TWM asked Fosse Liquitrol to carry out a company wide spill risk analysis to evaluate their current spill management system, identify any shortcomings and to present recommendations for improvements where necessary in the form of a written report. Fosse Liquitrol was asked to provide their spill response training course, accredited by the British Safety Industry Federation. The course was aligned to ensure that it was relevant to TWM operations and provided a blend of theoretical and practical elements.
I invited Fosse Liquitrol onto the premises of TWM in order to instruct staff on how to deal with a spillage effectively on site. Their expertise on the subject was extremely insightful and beneficial to our operations. The products that they provide are very innovative and would effectively deal with a spillage if one ever occurred. Our staff gained a good insight into spill response, planning and relevant legislation that was applicable to our industry. Fosse Liquitrol offer solutions for further improvement and will help us comply with company and legal standards”
