December is a time to reflect on the old year and plan for the new one.
For businesses, the end of the year is a great opportunity to think about the future and prepare for spills and other unforeseeable events.
If your company stores or uses hazardous chemicals such as solvents, cleaners, and fuels, you are at risk of having a spill. Part of any spill plan is having an emergency cleanup contractor lined up before a spill happens.
Having pre-existing agreements with a HazMat contractor decreases response times and cleanup costs.
Below are just a few of the advantages of choosing Protect Environmental as your go-to emergency spill response contractor.
Fast response: Protect has two offices in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and can rapidly respond to spills in the North Texas Area. Our staff are on call 24/7, so no matter where or when your spill occurs, we’ll have a team ready to handle the containment and cleanup.
Detailed Record Keeping: From the moment our teams are called to respond to a HazMat spill, they’re busy gathering information and taking notes. Accurate information is essential to conducting an efficient and effective cleanup, so our teams take photographs, make maps and record every action taken to respond to the spill.
State Mandated Reports: Spills of various materials have different reporting requirements. In Texas, spill reports must meet certain criteria and be submitted to the TCEQ in a specific time frame. Failure to do so could result in hefty fines and other penalties.
When Protect cleans up a spill, we use our detailed records to compile a report for the responsible party to ensure their compliance with State laws.
Fair and Transparent Billing: At Protect Environmental, we believe that our clients deserve the best treatment possible when misfortune strikes. Our staff knows what they need to get the job done and work to use the most cost-effective solutions when responding to a spill.
Our clients can count on us to have their best interests in mind so there won’t be any unnecessary or exaggerated costs.
Peace of mind: The work we do is important to us, and we take pride in doing the job the right way. We handle the job from start to finish and don’t take shortcuts that put our employees or clients at risk.
We make sure our clients’ legal obligations are met; keeping them in compliance with government regulations and eliminating their risk of fines due to improper cleanup and waste disposal.
