Railcars are key vessels of the ground shipping industry. They are used to transport large quantities of nonhazardous and hazardous materials across the country. In the event of an accident, railcars carrying hazardous materials pose a serious threat to people and the environment, but Clean Management’s Railcar Emergency Response service mitigates these risks to protect first responders as well as those directly and indirectly impacted by railcar incidents.
What is railcar cleanup?
Railcars are used to transport chemical, biological, and industrial products to consumers and producers throughout the country. To meet regulatory compliance standards, these tank and hopper cars must be properly maintained and cleaned. Conductors must also have plans in place to respond to potential hazmat incidents caused by the contents of the railcars.
Tank cars carrying chemicals, toxic waste, and/or volatile materials could potentially cause a hazmat incident. Whether an unexpected leak leaves trace amounts of hazardous materials along a rail route or a collision causes the car to topple, proper emergency response procedures prevent the spread of contamination. A timely response that meets regulatory compliance standards reduces the risk of injury to workers and the environment.
What does emergency railcar cleanup include?
- Stabilization of the hazmat incident site
- Remediation of the incident site
- Consultation with first responders
- Implementation of regulatory compliance procedures
- Removal and disposal of all hazardous and nonhazardous waste
