How to Prevent Oil Spills on Jobsites

Last Updated On Dec 14, 2020

Back in 1736, Benjamin Franklin proclaimed that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Clearly, he knew that preventing the cause was better than dealing with the effect, in this case fires in Philadelphia. So does the same apply to oil spills on jobsites? We believe that it is much easier to learn how to prevent oil spills and oil contamination than it is to clean up after them. Taking the time to plan ahead will pay dividends in the long run, so let’s cover what you should take into consideration.
