Every year there are over 10,000 reported pollution incidents in the UK. Fuel spills, chemical spills, leaking tanks and other pollution incidents are likely to be damaging to the environment and are likely to require support from an environmental consultant with specialist skills and experience in dealing with chemical, solvent and fuel spills and leaks.
The sudden or undetected release of fuels or chemicals into the surrounding environment poses a distinct set of legal, technical and logistical challenges, which must be met in a structured and timely manner in order to enable appropriate management and response
It is important to act quickly and engage professional support if a business is responsible for a pollution incident. ESI’s recommendations and guidelines have been prepared to limit the impact of the release and limit the responsibilities of the person or organisation responsible for the spill.
