Importance Of An IBC Containment Bund in The Workplace by Wholesale Safety Storage Australia

Importance Of An IBC Containment Bund in The Workplace

Businesses that work with liquids are continually searching for the appropriate containment system to prevent harm to other products and guarantee worker safety. IBC containment bunds may be the solution you require for more effective storage.

While most commercial containment systems can hold enormous volumes of liquid, many do not lessen the effects of potential mishaps. Primary and secondary containers should be part of a strong containment system for liquid materials. The first is used to contain the liquid, and the second is used to contain any leaks or spills that may occur during storage or transportation.

 Understanding IBC Spill Containment

IBCs (intermediate bulk containers) are reusable storage and transportation containers for industrial materials that can hold significant quantities of both liquids and powders. They frequently handle dangerous compounds that may be heated and photosensitive; thus, they are made to be strong and resilient. The primary container is merely the first element of any spill management system for handling these kinds of compounds. Additionally, secondary containment is just as necessary.

The Importance of IBC Bunded Pallets

Workplace safety is a top concern for many liquid and powder-using industries. Businesses that deal with petrochemical goods or raw materials in particular need to be careful since mistakes with liquid handling can have serious effects. According to the Australian government’s Safe Work rules, businesses are expected to offer sufficient equipment and standard operating procedures for handling accidents. While staff members are instructed on how to handle these materials with the right care to prevent mishaps, proper containment units and storage facilities must also be made available.

An easy tool that business owners can utilise to comply with Australia’s workplace safety regulations is an IBC containment pallet. These containment systems can hold leaks or spillages of combustible and non-combustible liquids and are composed of sturdy materials that lessen the chance of damage to the workplace and environment.

Feel free to contact us immediately after placing your order if required.

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.
