Spill Response Kit Overview
Spill response kits are great in the event of bodily fluid or hazardous chemical spills. These convenient kits are packaged to offer products that provide superior protection against harmful contaminants.
Some spill response kits include very general, protective items to ensure that no chemicals or fluids come in contact with the skin, eyes, or mouth. Other spill response kits provide a more comprehensive variety of products including solidifiers, which mix with the spill to create a more solid mass that is easier to clean.
There are spill response kits used primarily in the medical world for cleanup of blood spills or chemotherapy drugs. Others can be used in laboratory settings and some are designed for cleanup of specific chemicals including formaldehyde and mercury.
Spill response kits can be very useful for schools, school buses, bus companies, physician’s offices, daycare centers, exercise gyms, popular shopping centers, or even at home. Spill response kits are essential for areas with high concentrations of people and an ever-present possibility of dangerous hazardous waste spills.
Spill response products can also be purchased individually. Latex or nitrile gloves are easily accessible and a general paper towel or cloth can help clean up some spills. Red-Z Solidifier is a unique and safe product produced by Safetec of America. This chemical compound is highly efficient at taking liquids and turning them into a squishy gel-like substance that cuts down on cleaning time and increases the amount of hazardous waste that can be cleaned up.
A spill response kit can make home life and work life safer, with less chance of contracting germs or reacting to hazardous chemicals, and waste. Spill response kits can come prepackaged and specifically organized, or they can be created by hand to assist with a user’s individual needs.
