This is RSK Response

Experienced and dedicated; led by the latest research and technology

RSK Response is a UKSpill accredited company offering 24/7 coverage to provide rapid on-site assessment of environmental pollution incidents. Its parent company, RSK, has almost 30 years’ experience in providing incident responses to the private and public sectors through its UK office network, depots and in-house laboratories, and helping to create tailored solutions for its clients. We provide a cost-effective and immediate response to contain, assess, recover and remediate the effects of pollution incidents. We aim to support clients throughout the process, minimise their financial and corporate costs, lead the clean-up process and liaise with regulators, authorities and stakeholders.

Every company and facility should have an effective environmental incident response plan. By incorporating an external response team into your company’s framework, we can help to mitigate and minimise the potential financial, reputational or legal impacts of a spill. This not only helps to reduce risks that may affect human health but also protects the environment and property. We can lead the entire process, from the initial site assessment, containment and control of the pollution incident, and the recovery, remediation and reinstatement of the site through to regulatory reporting, liaison and approvals. We support our clients throughout an incident and provide regular and detailed reporting throughout and on completion of our investigations.
