Chemical Spill Kit Contents

Spill supplies should be located in facilities, chemistry, biology, and art laboratories. Technical laboratories should also have access to spill supplies. Every laboratory that uses chemicals must have access to spill supplies. Spill supplies should be strategically located around work areas in fixed locations so they will be easily accessible. Although most spill supplies are common items which may be found throughout the lab, they should be consolidated for emergency use.

Absorbent material (D-Vour, etc.) can be restocked or obtained through the custodial storage at 1601 Prospect.

Mercury Spill Kits and pH Test Strips are available within each facilities services department. Contact facilities on your campus when necessary for these items.
