6 Reasons to Stop Using Clay Today
Products such as PIG® Absorbent Pads and Loose Absorbents prove to be much cleaner, safer and more effective alternatives to clay granules for leak and spill cleanup in the workplace. Clay granules are often seen as a cheaper way of dealing with leak and spill cleanup, however they prove to be impractical as they are messier, dustier and heavier than other spill absorbent products. PIG® Absorbent Pads, PIG® Absorbent Socks and PIG® Loose Absorbents prove to be more effective alternatives for absorbing, handling, and cleaning up dangerous leaks and spills, and they help save you time and money on labour and material costs. In this article you'll learn about 6 reasons you should stop using clay and switch to absorbent mat pads and socks.
Avoid a Pain in the Neck... and Back... and Feet...
An employee who stands for long periods of time often develops aches and pains in the back, neck, legs or feet. Changes in job procedures may alleviate these aches and pains – or not. Introducing plant safety equipment like anti-fatigue mats may be a simple yet effective solution. These soft, slip-resistant, durable polymer mats provide a cushion for workers to stand on. Anti-fatigue mats can also help you keep your floors clean and dry, and provide many ergonomic benefits for workers as well as provide industrial floor safety. But how exactly does it help to stand on a softer surface?

Be Prepared for Spills with a 7 Step Guide to Spill Response!
Every facility should have an effective spill response plan to prevent accidents from becoming disasters. Stocking the appropriate spill response equipment and providing the proper training for all employees is important before a spill response plan can be implemented. Combining the correct spill equipment and training with a clear spill response guide ensures total preparedness. PIG® Spill Kits, designed for fast spill response, include absorbent pads, socks and pillows to enable you to contain and absorb spills effectively. Assessing the risk, selecting the correct PPE equipment, confining the spill, stopping the source, evaluating the incident and implementing spill cleanup, decontaminating the site and completing required reports are all considered effective steps to take when responding to a spill.
Colour-Coded Spill Kits Keep Workers and Your Facility Safe
Spill kits should be provided for every type of liquid that is likely to spill in your facility. Improper use of a spill kit during an emergency spill response situation will mean that the spilled liquid will not be absorbed and the problem will remain unsolved; therefore it is important to distinguish between the different types of spill kits available so that the correct one is used by your spill responders and costly environmental spills and worker injuries are prevented.
