First Mats, the provider of industrial safety products, has launched its new range of compact Oil Spill Kits.

These kits are designed to respond quickly and effectively to oil spills, ensuring safety and compliance with the Control of Pollution (Oil Storage) Regulations 2002.

The updated range of Oil Spill Kits from First Mats includes smaller, more portable kits, such as the 20-litre capacity Forklift Truck spill kits and the 35-litre versions with a shoulder bag for easy transportation. These compact kits are designed to handle various types of oil, including Hydraulic Oil, Engine Oil, and Lubricating Oil, as well as fuels and other hydrocarbons.

"Our new range of compact Oil Spill Kits is designed to help those in the freight and logistics industry respond quickly and effectively to oil spills, a common hazard in this sector," said Richard O'Connor, Marketing Director at First Mats. "We've introduced these smaller kits to ensure that wherever an oil spill happens, provisions are on hand to deal with it and stay compliant with UK regulations."

The kits include various absorbent materials such as absorbent pads, socks, and disposable bags, all stored within a highly visible, easily accessible, and mobile container. The compact size and portability of these kits make them ideal for the freight and logistics industry, where quick response to spills is crucial to maintain safety and compliance with regulations.
