Prevent spills from becoming hazards with Spill Kits

 In Articles

So you’ve got your spill kit, it’s ready to be used to stop spills in their tracks – but how do you get the most out of it?

Designed to clean up all kinds of spills in the moment they happen, Spill Kits use a combination of mats, pillows – and in the case of SpillFix kits – granular absorbent to deal with spills. SpillFix Spill Kits can be used in a variety of ways to prevent spills become safety hazards, even before a spill has occurred.

Whether you work in a warehouse, use manufacturing machinery, manage a gas station or water treatment plant, there are more ways to use a spill kit effectively than to wait for a spill to occur and clean it up.

AT THE BASE OF MACHINES

USE MATS AT THE BASE OF MACHINES

Machines are a common place for spills to occur, and often drip or leak even when working normally. For every day safety, place mats to cover the work floor area. In the case of major leaks and spills, place a boom sock around the base of machines to prevent the leak from spreading. Before replacing your mats, you should clean the floor area with SpillFix granular absorbent to prevent slips and falls.

COMBINE GRANULAR ABSORBENT WITH BOOM SOCKS

USE SPILLFIX GRANULAR ABSORBENT FOR A SLICK-FREE RESULT

Apply SpillFix granular absorbent to your spill and once the waste liquid is absorbed, clean up the granular absorbent and remove the boom sock. Sweep or vacuum the area and replace any mats required – then get back to work!

CATCH DRIPS

CLEAN HARD-TO-REACH PLACES

Use SpillFix pillows and mats in those hard-to-reach places under machines to maintain a clean & safe workspace for your operator. Before replacing, clean the floor area with SpillFix granular to prevent slips and falls.

CLEAN HARD-TO-REACH PLACES

CATCH DRIPS

SpillFix pillows or mats are ideal to catch any drips in areas where they may occur. When using a tray, fill it with 1 inch (deep) of SpillFix granular absorbent, then place a pillow or pad over it. This makes for easy replacement & cleaning.
