Spill Control Management

Spill Control – don’t ignore the risk of spillages.

Spill risks are everywhere. From leaks caused by manufacturing processes to liquids in delivery areas, accidental damage by forklift trucks, or even overfilled tanks. Did you know that a single drop of oil can make up to 25 litres of water unfit for drinking? The scale of the impact that even small accidents can have upon public health and the environment can’t be taken lightly.

At Biffa, we have extensive experience in pollution prevention and spill control procedures. We are accredited members of the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF), meaning we can provide the guidance you need to make sure your staff have the confidence and ability to safely plan and implement emergency spill control procedures and environmental protection.

Our specialised range of spill control management products and training provide effective solutions to protect against pollution and the knowledge to tackle emergency spill incidents.

Do I need to worry about spills?

Nicky Parkerpayne, Biffa’s Spill Control Manager:

"Anyone who stores more than 205 litres of liquid needs to ensure it's stored correctly and have the right products on site to keep any spills contained. If you don’t, and pollutants escape into the drains and waterways, you could face heavy fines and more serious punishments."
"A common misconception is that only hazardous chemicals cause harm, but you can’t let anything other than water run-off into drains and rivers. Many seemingly ordinary things, such as milk, have a terrible impact on aquatic life if they leak."
