What Do Chemical Spill Kits Do?

Should you experience a chemical spillage, it is essential for the safety of you, your staff, and the environment that it get cleaned up thoroughly.
Chemical spill kits are an amalgamation of absorbent materials that work to contain and clear-up any potentially harmful chemical spillages. Our spill kits vary depending on your requirements (you can browse our range of products here), but ultimately, their main aim is to restore the area of the spillage back to a safe, non-hazardous environment.

Our unique chemical spill kit range is available as booms, socks, pillows, absorbent pads or absorbent scatter. You can buy these kits in the form of wheelie bins and carry bags.

If you own a chemical spill kit, you should make sure it is in good condition and hasn’t been damaged by the weather – this may lessen its functionality. Chemical spill kits should be kept in an accessible area, so they can be used efficiently, should a spillage occur.

 

How Do I Know if I Need Chemical Spill Kits?

Whatever your business may be, the likelihood is that you should have a chemical spill kit accessible on your premises. Chemical spill risk areas include refuelling areas and oil and chemical storage areas – areas where you keep cleaning products, fertilisers, or scientific substances for example will all require a chemical spill kit.

This will ensure that any spillages will be cleaned up correctly, removing the risk of further damage being cause to either your property, yourself or your staff. Chemical spill kits are an easy safety precaution to take that could be the difference between leading to more serious problems, and effectively cleaning up the mess and returning to business as usual.
