Are you fully prepared for an oil or chemical incident? Can you safely prevent the pollution of the environment due to escaping water-polluting liquids? How do you deal with dripping machinery to prevent a work safety hazard?
In this issue of "safety @ work", your new security update from DENIOS, and the following pages, we will provide you with comprehensive information on binders. Find out, for example, what advantages DENSORB absorbents provide compared to traditional granulates and how you can best prepare for emergencies.
Whether its for machinery drip losses during daily work processes or for emergency care in case of a spill - absorbents help you to avoid incalculable risks and associated costs. DENSORB absorbents are available for a wide variety of applications and in many practical versions. So that you can quickly find the right product for your application, we have put together important information and decision support.
One thing that is particularly interesting about spilled liquids is how quickly, safely and thoroughly they can be removed. More often than not companies use mineral granules for absorbing liquids, but are DENSORB mats a better alternative? We wanted to know so we put both products to the test.
DENSORB absorbent mats are used in many applications and they often have to endure a lot - for example, when they are used as a long term underlay near machinery. Read here about the load and quality tests we subject our products to, to ensure they perform properly.
In the case of an emergency, it is only possible to react as quickly as possible with the appropriate emergency equipment. With our practical DENSORB emergency sets you are not only fast to the leak site, but also have the right aids on hand. Here we show what's in it!
Tobias Authmann is a certified biologist and for seven years has worked as a specialist in hazardous material storage and occupational safety for the DENIOS Academy. Among other things, he teaches in his practical "Emergency Leak Training" course, the necessary know-how for the prevention and control of hazardous substance leaks. We spoke to him about his experiences.
Again and again we hear of incidents involving oil spills on water, with serious consequences. Generally, we only hear about large scale catastrophes in the news, but small scale oil leaks can also have devastating effects. Here we discuss how companies can take precautions to prevent oil leaks in local waters and the equipment needed in case of an emergency.
