Education and Prevention
The best way to deal with a chemical spill is to be educated. In our Managing Laboratory Chemicals class you will learn aspects such as:
  • Chemical hazards Risk assessment Personal protection Spill clean-up procedures Regulatory requirements

For a proactive audit of your lab safety program and chemical spill readiness, call 206.543.0467.
Chemical Spill Basics
Hazardous material spills that do not endanger workers in the immediate area may be cleaned up by area personnel who have been trained and are properly equipped to clean up the spilled material safely. Spill kits are available from University Stores during business hours.
When you need emergency help, do the following:
  • Alert others and evacuate all affected areas. Pull the fire alarm if needed or report the incident to UW police:

Hazardous Chemical Spills S pills in laboratories are almost inevitable. All laboratory occupancies are equipped with generic spill response kits to handle small scale spills. Principal Investigators and Laboratory Supervisors are required to have written procedures to handle spills of specific hazardous materials unique to their research protocols. If you have a spill that is to large to handle, eg. more than one gallon, or a spill involving an extremely hazardous material, please contact the Safety Coordinator, Linda Morin, for immediate assistance.
The Safety Coordinator may be reached at ext. 253 or Pager: 410 586 4328; by email: Alternatively, the Safety Coordinator may be paged by email-page using the address: When using the email-page option, do not use a subject line, delete any signature file and make the message very brief.

Spill Response and Clean-up Procedures
In the event of a chemical spill, the individual(s) who caused the spill is responsible for prompt and proper clean-up. It is also their responsibility to have spill control and personal protective equipment appropriate for the chemicals being handled readily available. See Developing a Spill Response Plan for more information. The following are general guidelines to be followed for a chemical spill. More detailed procedures may be available in your Departmental Chemical Hygiene Plan or Spill Response Plan.
  • Immediately alert area occupants and supervisor, and evacuate the area, if necessary. If there is a fire or medical attention is needed, contact Public Safety at Attend to any people who may be contaminated. Contaminated clothing must be removed immediately and the skin flushed with water for no less than fifteen minutes. Clothing must be laundered before reuse. See First Aid for Chemical Exposures for more information.

    Section 8: Chemical Spills Information about cleaning up chemical spills is available in the Emergency Procedures section of the EHS web page. This section contains information regarding: Pre-planning is essential. Before working with a chemical, the laboratory worker should know how to proceed with spill cleanup and should ensure that there are adequate spill control materials available. Preventing Spills Most spills are preventable. The following are some tips that could help to prevent or minimize the magnitude of a spill:
    • Place chemical containers in a hood or lab bench in a manner that reduces the possibility of accidentally knocking over a container. Plan your movements. Look where you are reaching to ensure you will not cause a spill. Follow the procedures outlined for transporting chemicals safely. Place absorbent plastic backed liners on benchtops or in fume hoods where spills can be anticipated. For volumes of liquid larger than what can be absorbed by liners, use trays.

    • Followed the guidelines outlined for safe storage of chemicals.

    Notes and Precautions
    The range and quantity of hazardous substances used in laboratories require preplanning to respond safely to chemical spills. The cleanup of a chemical spill should only be done by knowledgeable and experienced personnel. Spill kits with instructions, absorbents, reactants, and protective equipment should be available to clean up minor spills. A minor chemical spill is one that the laboratory staff is capable of handling safely without the assistance of safety and emergency personnel. All other chemical spills are considered major. Minor Chemical Spill
  • Alert people in immediate area of spill.
  • Wear protective equipment, including safety goggles, gloves, and long-sleeve lab coat.
  • Avoid breathing vapors from spill.
