Profit Through Prevention - Best Environmental Practices for Fleet Maintenance: Chapter 13: Floor Cleanup Done Right
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 13 of 14 for this video. Fleet maintenance can involve spills of various products. These spills create safety hazards and contaminants can be released to the environment. Spills can be reduced by implementing spill prevention techniques, dry cleanup methods, and effective oil / water separator maintenance. These practices will reduce liabilities, protect the environment, community and workers and save time and money. Spills will still occur, but the use of dry cleanup methods will help keep contaminants out of the drain. If a spill is too large to be cleaned up with a rag, a four step process should be followed. Facilities should coat the floor with a sealant to reduce the time and effort of cleanup. Other techniques to help the performance of oil / water separators include minimizing solids and reducing oil accumulation.
