Environmental incident management

Preparedness and rapid response for a wide range of spills, pollutants, and environmental incidents.

We help organisations prepare for and respond quickly in the event of an environmental incident with 24/7-365 emergency response, preparedness planning, training, contracts, and exercises.

If the worst happens, we respond to incidents involving oil, chemicals, hazardous material (hazmat), hazardous and noxious substances (HNS), flooding, sewage, and other types of pollution so that you can minimise the impact on the environment, operational downtime, levels of fine, avoid prosecution and maintain your reputation and shareholder value.

Demonstrating reasonable endeavour in an incident

You will never be given a permit for a spill. That’s why your operation needs to demonstrate it has taken all reasonable endeavours to mitigate against one.

The Water Resources Act states that ‘It is an offence to cause or knowingly permit any poisonous, noxious or polluting material, or any solid waste to enter any controlled water.’

The Environmental Permitting Regulations state: “It is an offence to cause or knowingly permit a water discharge activity or a groundwater activity without an environmental permit.”

Reduce the risk

Ensure safety, minimise damage to the environment, operational downtime, prosecution, fines, reputational damage, shareholder value.

These are all implications of an environmental incident. Our response and preparedness services, and expert response capability will help you reduce your risk.

Manage the remediation following an environmental incident.

Todays exercise had a successful outcome, although it was simulated of course. The Port of London has a lot of marine resources but Adler and Allan brought their shoreside equipment, skimmer, tanker and a whole host of people to enable us to deploy the boom from the shore. We chose Adler and Allan (to be our Tier 2 Oil Spill Response Organisation) because of their expertise in the field, the range of equipment they have available, and the nationwide 24-hour response.
