What does Customs Support’s Safety department do?
Our safety department has nothing to do with our customs clearance service, and is a separate business line. We operate in the Netherlands, providing a safe working space and experienced hands for measuring and ventilating dangerous gases.
Expanding Our Gas Measurement Services Portfolio
Next to a highly experienced and knowledgeable team, we have also added a new service to our portfolio. With the addition of GOC Rotterdam we now also offer a unique drive-in measurement and degassing station in the Port of Rotterdam. At the new drive-in facility at Nieuwesluisweg 200 in Rotterdam customers can drop off containers from 6:00 in the morning until 19:00 in the afternoon. Gas measurement and degassing take place between 6:00 and 19:00.
One of the most commonly found dangerous gases is Formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a colourless gas with a sharp and irritating smell. It's noticeable even in low concentrations, and regular exposure can lead to serious health issues. Common complaints after coming into contact with formaldehyde are headaches, irritations to the skin. Prolonged or frequent exposure to formaldehyde can lead to asthma and even cancer.
