The Dangers of Oil Tanker Spills
There are many dangers associated with the transportation of toxic liquids such as petroleum and other chemical compounds. Unfortunately, each year oil spills from train derailments and tankers going off the road cause the need for environmental cleanup, which needs to be done as quickly as possible. Potential dangers associated with oil spills, include:
- Soil and water contamination
- Danger to wildlife
- Danger to humans, causing evacuation in the event of an emergency
