step1.jpg

1) Develop a Contingency Plan Learn more OSHA requires facilities to keep enough spill control products on hand to contain and clean the largest spill possible. Spilfyter® Kits provide a quick response to spills in almost any environment.

ARE YOU IN COMPLIANCE?…OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120(j)(1)(viii) states:

Where major spills may occur, a spill containment program, which is part of the employer’s safety and health program required in paragraph (b) of this section, shall be implemented to contain and isolate the entire volume of the hazardous substance being transferred.

Floors in your workplace should be “maintained in a clean and, so far as possible, a dry condition.” Where wet processes are used, drainage shall be maintained, and false floors, platforms, mats, or other dry standing places should be provided where practicable.
