Incidental spills include all those nuisance leaks, drips and “oops” moments that need to be cleaned up, but that do not necessitate an emergency evacuation or pose a significant safety risk to anyone doing the cleanup.
However, just because an incidental spill is not an emergency doesn’t mean that safety can be disregarded.
Teaching employees how to SPAR (Stop, Protect, Attack and Report) will help keep everyone responding to and near an incidental spill safe.
Every spill is different, and facilities should establish response procedures based upon their risk assessments, levels of training and other site-specific needs. Use the toolbox talk below to help spill responders recall specific procedures for cleaning up spills.
Make It Personal: Point out areas in your facility that have high cases of incidental spills.
