In Departments like Sterilising Services and cleaning rooms in Endoscopy and Day Procedure there can be a number of different chemicals. Some of these chemicals will be Acidic and others Alkaline, both of which are equally hazardous. A dedicated spill kit is absolutely required ensuring that neutralisation of the spilt chemical is being carried out. For your Acidic Chemicals our Acidic Chemicals Spill Clean-up Kit is the perfect kit to have on hand should an Acidic spill occur by providing a safe and efficient clean-up.
Our Australian MEDSpill kits are colour coded for easy identification. The bright blue spill kit box indicates it is a chemical spill kit which makes it stand out and is nice and easy to find.
Most staff know the chemical brand name being used but wouldn’t have a clue if that chemical is acidic or alkaline. We have a label on the lid of the kit with space to write the brand name of the acidic chemicals being used in that Department. This makes it quick and easy for staff to identify the correct chemical spill kit to use in the time critical event of an acidic chemical spill. The lid label also has the expiry date for your kit and on the side of the kit there is a full contents list. The contents list makes it easy to carry out regular auditing of your spill kits to ensure they are complete and ready for use. It is important to note that all chemical kits are single use. If you have followed the clean-up protocol correctly, you will not have any left overs therefore, a full replacement kit needs to be purchased.
The Acidic Chemicals Spill Clean-up Kit is designed to clean up 5 litres of Acidic Chemicals; that is a chemical with a pH less than 7.
Your kit also comes with a booklet which contains key information about the kit such as SDS for the contents and a spare copy of the clean-up protocol.
Spill Kit Contents
Every chemical is different with its own risks and considerations relating to the appropriate PPE and safe clean-up. A general chemical kit isn’t good enough! Absorbent booms and sand is not going to deal with the chemical vapours and corrosive action. If possible – always neutralise the chemical.
When you open up your Acidic Chemicals Spill Clean-up Kit you will find an easy to follow step-by-step clean-up protocol and a floor sign to advise there has been a fluid spill and to proceed in the area with caution.
We have Acid Lok Neutralising and Solidifying Powder to neutralise the Acidic Chemical while solidifying the spill for easier clean-up and to prevent spreading.
Our Acidic Chemicals Spill Clean-up Kit contains the appropriate PPE to protect the staff member cleaning up the spill. When selecting the PPE appropriate to this kit, we have consulted SDS for various Acidic Chemicals such as Peracetic Acid along with selecting high quality PPE to ensure best practice.
Once spill clean-up is complete, we even put the appropriate waste bag in there to ensure correct and appropriate disposal.
We spend a lot of time and effort in putting together highly effective and first quality spill clean-up kits so that you don’t have to!
