Placing Drive Over Bunding
Preparation is the key to controlling spills in the workplace. It is too late to correct a problem once a liquid has already entered a drain. A great first step in protecting yourself from spills is to conduct a risk assessment of your location. Some other options include:
- Figuring out where liquid products are stored, handled, and moved.
- Locating the drain that is closest to the area and noting the slope of the land
- Rearranging the workflow on the site to reduce risk if necessary (such as moving the storage area to the low point);
- Figuring out where to drive over bunding should be installed. Any spill that might occur there should be contained in a space that is sufficiently large.
- Determining the drive over bunding’s boundaries and laying it out.
What Else is Needed With Drive Over Bunding?
The purpose of drive-over bunding is to contain a spill in a particular location. It is essential to clean up a spill as soon as possible after it occurs. Chemical spills are frequently fire hazards, and a single ignition source can transform a spill into a fire hazard. Workers are toxic to other chemicals. Cleaning up spills quickly is critical to protecting workers from harm because any delay could have long-term health effects.
You can use spill kits with your drive-over bunds to prepare for any situation. Floor sweeps, absorbent pads, and waste containment bags are included in spill kits for easy disposal.
Different chemical spills call for different kinds of absorbent materials. Some are made of chemicals, while others are made of hydrocarbons. Therefore, it is essential to select spill kit absorbents that meet your specific requirements. PPE and waste disposal bags for the collected waste are also included in spill kits.
