Responding / reacting to a spill is only the first step in dealing with a spill.
As soon as the leak has stopped, and the booms etc are in place, the longer term impacts of the spill need to be addressed e.g. the kerosene soaked soil which is slowly leaking kerosene in to the local watercourse (see our Tipperty case study for a good example ).
Spill assessment and Clean-up is a highly technical and time sensitive process. The impact from spills often increases over time as the spilled product moves through the soils and/or groundwater, therefore the sooner it’s addressed, the less impact caused and the cheaper the process.
Soilutions site assessment and clean-up services are used by insurers, loss adjuster and construction sites across the UK.
Our service includes-
•In-depth environmental survey of spill impact with risk identification
•Complete project management from spill assessment to site re-instatement
•Remediation of contaminated soils, waters and structures
•Bespoke reporting and validation. We provide all the technical information necessary to demonstrate that the all risks from the spill have been dealt with during our works.
We’ve produced reports to major UK loss Adjusters and Insurers, satisfying them that our works have been successfully carried out and are in line with current legislation.
If you’ve just had a spill feel free to phone us for advice.
If you want to protect your site from potential future spills then we’ll gladly add you to our ‘Serviced Sites’ list which includes site locations and identified site liabilities (e.g. fuel bowsers) and receptors (e.g. drains) to ensure we turn up quickly and with the right equipment should the worst happen.
