knows how to use their vacuum trucks, power washers and waterblasters in not just perfect conditions, but also in the terrible, awful worst case scenario conditions.
- Discuss worst case scenarios before you sign the spill contractor agreement
