Containment is a critical concept in environmental protection and construction, referring to strategies and structures implemented to enclose or control pollutants, hazardous materials, and other unwanted substances. The primary purpose is to isolate these contaminants to prevent pollution of the surrounding air, soil, water, and to safeguard public health and safety.
The implementation of containment is a proactive approach to environmental management, ensuring that potential pollutants are managed effectively. It is particularly important in industries and construction sites where there is a risk of spills, leaks, or dissemination of hazardous materials.
