What are different types of spill kits?

There are several different types of spill kits depending on the liquid that is spilled. To ensure safety and prevent injuries, it is crucial to have a spill kit that can handle the spill effectively. It is also advised to keep multiple kits on site due to the fact that spill kits are a one-time use.

At Creative Safety Supply, we offer the following types of spill kits:

  • Universal Spill Kit: The most common type of spill kit, these kits come in different sizes including 5-gallon, 20-gallon, 30-gallon, 50-gallon, and 90-gallon options. The bigger the size, the bigger a spill it can handle. These kits contain sorbents, pads and pillows to be placed over the spill. Also, usually found in these kits is a variety of PPE like safety gloves, eye goggles, and a disposal bag.
  • HazMat Emergency Spill Kit: This kit is used for spills of hazardous chemicals such as battery acid. It includes bio-hazard sorbents, neoprene gloves, sanitizing surface wipes, and sanitizing hand wipes.
  • Personal Protection Spill Kit: This kit contains different items of personal protective equipment that will protect an employee in the case of a spill. It includes boots, coveralls, gloves, and goggles.
  • Trucker Spill Kit: This spill kit comes in a flexible storage that will be easy to store and transport in a truck. Not necessarily designed for emergencies, these sorbents are ideal for handling fluids from a vehicle.

Most of the spill kits offered have the option to be customized, or we can create a custom spill kit that will fit the needs of any workplace. It will be important to complete a hazard assessment of the workplace to understand what liquids could be spilled. OSHA has set certain requirements for the contents of a spill kit, but adding additional items, like a laminated sheet with spill procedures on it, can be extremely effective.
