Still not convinced? Consider these points: OSHA considers silica a serious health hazard. Granular clean-up is difficult and labor intensive small particles can easily enter and damage machinery or your finished product. Clay has limited chemical resistance. With Brady's SPC Absorbents, all of these shortcomings are eliminated! There is a negative financial impact of using clay to clean-up your leaks, drips and spills.

A proper spill control program can create a safe and productive work environment for your employees in addition to protecting our environment. By complying with EPA and OSHA regulations for spill control, a facility can increase productivity and limit equipment down time. In addition, the cost of non-compliance around this area of regulation can have devastating effects on a business' reputation and financial performance. Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan The EPA issued its final rule amending the SPCC under the authority of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. This regulation became effective as of August 16, 2002. What is an SPCC Plan? An SPCC plan is a facility-specific, comprehensive plan outlining both the containment and countermeasures implemented to prevent a spill from occurring and a series of response procedures in the event that one does. The SPCC plan addresses the following three areas: Operating procedures that prevent spills Control measures installed to prevent a spill from reaching the environment Countermeasures to contain, clean-up and mitigate the effects of a spill that reaches the environment Confused On Which Absorbents To Use?
