Hazardous Chemical Handling

The hidden costs of hazardous chemical handling

Safety professionals know that hazardous chemical handling comes with countless costs.

There’s the cost of management’s time and training when developing the emergency response plan.

Costs involved in training your labor force to implement the plan.

And the costs of the spill control products used in the plan.

Those are all direct costs and calculating directs costs is straightforward.  You simply add up every dollar.

But what about the indirect costs?

They’re the ones that don’t have a clear and obvious number attached.

None the less, that doesn’t make the costs any less real.

For example.  What about the costs involved if there’s exposure to surrounding communities via storm drains or toxic vapors?

Or the calculated labor costs involved with the time it takes to clean up even a small hazardous chemical spill?

And then there’s lost productivity as the labor force slows operations to follow all steps in your emergency response plan.

Those hidden costs can add up and be expensive.

Unless indirect costs are also measured – even if they’re only approximate – companies will continue to make decisions based on too little information and often opt for more short-sighted solutions.

With those hidden costs in mind, imagine if you were able to eliminate a step or two in your procedure by using different absorption products?  Products that perform better than conventional methodology?

This is where PetroGuard can help.
