When contacted, our Emergency Response Teams swiftly conduct a comprehensive assessment of the situation. Whether we are performing a chemical spill cleanup resulting from a highway accident, HAZMAT cleanup, managing in-plant releases, or other emergency clean up services, HazChem always prioritizes safety, compliance, and efficiency. Our emergency response process typically follows these steps:


  • Identification of the spilled or leaking substance
  • Assess immediate threats to the environment and human health
  • Containment of contamination or spill
  • Perform hazardous materials spill cleanup
  • Safe transport of container(s) to a secure area
  • Proper disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste
  • Separation of damaged and/or contaminated items
  • Thorough documentation throughout the project, including before, during, and after photos
  • Submission of comprehensive documentation, inclusive of detailed reports and photos, which meticulously document all phases of the emergency response services we provided.


Hazardous materials are constantly being transported along highways, railways, and waterways in the United States. Given the inevitability of spills, it is crucial for companies handling such materials to have a well-prepared prevention and HAZMAT emergency spill response plan in place. Managing spills is not a task that can be undertaken independently. Instead, it requires a knowledgeable partner who is OSHA-trained in current local, state, and federal guidelines for emergency HAZMAT cleanup services and committed to following established protocols consistently.

At HazChem, our Emergency Rapid Response Team crew members undergo extensive training before participating in any hazardous spills or HAZMAT cleanups. They continuously engage in training activities to stay up-to-date with evolving regulations and best practices. Our on-site spill managers and technicians are HAZWOPER, DOT, and OSHA certified, ensuring their competence in handling your emergency response spills. Furthermore, our quarterly training exercises rigorously prepare all HazChem workers to effectively manage emergency situations.
