Oil and chemical spills can cause enduring damage to our water, air, land, and wildlife, ultimately causing problems for the local population. If your company is involved in a chemical, fuel, oil, or other hazardous material spill, it’s your responsibility to work with professional emergency response companies to offer fast, efficient emergency cleanup.
EnviroServe has years of experience responding to oil and chemical spills, pipeline emergencies, maritime spills, natural disasters, and other emergencies. We are able to deploy our skilled and certified emergency cleanup teams to rapidly contain the spill and immediately begin remediation.
Why Partner with Oil Spill Cleanup Companies?
Hazardous materials are in constant transit along highways, railways, and waterways in the U.S. With so much movement happening, spills are almost inevitable. This makes it imperative for companies that handle these materials to have a prevention and HAZMAT emergency response plan in place.
Managing spills is not something you can do on your own. You need a partner that is knowledgeable and OSHA-trained on all the current local, state, and federal guidelines for emergency cleanups and is committed to always following those established protocols.
EnviroServe requires its HAZMAT emergency response crews to undergo extensive training before working on oil or chemical spill cleanups. They must participate in continuous training so they remain up-to-date on updated regulations and best practices. As an emergency response company, our team is properly trained in hazardous waste disposal and environmental remediation and will be your trusted emergency cleanup partner.
Our Emergency Response Cleanup Process
Whether performing a chemical spill cleanup following a natural disaster or managing in-plant releases, EnviroServe always prioritizes safety, compliance, and efficiency.
When we begin our emergency response, these are the steps we typically follow:
- Identify spilled or leaking substance
- Assess immediate threats to the environment or human health
- Contain contamination or spill
- Perform spill cleanup of oil, chemicals, or hazardous materials
- Transport container(s) to a secure area
- Dispose of hazardous and non-hazardous waste
- Separate damaged and/or contaminated items
- Document before, during, and after the project with photos
- Complete documentation and provide reports with photos and any supporting documentation
These are some of the most common emergency cleanups we respond to and work on.
Fuel & Oil Spill Cleanup
We carefully and quickly control and contain fuel spills and take care of cleanup, whether the oil spill occurs on land or water. Quick action with a trusted emergency response company helps protect your business from legal penalties and decreases the risk of employee injury or environmental damage.
After identifying the material’s contents, we quickly secure the container and the surrounding area to limit threats to human health and the environment. The container is then moved to a secure area.
Natural Disaster Response
Natural disasters can often cause chemical or other hazardous spills that require immediate attention and careful coordination. Our emergency response teams are always ready to mobilize and perform emergency cleanups following hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters.
Unknown Substance Response
When an unknown substance spills, identifying the substance is the first priority. EnviroServe’s HAZMAT emergency response team has extensive experience accurately classifying unknown substances. Once we identify the type of spill, we begin the containment, cleanup, transportation, and disposal processes.
