ROADSIDE EMERGENCY CLEAN UP SERVICES
Emergency Accident Cleanup
HazChem Environmental responds to thousands of roadway accidents every year with spill clean up and other emergency clean up services. Highway accidents with chemical spills are especially dangerous, as they pose serious health risks to the public and the environment. While most hazardous cargo reaches its destination without incident. However, hazardous material spills due to truck accidents, tanker truck crash and truck rollovers demand immediate emergency response. Emergency spill cleanup by a professional spill clean up company such as HazChem Environmental is crucial. Having our number available for emergency highway accidents, chemical spills and truck spills is the first step towards proper accident cleanup.
Emergency Roadside Spill Clean Up
Roadside spills encompass hazardous material spills arising from vehicular fluids, the cargo being transported, or a combination of both.
Vehicular Fluid Spills
Vehicular fluid spills typically involve gasoline spill, diesel spill, transmission fluid, battery acid, oil spill, and similar fluid spills. These spills are relatively small in scale. Additionally, compromised vehicles might release compressed natural gas and propane.
Hazardous Cargo Spills
Hazardous cargo spills are usually larger, more complex, and more dangerous. Depending on the vehicle’s contents and the accident’s nature, these spills might necessitate rapid intervention from roadside spill cleanup services. HazChem’s specialty lies in providing emergency rapid response services for traffic accidents, truck rollovers and similar situations.
Roadway and highway accidents encompass a wide range of traffic accidents:
- Truck accident
- Tanker truck crash
- Cement truck accident
- Semi accident
- Dump truck accident
- Log truck accident
- Garbage truck accident
- Truck Rollover
- Fire truck accident
- Deliver vehicle accident
- Passenger vehicle accidents
These will have varying degrees of danger, complexity and urgency. HazChem has unmatched experience with them all. 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.

Emergency Highway Spill Clean Up
During an incident, the top priority is the safety of workers, the public, and the environment. HAZWOPER-certified first responders rapidly assess conditions and determine the best action while adhering to regulations. Labels on hazardous materials aid in reporting accidents and managing incidents. Once identified, first responders create a detailed mitigation plan for roadside spill cleanup, followed by comprehensive analysis and remediation.
