CANADA'S MOST READ CANADIAN OWNED & OPERATED CONVENIENCE, RETAIL PETROLEUM AND CARWASH PUBLICATION

PETROLEUM

Petroleum Spill Control

by: John Espley

Do you operate a gas station, carwash or have a parking lot? If the answer is yes, you are vulnerable to a hydrocarbon spill (gas, diesel, oil). The big concern here is a liability. You as the business and property owner can be held responsible for several outcomes. Here at BC Hazmat Management, we have responded to many stores, banks, gas station parking lots and loading areas cleaning up leaks from both customers vehicles and delivery vehicles. In the case of delivery vehicles, the spills can come from the vehicle itself or the product they are delivering (oil, chemicals).

The good news here is that appropriate training and supplies on hand can and will be, your best insurance against injuries and environmental damage. Using the BC Hazmat Management example, in one day we can teach your staff about the possible spills they will encounter, how to help prevent those spills and how to quickly and efficiently respond to the spills when they do happen.

    TORONTO, Ont. - We have turned the corner on harsh winter weather, and spring is here.

    Spring is a time of renewal and refreshment as nature comes back to life, giving friends and family the opportunity to spend more time outdoors. As we trade icicles for flowers and snow angels for pool loungers, the warmer weather brings sights and smells that brighten up our day. Smells of lavender, vanilla, citrus and eucalyptus are just a few of the familiar and inviting scents gifted to us by spring.

    Even though scents of nature fill the springtime air, some people may have too much on their to-do lists to truly relax and enjoy the outdoors. Armor All is now bringing the natural scents of spring directly into your car. The new Essential Blends air fresheners are infused with essential oil blends of lemon bergamot, eucalyptus mint, pink grapefruit, citrus pomegranate and vanilla lavender, giving you the scents of spring wherever you go.

    "The inspiration behind Essential Blends came from looking at the average person's daily to-do list and thinking of how we could make those little in-between moments relaxing," says Megan Currie, Spectrum Brands director of marketing for Armor All. "A lot of people are in their cars for a good portion of their day, whether they are commuting to work or doing errands. We wanted to transform that daily routine into a comforting experience."

    Essential oils are known for their refreshing and restorative properties. Helping to relieve headaches, relax the mind or even energize the body, the benefits from essential oils are endless.
