So, you just bought a spill kit. High five! Now what?
First, put your kit where you're likely to have a spill and make sure you can see and get to it easily.
Next, open your kit and take a look at what's inside. We pack the socks, booms, mats, pillows and other supplies in the order you need them so that you can respond quickly.
Finally, create a plan that outlines who will respond to spills and what procedures they will follow. The steps below will get you started:
Step 1: Confine the spill
Create a barrier around the outside of the spill with the socks or booms.
Step 2: Stop the flow
Find where the liquid is coming from and shut down the source.
Step 3: Clean up the mess
Working from the outside to the inside of the spill, use the absorbents in the kit to clean up.
Step 4: Dispose of used absorbents
Secure the saturated absorbents in the yellow temporary disposal bags provided in your spill kit and dispose of them in accordance with all local, state and federal regulations.
