A spill kit is an essential safety item for all laboratories. EHS provides a basic spill kit to each laboratory that contains the following items:
Absorbent material (pads, sheets, or spill socks)
Boundary marking tape
Red biohazard autoclave bags
The spill supplies are stored in a labeled 5 gallon pail with a screw top lid, which can be used to collect waste from the spill as it is being cleaned.
The spill kit does not contain safety goggles, lab coats, or special gloves that may be needed for certain materials. These items should be available in the laboratory where these materials are used.
DO NOT RESPOND TO A SPILL UNLESS YOU HAVE CORRECT SUPPLIES AND PPE.
If you use the spill kit or need additional spill supplies, notify EHS at 703-993-8448 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
