Soil Remediation Makes Space Usable Again

Having problems handling your contaminated soil?

Solvent polluted with hydrocarbons poses a number of difficulties. The contamination, which is frequently poisonous, poses risks to the immediate environment and its inhabitants health and safety, as well as the possibility that it will spread to nearby areas. Regulators may impose fines if the risk is not eliminated. Soil Remediation is required when soil is discovered to be polluted. This comprises clearing the area of the contaminated material and making sure the remaining soil poses no or minimal dangers.

However, maintaining and cleaning up polluted soil has unique difficulties.

  • How contaminated soil can and should be managed depends on a number of variables, including:
  • The poisonousness of hydrocarbons
  • Pollutant biodegradability
  • site microbiology, and environmental conditions
  • Quick & efficient remedies for soil contamination

Physical removal or bioremediation are the two primary techniques for treating hydrocarbon-contaminated so

Expert manipulation of the soil organisms is required for bioremediation in order for the contamination to be naturally removed.

Although the idea of bioremediation is by no means new, industrial views have historically prevented it from being acknowledged as a practical solution. However, it has now gained acceptance as a valid method of repair, and with good reason, as a result of the practice’s widespread adoption on a global (and now local) scale.

Comprehensive contamination analysis testing is needed to establish which soil remediation method is best for you. This is a lengthy process that could take six months.

Through this testing, the kind of soil, the toxicity of the pollution, and the bacterial activity will all be identified. A thorough understanding of this issue will be ensured by the collection of informative data. While bioremediation may need a longer time commitment than conventional remediation techniques, the environmental, social, and economic advantages it offers much outweigh the initial investment.

A Respirator Face Fit Test will ensure that your personnel is suitably protected from COVID-19.

A respirator’s main function is to prevent users from breathing in dangerous particles like dust or airborne viruses like COVID-19. However, the level of protection may differ based on how well a specific brand and type of respirator fit. In order to ensure the best fit on a worker’s face and, thus, the greatest level of protection, respirator fit tests are carried out.

We provide an easy Respirator Fit Testing service that may be carried out either at an office or on-site at your place of employment. Testing is carried out in compliance with Australian Standard AS/NZ 1715:2009 Selection Use and Maintenance of Respiratory Protective Equipment and is available for all respirator brands.

Testing for Quantitative Fit

For any tight-fitting or full-face respirator, quantitative fit testing is employed. It uses a device called a Portacount to measure leakage around the respirator’s face seal and provide a numerical rating known as a fit factor. This fit factor gives a clue as to whether the selected respirator offers the user enough protection. The industry standard for workers exposed to harmful particles at work is quantitative fit testing.
