The new Mineral Exploration Drilling Code Of Practice published by the Department of Mines and Petroleum focuses on spill control and prevention.

Section 7 of the code identifies spills of diesel, petrol and acids as major risks with serious consequences including slip hazards, and thermal and chemical burns.

Risk controls identified by the COP include sufficient spill response equipment to deal with a complete failure of the largest container of hazardous substances or dangerous goods; the use of bunded pallets or portable bunds for hazardous substances or dangerous goods; and clean-up of all spills of hazardous substances or dangerous goods and disposal of cleaning aids.

Spill Station Australia  offers the complete range of spill control equipment required by the COP including spill trailers, portable bunds and self-contained eyewash equipment.
