Making The Transportation Of Fuel, Oil, And Chemicals Safer

Nowadays, employees work all over the place – not just in one single building. While many workers still reside in a single garage, workshop, or office location, others travel the country transporting essential tools and goods all over America. While workplace safety standards are certainly important for those in a building, it’s imperative that there are also policies in place for those who transport dangerous materials – such as fuel, oil, and chemicals.

Those who operate the big rigs carrying these materials sometimes fall under the radar. It’s easy to overlook the safety of an employee who you don’t see often. However, these drivers are a valuable part of your team and, as such, must be prepared for emergencies, the same as your on-site workers.

Most transportation employees do their jobs in trains, trucks, tankers or pipelines. While each of these methods have their own pros and cons, one thing is the same across the board – all of them, in an emergency, have the potential to accidentally release oil, chemical, or fuel spills into the environment.

With this in mind, there are two major safety steps any company that transports these goods must take.

1. Make Time To Properly Train Your Workers.

Don’t skip out on educating your employees on how to properly handle a spill situation. Accidents can happen, even to the most experienced of staff members., Because of this, it’s always important to train your workers so that they know how to control a bad situation. This skill may even come in handy if local authorities near a potential spill or accident are not properly equipped to handle the situation themselves.

2. Equip Your Workers With The Proper Equipment.

Depending on what your employee is hauling, proper equipment can mean anything from a comprehensive response plan to a simple spill kit; most rudimentary spill kits will include some type of absorbent product, a sturdy broom or shovel, and contractor bags. However, a more comprehensive package could include hazmat suits, safety gloves, and goggles. Ultimately, no matter what they’re hauling, all transportation employees should have the equipment necessary to efficiently clean any sized oil, chemical, and fuel spill in the event of an emergency.

After deciding what your business needs in a spill kit, the rest comes down to making the purchase decisions. There are a lot of options out there, but we recommend including SpillFix products in any spill kit; made from coconut husks, SpillFix offers a renewable resource-based cleaning product that promises not to cause any damage during a cleanup in an emergency or after it’s disposed. SpillFix also works far better than the average clay-based absorbent, absorbing any spilled liquid to actually stopping liquid in its path down an incline.

With the right training and the right tools, your company’s employees can be the first responders to the scene of an accident – and could even potentially keep that accident from becoming even bigger. Don’t wait: make sure that safety training, lists, and spill kits are as up to date as possible today for all of your employees, on- and off-site.

How To Help The “Accident Prone” Worker

If you look back over your record keeping, is there someone in your business who’s always reporting injuries? With evidence such as this, you may start thinking this particular employee is just “accident prone” and nothing can be done to help them. Before jumping to conclusions on this issue, we suggest taking a good look at the work environment where your employee spends their day. There could be an important safety factor at play causing all of their accidents.

When addressing employees with multiple workplace accidents, take the time to examine these two points:

  • Task Factors – Sometimes an employee’s workspace or original job training is the culprit behind repeat accidents. To see if this is the case, read over both the job description and the training manual again to see if there is anything that might sound like it could lead to multiple accidents. We also suggest examining the work station for dangerous layouts or injury prone areas. Checking the climate, lighting, and risk exposure of the area is essential as well.

  • Organizational Factors – Ensuring that employees understand your business’ proper safety guidelines and have adequate access to safety equipment is paramount in reducing recurrent injuries. To help make sure this is the case, you should consider if you’re presenting  safety information in an easy to understand format during training experiences. You should also consider if the trainings are appropriate for the task your employee is performing. Finally, be sure to  regularly check that any  provided safety equipment (such as absorbent products, safety goggles, and work gloves) is in good condition.

In addition to taking internal steps to evaluate and address task and organizational factors, it’s important to take the time to sit down with your employee and get their side of the story. We recommend breaking this process down into two key steps:

 

  • Observe The Situation – Take the time out of your day to sit with your employee while they work. By putting yourself in their shoes, you can experience the work environment yourself. Can you properly see the work station in front of them? What is the condition of the safety equipment that your employee is using? All of this can be examined by watching your worker perform their tasks.
  • Listen To Concerns – It’s important not to dismiss the concerns of your employees. If they are coming to you with something they think is impacting their safety, be ready to listen and take notes. Rather than brushing off their notions, work together to discover how you can improve their work environment or make safety trainings more understandable.

In the end, the “accident prone” employee who always seems to be injuring himself at work could have a deeper underlying problem. By actively observing and listening to their concerns, you may be able to uncover a safety issue as the base of their behavior.

 

How Do You Save With SpillFix?

When it comes to your business, you always want to make sure you’re getting the highest quality for the lowest price. But, in terms of worker safety, it’s important to spare no expense. What if we told you there was a way to keep your employees as safe as possible while also helping your business  save money in the long run?

Although SpillFix’s upfront price may be a bit higher than a traditional clay absorbent, the long term savings of the natural absorbent product outweighs the initial cost. Through increased worker productivity, a safer working environment, and an easier disposal method, SpillFix ultimately saves time and money by offering a high ROI to any business that uses it.

SpillFix Cleans Spills Faster

Think about all the combined time your workers put in when cleaning up a spill in the workplace. SpillFix will take up to 85% less time to clean up a spill compared to clay based absorbents – meaning less downtime and fewer wasted man-hours.

SpillFix Uses Less Product

If a worker uses a clay absorbent, they normally end up using a high quantity of product to completely clean a spill. With SpillFix, nearly 80% less product is required as compared to clay based absorbents. And due to its super absorbency, SpillFix can often be used for more than one spill.

SpillFix Protects More Workers

Because SpillFix cleans spills more efficiently than clay absorbent products, the floor is more likely to be clean and free of slippery fall hazards after workers clean the spill. When the floor is kept safe for workers, business owners spend less money on worker compensation.

SpillFix Creates Less Waste

SpillFix has an environmental life cycle that’s second to none. It creates less waste and is landfill safe, resulting in a lower disposal cost with no environmental impact (of course, you would always want to check your local landfill requirements to avoid any local legal repercussions).

As stated earlier, as a business owner, it’s important to protect your bottom line. However, you never want to cut costs at the expense of worker safety. That is why we created SpillFix, a product that will continuously allow you to save money without compromising the safety of your workers.

SpillFix: A Spill Absorbent for Every Industry And Trade

Although it’s something we all try to avoid, workplace spills happen to everyone in every industry. Because of this common occurrence, it’s important to keep a spill absorbent product on hand no matter where you work. Our suggestion? Rather than research thousands of industry-specific absorbent products that may or may not work, take the time to invest in SpillFix.

Not only is SpillFix an efficient clean-up product – it’s an all natural absorbent product made from an organic renewable resource: coconut husk. Between it’s excellent clean-up track record and its green properties, it makes a perfect addition to spill kits in a range of industries. Think we’re kidding? Here are 4 industries and trades where SpillFix could really make a difference during your work day.

Manufacturing

In the manufacturing industry, workers handle large parts and machinery regularly. As time goes on, some of the older pieces of equipment could leak substances such as industrial lubricants. Because of this hazard, workers in this industry should always stay vigilant and be prepared to handle workplace spills when working around pieces of machinery. To accomplish this, we recommend that manufacturing staff members go through regular training courses and instruction – as provided by OSHA and company managers – on how to use their spill kits and other office clean-up tools.

Mechanic

For mechanics, the garage is one of the messiest places to be. This trade has a high probability of oil and fuel spills by nature. When employees work with vehicles and carry large buckets of liquid, one accident could lead to a big mess. Proper spill kit maintenance and absorbent product usage is especially important for mechanics – without these tools, entire businesses can quickly go under due to fines and other expenses following a poorly handled spill.

Restaurant

Restaurants, especially in the fast food industry, deal with spills regularly. From everyday water spills to fryer cooking oil, dangerous work spill hazards are always a possibility. However, when restaurants keep SpillFix on hand, they can rest assured knowing that their spill kit’s main tool can quickly absorb many different types of spills and will leave kitchen floors safe for workers.

Paint

Here’s one great place for absorbent products that people probably don’t think of often – the painting industry. When you take the time to consider it, paint spills are pretty commonplace for interior and exterior painters alike. The slick properties of wet paint make cleaning up spills hard to handle for a rag. Worse, paint is designed to stick to whatever it’s applied to; once it’s been spilled, it can be hard to clean it back up. But with SpillFix, spilled paint becomes trapped inside the hollow structure of the absorbent product, making cleaning paint spills quick, efficient and easy for painters. This not only saves the painters time, but ensures that their final job looks perfect upon completion.

At SpillFix, we strive to be the go-to spill absorbent product for every business. So the next time you think to yourself, “SpillFix doesn’t belong in my industry,” we hope you remember these bits of information and give us a try.

 

8 Workplace Safety Tips for the Holidays

‘Tis the season for twinkling lights and sparkling trimmings. Chances are that your coworkers, staff or even managers will soon want to get into the spirit and will begin setting decorations up around the worksite. But as joyful as the holidays are, there’s no excuse for disregarding safety guidelines during this wonderful time of the year. In fact, by following basic safety rules, you are more likely to make it through the holidays without any major disasters at work. So to help ensure that your holiday cheer and decor doesn’t create a seasonal work disaster, we’ve put together eight things we think you should give extra attention to when setting your company up for the holidays.

  1. Keep temporary workers informed: Thousands of temporary workers are hired across the country during the holidays. Before these workers can officially join your team, they need to be briefed on safety. Always make sure your temporary staff is aware of all the business’ safety guidelines and feels comfortable discussing safety issues with management.

  2. Inspect your lights: It isn’t truly the holidays until a string of lights have been set up. But before you hang them, it’s important to always thoroughly inspect your lights and make sure their wiring isn’t frayed or broken. If you hang lights indoors, use proper hooks instead of nails or screws to lessen the chance of electrocution. If you hang lights outdoors, only use strands specifically made for outside weather.
  3. Follow manufacturer guidelines:  When putting up decorations, always read any instructions on their packaging carefully. These will give you important tips on how to properly and safely use the product.
  4. Turn off electronics: Before you clock out for the day this season, turn off and unplug any lights and other electronic decorations at work. Not only will this keep your electric bill down, but it’ll also reduce the chance of electronic overheating or even an electrical fire causing a problem overnight when no one is there to handle it
  5. Don’t block exits: Be aware of the emergency exits in your building as you’re decorating. Never block them with large displays. Always have a clear route outside in case of emergency.
  6. Water your trees: On average, emergency personnel respond to 210 tree related structure fires per year. Keeping trees properly hydrated and removing loose needles can help prevent fires in your business.
  7. Keep decorations away from heat sources: If you regularly use candles, portable heaters, or fireplaces in your business, keep holiday decorations away from those areas to lower the possibility of fires.
  8. Clean spills quickly: When oil or other fuel sources are spilled near electrical decorations, it creates a dangerous fire hazard. Be sure to clean these up quickly and efficiently with a spill absorbent product.

Always remember, it’s okay to have a bit of fun during the holidays and decorate your business. Just be sure to follow these simple safety tips to keep everyone safe and happy.

Can You SpillFix That Spill?

Hopefully, by now you know that SpillFix is a great, all-natural spill absorbent product made from renewable resources. Most people know that you can use SpillFix to clean fuel spills and oil spills. But did you know that you can also use the very same SpillFix product that can tackle grimy oil and fuel spills to clean other industrial messes like paint, cooking oil, and even battery acid?

We designed SpillFix specifically to handle a range of spills and clean-up situations because we understand just how many different accidents may require an emergency cleanup. For example, a lot of business keep paint cans in their garages. This is a common occurrence since many offices need to repaint their walls often in order to keep them looking professional. The garage is normally a good place for them because it is cool, dry, and out of the way of regular business practices. However, previously opened and used paint cans are likely to spill, and if the matter isn’t addressed quickly you could find yourself with an oddly stained floor. Additionally, the odor that spilled paint gives off can be harmful to the respiratory system. Fortunately, SpillFix’s coconut husk base absorbs the spill and makes for a safe and easy clean-up. SpillFix can also clean out the inside of the cans so they can be reused as a storage containers.  065a94d

Businesses with storage garages aren’t the only ones who can benefit from SpillFix. Large, industrial kitchens have a lot going on every day. When cooking oil spills on the floor, it creates a dangerous, slick surface for workers. And in an area filled with hot stoves, hot fryers, and numerous hard corners and surfaces, slipping on said spills can cause nasty work injuries. The good news is that SpillFix can be used clean up these mishaps quickly and efficiently. The absorbent product quickly stops the spread and cleans any residue that remains, completely eliminating any chance of a slip or fall.

Finally, one of the most dangerous types of spills that workers encounter is battery acid. This is a risk that car garages and other industrial sites must be prepared for, as batteries can corrode and leak if they become too old or if they are not taken care of properly. Leaking battery acid causes serious problems in the industrial service due to its corrosive nature. Don’t worry, though: SpillFix can handle a corrosive battery acid leak. This means that when a worker proceeds with this absorbent product during the acid clean up, they can clear the dangerous substance without ever needing to get too close to the spill before it’s neutralized.

SpillFix’s versatility is exactly what makes it such a useful product for a range of industries and operations. Even if you are not in the car business, there are still many opportunities that warrant the use of a safe, all natural spill absorbent. You should SpillFix it!

When Should I Use SpillFix Absorbent Product?

Whenever we talk about an absorbent product, we should always think of that absorbent product as a tool. Like any other tool, when it comes to cleaning up spills at work often times one type of absorbent product will do a better job than another. And as with any other type of tool, different absorbent products will work better on different spills than another type of absorbent product might. Not only that, but the type of absorbent product you use will impact your company’s effectiveness, overall safety, and performance.

SpillFix is just one kind of absorbent product that you may decide to use to clean up fuel spills, chemical spills, or a range of other types of spills. But when exactly should you use SpillFix? And when should it be supplemented with other products? Today we’ll answer those questions so you can ensure that you’re using the best absorbent product for every incident you may come across while at work.

What exactly is SpillFix?

pasted image 1000x625

SpillFix Industrial Absorbent is a type of organic, nontoxic absorbent that’s made from a renewable resource (coconut husks). SpillFix is currently available in a loose form (pictured below) and in boom form.

When should I use loose SpillFix absorbent product?

Loose absorbent products are used to clean up the majority of liquid spills at work, and are particularly helpful when you need to clean up a spill that’s leaked into cracks, crevices, and other small spaces that a larger, solid absorbent product can’t reach. While some types of loose absorbent products have earned a bad reputation for containing dangerous crystalline silica and for being dusty, difficult to sweep or shovel and generally cumbersome to use, SpillFix removes dust from the equation and, as demonstrations show, is quick and easy to pick up and dispose of.

When should I use SpillFix booms?

If you have a large liquid spill that needs to be simultaneously contained and absorbed, a boom will help you get the job done. Commonly recognized as a containment tool for water-based oil spills, booms are also very effective to use on spills that happen at your place of work – both indoors and outdoors. SpillFix booms are especially useful since no spill can be cleaned before it’s been properly contained, meaning that in the event of a spill a boom is a necessity.

What other absorbent products do I need to supplement my SpillFix products?

Mats, socks, and pillows are all different types of absorbent products that you should stock up on at your worksite to have in case you need them. Just like loose absorbent product items and booms, these different items help workers address spills in different ways:

  • Mats, which will soak up leaks and spills, can help protect work areas or be used during an assembly or other routine work process; they’re also typically very useful in smaller spaces such as aisles and can help reduce the risk of slipping when walking in and out of entranceways. Be sure to consider whether or not you want a roll of mats or pre-cut mats, as well as how absorbent or chemically resistant your mats are.
  • Socks, a sister product of booms, can effectively contain spills and prevent them from leaking from one area into another. Socks lock off spills and keep them from spreading throughout an area. Standard socks are smaller than booms and effectively wrap around machinery, and can help prevent larger spills by absorbing leaks under or around your work equipment. Socks are great small-scale tools to use when you don’t have a full-blown spill on your hands.
  • Absorbent pillows, while often not our first absorbent product of choice, still have their place in a spill clean-up arsenal thanks to their ability to absorb more spill than the average mat. Pillows are great for catching localized drips or leaks and even for absorbing large spills.

As you can see, every worksite needs different spill products to address different spill-related needs. Assessing your workplace and deciding which products which address your safety needs is critical in determining which products to purchase to keep your worksite safe at all times.

3 Ways SpillFix Absorbent Product Will Save Your Business Money

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: switching to SpillFix is the best decision a company can make. Why? Because when it comes to absorbent products, nothing cleans a spill quite like SpillFix – and nothing saves you money quite like SpillFix, either.

Having the right tools to deal with oil spills, fuel spills, chemical spills, and even acid spills makes a big difference, in many ways. Not only do the right tools make the cleanup process much quicker and safer, but the right tools also make the process more affordable overall – and SpillFix certainly meets all of these criteria:

  • SpillFix is safer to use for your workers (and your equipment!). With SpillFix there is no post clean-up mess to handle as with heavy sticky clay or absorbent pads. And because SpillFix is a leak-free product, it reduces the chances of your workers being injured by or slipping on the material that’s being cleaned up. SpillFix is also dust free, which minimizes any side effects your workers may feel from using it. Not only that, but this trait makes SpillFix safer to use around workplace equipment. That’s worker comp time and equipment repairs or replacement funding that stays in your pocket, all thanks to a switch in your absorbent product lineup!
  • SpillFix is a multi-purpose cleaning tool. If you work around multiple types of spillable liquids you may currently buy more than one absorbent product. But why buy multiple cleaning products for your worksite if just one could do the trick? SpillFix can absorb a range of liquid spills, and as a result will work on fuel spills, acid spills, oil spills, and more (although certain heavy-duty chemicals or acids will still require special cleaning tools).
  • You need less SpillFix to clean. With SpillFix, you need almost 80% less product to absorb a spill as compared to clay based absorbents. Plus, due to its super absorbency, SpillFix can often be used for more than one spill. SpillFix will also take up to 85% less time to clean up a spill compared with clay based absorbents. Take these three points and combine them, and you have a product that will save you time and man-hours!
  • SpillFix can help cut disposal costs. Most absorbent products have to go through certain disposal channels; SpillFix Industrial Organic Absorbent, however, has been tested to the USEPA Leachate standards for landfill disposal. Thought you should always confer with local authorities regarding proper disposal, SpillFix ultimately creates less waste and is landfill safe, providing lower disposal cost with no environmental impact.

Ultimately these four points combine to form a money-saving formula. Here’s just one example of how SpillFix can save a working company money:

With SpillFix in your spill-emergency response kit, you can be confident that you are using the most cost-effective spill cleanup solution for a healthy and safe workplace. With the ability to clean up a spill immediately you provide for a safe workplace sooner.

Q&A: Oil Spills In The Workplace

When the average person hears the words “oil spill” they often think about major oil spills that affected communities or major sections of water or mainlands. But for American industrial workers and a range of other professionals, “oil spill” can also refer to a smaller oil spill or leak at their place of work.

 Oil spills qualify as one of the most common workplace spills thanks to oil’s popularity. Forklifts, trucks, industrial equipment, and workplace vehicles are just a few examples of things on the job that require oil for proper use. With this popularity comes a range of common questions about oil, oil spills and how to deal with them. Today we want to address and answer three of those common questions:

 

Why are oil spills in the workplace such a big deal?

News outlets often highlight how oil spills harm oceans and other natural areas after a spill but rarely talk about the dangers of oil spills at work. While oil isn’t considered as toxic as some chemicals, it can still be a serious risk to people.

  • Oil creates a slick surface that can cause serious falls and injuries.
  • Oil is a highly flammable substance that can ignite under the right circumstances, especially if it begins to vaporize.
  • Longer or repeated exposure to oil vapors can affect a person’s ability to smell and taste. High levels of exposure can also cause headaches, nausea, and lightheadedness, as well as lead to poor coordination, increased blood pressure and difficulty concentrating.
  • Oil that touches the skin can cause painful reactions such as itchiness, redness, pain, blisters, and peeling.
  • Other chemicals in the oil vapor can potentially increase an individual’s risk of developing certain cancers and may even affect several organ systems.
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has summarized the risks from oil spills as such: “Oil spill cleanup workers can face potential hazards from oil byproducts, dispersants, detergents and degreasers.”

 

How can companies prepare for oil spill clean-up?

Ask any safety expert about how to address a spill at work and they’ll most likely tell you to do two things – to proactively try to prevent spills, and to protect yourself and your workers first should they happen. Not only do safety experts agree that this is the best approach – it’s the law. According to the safetyandhealthmagazine.com, “Creating and implementing a spill prevention control and countermeasure plan is required by the Environmental Protection Agency to prevent the discharge of oil and spills. An SPCC plan should identify proactive measures to prevent a spill from occurring or reaching the environment. In addition to meeting EPA regulations, an SPCC plan can help prevent slips, trips and falls from occurring within your work environment.” 

This means that the first thing a company needs to do is develop a proactive preventative approach, complete with a prevention, control and countermeasure plan. Historically too many businesses that worked near oil assumed that they’d never deal with a spill. Businesses working under this mindset often found – and still find – themselves dealing with serious oil spills and paying the costs of employee injuries, environmental damages and more when they happen. Rather than assuming a spill won’t happen, businesses should work to prevent them and prepare for when they do happen. This means:

  • Situating and storing oil drums and containers safely – and ideally in a Secondary Containment System.
  • Developing a proper spill prevention plan that helps contain oil spills at their source thereby helping cut down on possible fines and reduce the chances of employees tripping or slipping.
  • Providing and stocking enough of the correct response equipment – including spill kits, spill containment items, absorbent products and other spill response tools –  at your worksite so you can address every possible situation as it happens.

The second thing a company needs to do is ensure that it protects its employees. Sometimes spills happen despite the best and most thorough preventative measures. Should this happen it’s not enough to have a spill prevention plan developed. Workers need to know what to do: how to respond and to keep themselves safe. This means that all employees should receive safety and spill clean-up training on a regular basis.  Proper training will ensure that spills are promptly cleaned and little to no injuries occur as a result of them.

 

I’ve cleaned up the oil spill at my workplace – the danger’s passed, right?

Not necessarily. Depending on the type of absorbent product you used to clean up that oil spill you’ll need to consider your disposal options very carefully to avoid polluting your local dump and even community. Many absorbent product options don’t hold on to absorbed substances for long, which can cause oil leaks and spills later on after the product has been disposed of. EPA guidelines require absorbent products, rags and other materials be properly disposed of separately from main trash bins. Fortunately there are decent absorbent product options like SpillFix available today that will ensure that a cleaned oil spill remains clean – and will help save you time and money during the cleanup process itself! Always check local laws before disposing of used absorbent product and cleaning materials after an oil spill.

SpillFix - Less product, less waste!

Oil spills aren’t to be taken lightly and require proper preparation on a company’s behalf. Fortunately following these basic safety steps will ensure that no one is hurt and your company can continue operating on a normal schedule, and there are lots of resources available today to help companies develop a proper spill prevention plan and strategy.

The 4 Big Reasons You Should Switch From Your Absorbent Product To SpillFix

Chances are that if your company keeps an absorbent product stocked up on site, no one has given their absorbent product of choice a second thought in some time, opting instead to continue using the same one they always have. But if you haven’t changed your absorbent product in a year or so, now is the perfect time to ask yourself: are there better products out there that will do their job and also save me money? We’re happy to tell you: Yes, there are!

Products like SpillFix provide great, cost-effective alternatives to other popular absorbent products currently available on the market. Now you’re probably asking, why exactly should I even consider SpillFix? What makes it so special? The answer is that there are four big reasons to consider SpillFix above any other absorbent product:

  • SpillFix is a green and environmentally friendly absorbent product. We went all the way in our efforts to make SpillFix as green and environmentally safe as we could. For starters, we make SpillFix from a renewable resource: coconut husks. To cut down on any negative effects caused by transportation, we then built our production factories right next to the coconut farms that fuel our product. SpillFix then goes another extra mile or two by not only absorbing more spilled liquids than its clay counterparts, but absorbing them so well that they won’t leak back into the environment once they’re cleaned up. The final result? An eco-friendly, super effective absorbent product.
  • SpillFix is safer for your workers to use. Using SpillFix could save you time, money and hassle down the line related to worker health issues. How? Because SpillFix is made from coconut husks instead of clay, it’s more absorbent and less dusty than its clay counterparts. As a result, workers are less likely to slip on leaked spill residue during the clean-up process; they’re also less likely to develop health problems related to the silica dust that clay absorbent products contain.
  • SpillFix is a multi-purpose spill cleaning tool. Why buy multiple cleaning products for your worksite if just one could do the trick? SpillFix can absorb a range of liquid spills, and as a result will work on fuel spills, acid spills, oil spills, and more. This flexibility is why SpillFix will help your company save time, save space, and…
  • SpillFix will save your company money. SpillFix is so cost effective that it’s guaranteed to save you money. But how much money, exactly, will SpillFix leave in your company’s overhead? We did the math to find out how much money SpillFix could help the average plant save, and it turns out…SpillFix could save the average American plant $9,600 a year on absorbent product, shipping costs, and disposal costs combined.
