Every operation should keep an appropriate supply of spill response equipment. That includes absorbent pads, booms, socks, and pillows, which contain (and in some cases, neutralize) spilled liquids, allowing for safe, compliant cleanup. To find absorbent materials for your operation, you’ll need to perform a hazard assessment. This is particularly important for laboratories and other facilities that work with hydrofluoric (HF) acids and other chemicals.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential in the battery room. That’s not just our opinion: OSHA 1926.441(a)(5) specifically states that “face shields, aprons, and rubber gloves shall be provided for workers handling acids or batteries.”
Great waste management allows for a much more efficient operation. That’s particularly true for warehouses, construction sites, factories, and other businesses that generate a large quantity of waste and recyclables. When workers spend their time emptying roll-out carts, they’re not at their most productive — and when containers aren’t movable, excess materials and waste will stack up quickly.
