Our equipment and service vehicles come equipped with spill kits, shovels and fire extinguishers as specified per project. If there is a specific environmental request, such as a wash station for example, we can build them to your specifications at a pre agreed amount. Lakeside adheres to manufacturers bearing time on all components, helping to avoid component failures and leaks and downtime. When required, near river crossings or water courses, we use only bio-oil in our equipment. We supply oilers on the ground at all times to inspect for leaks and our mechanics adhere to equipment daily log books and work with the oilers to ensure our equipment is top notch and leak free. If a failure should occur, we come fully equipped with a field response unit on site with contaminated material holding bins.
We believe an integral part of our success depends on our ability to mitigate the impact of, and adapt our business to, changing climatic conditions. Our carbon footprint covers our entire fleet, buildings and yards, and we believe the single best way we can positively impact the environment is by continuously improving our fleet operating efficiency and reducing our carbon footprint.
