Despite the best efforts of instructors to practice safe science in the laboratory, accidents that result in the release of chemicals can occur. For this reason, it is essential all laboratory personnel have a spill response plan that includes appropriate procedures and materials to adequately contain and clean up a chemical spill. The following procedures should be used as a guide to help laboratory personnel design an effective spill control plan for their laboratory. These procedures tell you how to prepare your own spill kit and give you step-by-step instructions for spill cleanup. They also outline when and who to call for assistance.
After all incidents, an incident report should be completed. MCC needs to know about all spill events to protect their employees, try to prevent another event in the future with training, and comply with federal, state and local regulations related to hazardous materials and occupational exposures.
Gloves: Mandatory for all clean-up.
Face mask: Mandatory for all clean-up.
Disposable coveralls: Use when splashing may occur.
Booties: Use when walking on contaminated area is unavoidable.
