Why have a spill kit on board truck and tankers ?

It is important to note that there is common misconception that truck or tanker spill kits are to be used for the actual spill clean up. Naturally this is impossible as most tankers or trucks carry tons or large volumes of hazmat materials. The key objective of truck/tanker spill kits is firstly to enable the clean up of day to day spillages, secondly and most importantly in the event of a major spillage, truck/tanker spill kits enable your drivers to quickly respond to de-risking and blocking off hazmat spillages into storm water drains and containment of run away spillages whilst awaiting your response team from arriving. This greatly reduces the risk, the cost and the impact to both the environment and to the public.
