Hydraulic Oil Spill

THE FOREST INDUSTRY STANDARD

Hydraulic Oil Spill

Scottish Woodlands Toolbox Talk

During routine maintenance about 10 litres of hydraulic oil was lost from a harvesting machine onto the surface of a layby on the forest road. The operator took no action to recover the spilt oil and allowed it to soak away into the road.
The main contractor is now facing a large bill to dig out and replace the contaminated hard core and have it disposed of as Special Waste to a registered disposal site. 
Never ignore an oil or diesel spill even if it is quite small, it will spread much further than you think.
