What is spill control and why do we need solutions for it? Spill Control Kits help you plan for accidents so you are not scrambling when something happens. As always, the best scenario is not needing to use a Spill Control Kit, so we should use best practices to avoid accidents. That being said, we should also be prepared with the best items in the industry. Products like SpillFyter, UltraTech, SPHAG, QUICKBERM, and TekSorb have paved the way to keeping spills out of groundwater, neighborhoods and out of control. With partners like these at our fingertips, MC Tool & Safety Sales is your best place to shop for the right spill containment solution in the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
WHEN DO WE NEED SPILL CONTROL KITS?
Contractors and public workers often times are dealing with unexpected spills and need to have the equipment to contain the spill immediately. At MC Tool & Safety Sales, we offer Spill Control Kits that make it easy to have what you need at your fingertips when these spills happen. Whether the skid steer just busted a hydraulic hose or the new forklift operator knocked over the oil drum you will be prepared when you show up with an Oil Only spill kit bucket made for that problem.
The Universal Truck Spill Kit is our best selling absorbent kit. It fits in the cab of your truck, behind or under the seat, and has everything you need for most spills you would encounter. Check out the video below if you want to see one in action. Special thanks to Rock Leaf Water Environmental and Shelly Binfield for the great demo!
Recently, we started carrying FyterTech absorbent solutions to bring you all the Spill Control Kits you could ever need. From HazMat bags to 95 gallon Oil Only drum kits, we can work together to make sure you have the right spill kit for your work environment. Because there is no handbook for exactly how to clean up every spill, we will work with you to make sure you have the items you need should the need arise.
That brings me to my next point:

IT’S OKAY NOT TO KNOW WHAT YOU NEED
I spent 20 years in a different industry before buying MC Tool & Safety and I learn something new about our industry every day. With the ever changing construction landscape I wanted to take some time to say “It’s okay to ask questions, it’s okay if you don’t know what the best solution is, and it’s okay to seek out people who can help you!”
That’s what we are best at doing here, we are more than distribution, we are problem solvers. And the reason we are good at it is because we know when to ask for help! Because of our wonderful suppliers and manufacturers reps we have access to the best in the business. So I encourage you to email me, or Ken, or Brett at anytime. Ask the questions you need answers to and we will do our best to find the answers and solutions for you. Most importantly we will not hand you a cookie-cutter solution. We want the solution to be BEST for your business, for your job site and for your crew. We want to make you the hero. You are the star in this story, not us. You found the problem and the solution, we are just your supporting cast.
