Chemical Containment

Critical to many key projects, the issue of Chemical Containment has a more significant impact than many realise.


We have a proud record of installations related to both chemical containment and water treatment plants.


Secure chemical containment is of paramount importance in various industries where hazardous or potentially harmful chemicals are handled. It involves the implementation of measures, equipment, and protocols to prevent the release of hazardous substances into the environment or the workplace, ensuring the safety of personnel, the public, and the environment.


Here are some key reasons why secure chemical containment is so critical.


Secure chemical containment protects workers and laboratory personnel from exposure to harmful chemicals. Exposure to toxic, corrosive, or otherwise hazardous substances can lead to acute or chronic health issues, ranging from skin irritation to respiratory problems, organ damage, and even long-term illnesses like cancer.


Containment prevents hazardous chemicals from escaping into the air, water, or soil, which can have devastating effects on the environment. Chemical releases can contaminate water bodies, soil, and air quality, harming ecosystems and wildlife. This can lead to long-lasting damage and costly cleanup efforts.


In some cases, chemical accidents can impact surrounding communities, posing risks to public health and safety. Secure containment measures help prevent accidental releases that could harm nearby residents, schools, hospitals, and other institutions.


Many industries are subject to strict regulatory requirements and standards regarding chemical handling and containment. Non-compliance can result in legal consequences, fines, and damage to a company's reputation.


Proper containment measures contribute to uninterrupted operations by reducing the likelihood of accidents and disruptions caused by chemical incidents. This leads to increased productivity and reduced downtime. Secure containment helps organizations identify potential hazards and implement appropriate controls to mitigate risks associated with chemical handling. This proactive approach prevents accidents before they happen.


Even with proper containment, emergencies can still occur. However, having robust containment systems in place makes it easier to respond effectively to chemical spills, leaks, or releases. It enables quicker containment, evacuation plans, and minimization of damage.


We are also proud to be listed in the exclusive Irish Development Agency (IDA Ireland) DIrectory in both the Consulting Services and Cleanroom Design, Construction, Validation Service Categories. You can review our listings by clicking here.


For us, excellence is a habit.
