Spill Response Plan

Procedure for dealing with spillages:

  • Immediately protect yourself from harm – use your PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
  • Identify the source of the spill. Try to prevent the spill continuing and try to contain the spill. Do not add anything to the spill that may cause harm or increase the risk or amount of contamination.
  • Locate the nearest storm water drains and protect from the spill. Cover catch pit grates, plug drainage pipes if possible. Create dams around grates, open drains and any areas of unsealed ground.
  • Call your Crest Regional Manager and Spill Response New Zealand and inform them of the spill.
  • Carefully remove the hazardous material and store in an appropriate container. Isolate the material from any danger.
  • Inform any people that may come in contact with the area that there has been a spill.
  • Remove all residues of the spill as carefully as possible keeping storm water grates and at risk areas protected at all times.
  • Take note of clean up materials used and replace.
