Chemical spill response kits

If you use chemicals at your industrial site, you will need to take precautions in the event of a spill.

Chemicals can be highly toxic and as such, each substance you use should have its own risk assessment attached. This risk assessment should let staff know how to handle the chemical and what to do should they become exposed to this chemical. This system will reduce risk to staff members and let them know the dangers when using this substance or compound.

If a chemical does leak, it’s important to have the right type of spill response equipment in place to clean up the spill and eliminate the danger caused by the spill. To do this you can find all sorts of spill control equipment available to tackle chemical spills.

Chemical spill absorbents

Absorbent pads, pillows, mats and socks are available that have been especially manufactured to clean up spills. These are available in different sizes and with different absorbency levels.

Chemical neutralising agent

When the spill is soaked up using an absorbent, a neutralising agent needs to be used on the spill area to render any residue harmless. Chemical neutralisers are available in either acid, alkali or bleach forms.
