Emergency backup is a key element when handling and transporting hazardous waste. If there is an incident, such as a road traffic accident resulting in a chemical spillage, the polluter/haulier is responsible for the clean-up, even though they may not be responsible for the accident.
The HSE expects you to have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place and in the event of a major incident you could be fined for not having one.
We implemented a Disaster Recovery Plan incorporating support from our own specialist insurance provider who operate 24/7 emergency environmental response services.
This includes a complete response package from the initial mobilisation of spill clean-up teams and equipment through to any required remediation work.”
An effective Disaster Recovery Plan is essential. If you would like peace of mind Haz Environmental can help you develop your own plan and provide the Environmental support that could protect you from potentially costly fines.
