Buying spill kits for your company

If you work with hazardous chemicals and liquids, you need to make sure that you are fully prepared for inevitable spills. Chemicals in your workplace are sure to be spilled at some point, so it’s essential that you have spill kits for emergency situations.

When buying spill kits, you need to make sure that you get one which will clear up the spillage properly. In addition to this, you also need to consider the type of liquids which are used in your company, as not all types of absorbents can be used for all types of liquids.

What are the different types of spill kits

Universal kits are commonly used, as they can absorb a wide range of liquids. On the other hand, only oil kits help to absorb any oil-related substances. Hazmat kits are perfect for absorbing dangerous or hazardous liquids. You will also find special spill kits which help to clear up materials such as mercury and battery acid.

You need to consider the actual size of spills which could potentially occur. For smaller spills, you can opt for bagged or bucket kits, and for larger spills go for wheeled cart kits or drum spilled kits.

If you need to deal with dangerous materials then make sure that your spill kits include safety gears such as goggles, gloves and masks.
