Spill Assessment

Spill Assessment

The source of the spill will often need to be addressed before risks can be assessed, appropriate PPE equipment specified and a cleanup procedure initiated.

PPE Equipment

PPE Equipment

Once you have assessed the liquid spill, including potential hazards to staff and equipment, your next step should be to select the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) for your responders addressing the spill.

Cleanup Procedures

Clean up Products and Procedures

Once the liquid spill has been assessed, potential hazards to staff and equipment identified and the appropriate PPE equipment provided to your designated responders based on the product’s safety data sheets (SDS) the next step in your spill response plan should be to begin the clean up process.

Reporting

Spill Reporting

Once a spill has been identified, assessed and addressed using the correct PPE equipment and procedures based on the product’s SDS you may be legally obligated to report the spill to your local authority.
