Emergency incident and spill response

Emergency incident and spill response service

Our parent company, RSK, has an established incident and spill response service. This service offers continuous 24-hour telephone coverage to provide rapid on-site assessment of incidents resulting from, for example, cable leaks, accidental discharges, fuel leaks, spills and vandalism.

RSK has over 20 years’ experience of providing this service to the private and public sectors through its 17 UK regional offices and in-house laboratory facilities. The service provides a cost-effective and immediate response to stabilise, assess and, if necessary, remediate the effects of pollution incidents.

Our aim is to support you through the process, minimise your likely financial and corporate costs, lead the clean-up process and liaise, as appropriate, with regulators, other authorities and stakeholders.
