Emergencies Involving Hazardous Materials
Workplaces which utilize hazardous materials or chemicals of any kind must have procedures in place to deal with dangerous situations such as spills or chemical exposures. Developing these procedures in advance can greatly reduce the risk of personnel injury while ensuring maximum safety for all laboratory workers.
Chemical and Radioactive Waste Disposal personnel are trained to assist in the event of a spill, and should be contacted immediately in the event of any major spill or in any case where chemicals may be released to the environment.
Additionally, chemical spill kits are available for all UF labs by calling the main EH&S office at 392-1591 and placing a request for one.
