Oil spillage kit for construction sites

25 April 2008

Hewden and Balfour Beatty Power Networks in the UK have developed an oil spillage kit they say is the first of its kind specifically for the construction industry.

The kit, which is being installed in all tool equipment and plant on hire from Hewden to Balfour Beatty Power Networks, comprises, typically, ten 45 cm2 hydrophobic absorbent pads and two socks, in a cylindrical bag, for stowing behind the driver's seat. The socks can be positioned around drains to prevent oil seepage and contamination of drainage systems.
