At Birdon we take our environmental responsibility seriously and we are aware of our obligations relating to marine spill prevention. In the unlikely event of a marine spill emergency, the ability to successfully respond can be credited to a well prepared emergency response plan, which is something we regularly practice.
If a marine spill were to occur at Birdon’s shipyard our team is trained to follow the 3 Cs Plan:
- Control the spill;
- Contain the spill;
- Clean up the spill.
Birdon has specialised kits located for easy access in the event of an emergency. Each of these kits contains marine and land-based spill management products including booms, absorbent pads, personal protective equipment and a variety of absorbent agents.
Birdon’s proactive approach and IMS Certification is evidence of our commitment to quality and the environment.
