ENVIRONMENTAL SPILL CONTROL TERMS
What is a spill control kit?
This is an essential component of any spill response plan. Having spill kits (supplies) on hand in areas where hazardous materials are used is good practice. Consideration given to the design of a spill kit will pay dividends especially when personnel are briefed on how to use them.
Spill containment is where spills of chemicals, oils, sewage etc. are contained within a barrier or drainage system rather than being allowed to escape off site thus causing external contamination issues. The use of spill kits and drain blockers are components in dealing with containment of spills.
