Every year in the UK there are thousands of spillage incidents

These can lead to environmental pollution, health and safety risks for your staff or the wider public, business disruption, accreditation being revoked and heavy fines.

24/7 Response

HazResponse is our 24/7 emergency response service. The service is designed
to minimise the impact of incidents such as fuel leaks in vehicles, chemical
spill and contamination, product and paint spills, water or land contamination and other emergency incidents - no matter what the time of day. The service offers:

  • Advice
  • Incident Control
  • Clean Up



Our Incident Advisors will provide guidance over the phone on practical measures to minimise the impact of a spillage. This will allow a speedy decision to be made regarding any further actions that might be required. This could simply be immediate on-site containment or the need for additional support.

If deemed necessary, an Onsite Incident Controller can be mobilised from the nearest response depot. Timescales for arrival will be confirmed based on location but we aim to be at the scene within 4 hours. The Incident Controller will liaise with regulators and emergency services to determine the most appropriate response strategy for the situation.

Our UKSpill accredited response teams will physically contain and recover spilled materials in the most efficient and effective manner. At all times our teams will ensure full compliance with environmental and safety regulatory requirements.
