In any occupation today, the possibility of exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals or blood and body fluids cannot be ignored. And spills such as these pose health risks not only to personnel coming into immediate contact with the spill, but can bring danger to the environment, as well. The immediate and effective cleanup and inactivation of spills is thus critical not only for the well-being of employees, but for the protection of the environment surrounding the facility. Using drum liners is a step that would afford additional security against leaks and spills.

Making use of drum liners would bring additional benefits in keeping chemical contents separated from other materials and waste products. Waste materials can be classified into any of the following types. Wastes that can create fire under certain conditions, such as extreme temperature or pressure, for instance, or which can spontaneously combust, are called ignitable wastes. Products such as oils, paints, solvents and degreasers generally fall into this category. Acids or bases which have the capability of corroding metal (barrels, containers, storage tanks and drums, for instance) are called corrosive wastes. Rust removers, battery acid and acid or alkaline cleaning fluids are some examples. Reactive wastes are materials that are unstable and usually explode or produce toxic fumes, gases, and vapors when they are mixed with water. Explosives and lithium-sulfide batteries would be examples of this kind of waste. Toxic wastes are materials that pose serious harm whenever they are ingested or absorbed. These would also release toxic chemicals into the soil or groundwater when they are disposed of improperly on land. Materials that contain highly concentrated amounts of heavy metals fall under this classification. Examples of these would be cadmium, lead, or mercury.

The pursuit of maintaining safety, productivity and cleanliness in the workplace should remain a top priority for establishments. In this regard, DAWG has endeavored to provide products and services over the course of more than twenty years. From its beginnings as a small spill control company, DAWG has become a large multi-brand supplier of products which are specially made for industrial safety, personal protection and building maintenance.
