High-Hazard Chemicals

High Hazard Chemicals

Veolia's reactive technicians are specially trained and qualified to manage all types of high-hazard chemicals. These chemicals typically include any chemical that is a health hazard, flammable and/or reactive. We have developed procedures for handling each of these categories of chemicals. Specialized equipment, planning and training are required to work with all of these materials.

CUSTOMIZED SERVICES

For each situation, we assess the potential dangers to determine the safest, fastest method of removing the high-hazard chemicals. Veolia uses a variety of technologies to remove these chemicals from your site. Our technicians have been trained to employ safety precautions in eliminating any possibility of danger. The chemicals are removed in special containers, if appropriate, to remote locations for stabilization and identification. All of our technicians and supervisors attend training classes that exceed OSHA’s requirements.
