1.Assess the Risk If possible, identify the material and volume spilled to judge possible effects on people, the environment and property. Refer to the container’s label or MSDS (Material Safety Data
2.Select PPE Use MSDS and other literature to choose Personal Protective Equipment such as gloves and suits. If you can’t identify the liquid and its properties, use the highest level of protection.
3.Confine the Spill Block or divert the spill to avoid water source contamination and ease cleanup. Consider using sorbents as well as non-absorbent barriers.
4.Stop the Source Stopping a spill at its source may mean closing a valve, plugging a leak or setting a container upright.You may also need to transfer liquid out of a damaged container.
5.Implement Cleanup Chemically-compatible sorbents quickly capture spilled liquid. Sorbents won’t change a liquid’s properties, however, so dispose of saturated sorbents as you would the liquid itself. Cleanup may involve placing spill remains in OverPacks or Salvage Drums.
6.Decontaminate To protect the health and safety of responders and others, neutralize or remove and properly dispose of accumulated hazardous materials. This may even include exposed earth.
7.Complete Reports Complete all medical and incident notifications and reports required by your organization, as well as by local, state and Federal requirements.
