Chemical spill kit guidance

Chemical Spill Kit


Chemical spill kits must be readily available in the laboratory and lab personnel trained on how to use the kit in the event of an accidental release.

All personnel who work in a laboratory are expected to be prepared to clean up spills that are likely to occur in their work areas. 

Be sure that each lab member knows the location of the spill kit in the lab and is familiar with UCR policy regarding spill control.

Standard kits include acid/base neutralizers, spill pads, collection equipment and personal protective equipment. 


Chemical spill kits can be customized to meet the potential risks associated with the materials used in the laboratory.



Complete spill kits and accessories are available at the campus storehouse.
