IBC Spill Containment with a Bund or Pallet from Wholesale Safety Storage Australia

IBC or intermediate bulk containers require large IBC spill containment to handle the volumes they hold. Wholesale Safety Storage Australia provides solutions for your needs, and our products meet the codes under which you must comply. Our goal is to keep your business compliant and your employees safe. IBCs are a convenient method of storing and transporting bulk chemicals for a variety of reasons. Their cube shape allows for efficient space utilisation, they’re easy to move with a forklift, and the tap provides easy dispensing capabilities. They are durable, but when they do fail, they need an effective IBC bund to prevent small contaminations as well as catastrophic incidents. Benefits of Secondary Containment Secondary confinement of IBC benefits the bottom line of a company in several ways. Firstly, it keeps you compliant with regulations and prevents you from paying fines or losing money through shut-downs. If you do have a spill, the clean-up can be extensive and expensive which makes prevention much more cost-effective. Spills and leaks can corrode, cause a fire or create other types of damage to your equipment or facility and insurance will not reimburse you if you are found to be non-compliant with safe operating procedures such as IBC spill containment. The replacement equipment or repairs will come out of profits which could send a company into financial devastation. When hazardous materials escape, it puts your employees at risk for injury or illness. Of course, you want to prevent any suffering of your workers and keep them safe. Lost-time injuries not only lead to hardships for your employees and their families but also hurt your productivity. The news of accidents or noncompliance violations can travel through the industry which will hurt your reputation. Suppliers and customers may look for other businesses with which to deal so they aren’t associated with poor practices. Secondary containment such as an IBC spill pallet benefits the environment by preventing hazardous materials from contaminating the soil and water supplies. Even little leaks can contaminate drinking water and affect wildlife. If leaks or spills occur, reclamation is easy if you have an effective IBC containment pallet in place.

Inspections of IBC Spill Containment

Companies just can’t put an IBC on a containment pallet and assume the job is done. Secondary containment requires regular checks to ensure it will do its job when needed. For example, an IBC bund or spill pallet should be inspected for cracks, corrosion, or other points of concern. You need to remove precipitation accumulation as well. If your containers are outside, plant growth can give you clues that you may have an unseen leak. Some chemicals will fertilise plants so you may see excessive growth around the IBC bund while others will kill plants, causing the area to seem lifeless. If you have concerns about an existing system or about what type or size of IBC spill pallet is appropriate for your needs, contact Wholesale Safety Storage Australia, and we can help.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
