Mercury Spillage Cleaning Specialists

With years of professional experience and access to specialist cleaning techniques, we’re well-equipped to handle any situation that arises in Sittingbourne.

If you require a professional mercury spillage cleaning company in Sittingbourne, look no further.

Mercury was once a widely used element that we regularly utilised in some medicines and cosmetics. However, since the discovery of its toxicity in the mid-1900s, there has been a decrease in the production of mercury in products we use. However, since it is not banned, a spill can still happen, especially in industrial workplaces.

If a spill occurs in the workplace or at home, you must remain calm and act quickly to minimise exposure. Here at ICE Cleaning, we can be on-site in a matter of hours in an emergency and keep your safety our top priority.

Which workplaces are at risk of mercury spills?

Most workplaces with mercury on-site are industrial facilities such as factories, workhouses, and chemical plants. The use and disposal of mercury in these places increase the potential for occupational exposures for individuals working in:

Oil and gas services

Facilities that use chemicals, gases, and oils might have mercury on-site if the components require mercury cells. Electrical equipment operated could also contain mercury, which puts the workers at risk of chronic mercury exposure.

Recycling facilities
When electronics, batteries, and fluorescent lights are disposed of, they arrive at recycling facilities for hazardous waste. The workers will be at risk of exposure, but due to the knowledge of hazardous waste, there are strict health and safety regulations to prepare for a spill. Regular recycling facilities may be exposed to large amounts of mercury when these products have been disposed of improperly.

Health and dental services

Dentists and dental assistants might encounter small amounts of mercury during a dental procedure. Some practices still use mercury amalgams, but this is rare as mercury use has decreased. Hospitals and offices may also have older equipment like thermometers and barometers, which contain mercury and could expose patients to mercury if broken.

Construction sites
Building sites will often use heavy electrical equipment that contain traces of mercury. If these break or expose the inner components, workers could experience mercury exposure.

How to prevent occupational exposures

Mercury is one of the 500 substances with a Workplace Exposure Limit (WEL) under the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) guide to hazardous substances. Therefore, you are legally obligated to limit your use of mercury in your facility and to protect your workers against chronic exposure if you are an employer. You can prevent occupational exposures like this if you:

Chemical spill risk assessments

You must conduct a risk assessment annually if you work with hazardous substances such as mercury. These assessments help you identify hazards early on and could prevent any accidents from occurring.

Monitor mercury exposures

You should monitor levels of mercury in the air with an air purity test. By monitoring these consistently, you can be aware of smaller exposures early before it escalates into a preventable accident.
