Decontamination of smaller-scale spillage


 

For smaller-scale spillage use protective equipment and technical assistance as necessary.

  • Solid substances are placed in buckets or plastic sacks. Fluid spill is sucked up using absorption material (vermikulite) and placed in buckets or plastic sacks.
  • Then dry the area with paper dampened with soap solution.
  • Waste is processed in accordance with regulations for management of chemical waste i.e. if what was spilled is considered to be hazardous waste, all absorption material, drying paper etc. must also be regarded as hazardous waste. Any questions? Contact the official responsible for hazardous waste in each organisation.

Also inform miljösamordnaren/motsvarande at the workplace, and follow beyond ordinary routines for accidents and incident reporting.
