Many times, organizations make the mistake of believing that as long as they have adequate absorbent products on hand, they are in compliance with provincial rules & regulations. However, absorbent products are just one tool that will keep you in compliance. Having a good, sound secondary containment system in place will ensure that your work area is in true, full compliance. For example, ensuring that your drums are on top of a spill pallet that has the capability to contain the drums  entire liquid capacity in the event of a leak or rupture. The trick is to prepare for a spill before it happens so that you aren't rushing for absorbent pads as a liquid spill enters a sensitive working environment and instead, automatically contain the spill, worry free, and then dispose of it accordingly.
