Spill Containment Kits for All Locations

Being ready for an accident or emergency will be a major part of your COSHH risk assessment. Identifying potential hazards in your workplace will give you a good understanding of what type of substances might need to be cleared up and whether spills or leaks are likely to be small or large scale. Using this information, you can decide what type and how much spill control material you need. When performing a risk assessment, you should always refer to the HSE’s regulations and guidance on Emergency Response and Spill Control.
Using a spill kit relevant to your site will ensure you have sufficient stock of the correct items. Our spill containment kits come in all sizes and configurations, suitable for emergency situations and routine maintenance. We also stock spill kits for laboratories and spill kits for schools. Our Spill Kit Granules for example, are multipurpose and can be used for a wide variety of spills.
For immediate response at storage or workstation locations, our emergency spill kits can be used. Our disposable spill kits are available for most liquids and include absorbent materials, personal protective equipment, (PPE) disposal bags and instructions.
Larger kits are also available for bigger spills or where the risk is greater. A mobile trolley spill kit can be held in a central location or cleaner’s cupboard and easily transported as required. Featuring internal shelves to keep supplies organised, a kit of this type will help towards a much efficient clean up.

Specialised Spill Response Kits and Equipment

Spill kits for vehicles

Vehicles carrying hazardous substances should always carry spill control equipment with them. Several kits are available for that specific purpose, including the ADR vehicle spill kit. Offering everything you’ll need when out and about, the kit can be packed away into a handy bag that fits under or behind the driver’s seat. This spill kit bag is packaged in a durable, transparent bag, allowing for easy recognition of the products and tools in the kit, while also preventing any moisture from creeping into the kit and limiting the absorbent’s abilities.
These kits also come in three different categories:

  • Chemical

  • Maintenance/Universal

  • Oil-Only

This ensures that you can always be prepared for a spill.

Mini spill kits

Sometimes a smaller spill kit is all you need – the Mini Disposable Spill Kit is an economic and efficient way to absorb small amounts of chemicals, dangerous liquids, water-based fluids and oil-based fluids. The mini spill kit is entirely disposable and includes a disposable brush to sweep up broken glass or other debris and therefore minimise the risk of injury. This small kit has a 1.7 litre absorption capacity and it can be easily mounted to a wall. When the kit is mounted to a wall, it can be easily recognised in the event of a workplace spill.

Mobile spill kits

Seton offers a number of mobile spill kits so that you can quickly handle spills in your workplace, no matter the size.
The largest of the mobile spill kits is the Spill Truck. This truck is wheeled to ensure an efficient response to workplace spills and the hard-plastic container ensures that moisture is kept out of the spill absorbents – this means that the absorbents will be more effective against spills. The spill kits contents are also lightweight to promote speed when moving the truck.
If you are looking for something more chic which can provide a fast response to any medium-sized spills, then the Mobile Trolley Spill Kit is perfect for your workplace. This compact trolley is fully stocked with everything you need for oil-only spills in its internal shelves and compartments. This trolley is also weather-resistant and will keep out moisture and dirt away from the spill socks, pillows and rolls stored inside.
However, if your workplace only requires a small, mobile kit, or perhaps a series of small kits, then the Economy Wheeled Spill Kit is an ideal option. These smaller bins have easy-to-use wheels so that they can be quickly taken to where they are needed most. They are also ideal for using in work sites, workshops, warehouses or factories. Each of these spill kit bins has an 80 litre absorbency capacity and is packed with everything you need along with necessary safety equipment such as goggles, gloves and barrier tape.

Spill Containment: Buying Guide

Creating an Emergency Plan

The Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations 2015 deal with emergencies such as spills and leaks in larger locations and lay out clear guidelines on how to create an emergency response plan. Although most businesses aren’t large enough to worry about complying with COMAH, it is always a good idea to know what must be done and who should do it if an incident occurs. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 state that anyone working with dangerous materials should include emergency planning as part of their risk assessment and ongoing monitoring.

  • Any emergency response plan should be simple and achievable, take into account any foreseeable occurrences and outline the following:

  • Spill Containment and control – Leaks and spills must be dealt with quickly and appropriately. Ensure spill response equipment is readily available and well stocked.

  • Protection Provision – Any kind of accident has potential repercussions for staff and the environment. The correct personal protection equipment (PPE) and items such as berms and drain covers which prevent leaked materials from entering the drainage system, must be used when required.

  • COSHH Training – Staff must be trained on how to deal with incidents and what the potential hazards are for each material used. They must also know when to deal with a problem and when it would be more appropriate to call the emergency services.

  • Evacuation Procedures – If all or part of your premises must be emptied of people, simple guidelines on how this should happen and clear signage need to be in place.

  • Waste Disposal – When leaks and spills have been contained and controlled it is imperative they are disposed of in the correct manner, using suitable waste management equipment.

Once you have a plan in place it should be monitored and practiced regularly to ensure it remains compatible with your business processes.

Spill Control FAQs

What kind of spill kits do I need?

When reviewing spill kits, it is important to keep in mind the kinds of spills that your workplace could experience. The different spills, including Chemical, Oil-Only and Maintenance, all require a different response, different products and different disposal. If your worksite stores chemicals, it is important to also be aware of the HSE’s best practices for chemical warehousing.

How many spill kits do I need?

This is an important question which you can determine through your workplace risk assessment. To plan and conduct an appropriate risk assessment, you can refer to the HSE’s guidance on spill management and control.
It is not enough to stock your workplace or truck fleet with spill kits. You also need to educate all of your workers about how to use, store and dispose of spill kits properly. If your workers know the PPE they need to wear, the spill kit they need to use, and the proper use and disposal of absorbents, your workplace will be a much safer, well prepared place.

Will I need extra spill control supplies?

When working with harmful liquids, spill containment equipment must always be present on your site. It is therefore a good idea to have an additional standby kit or hold some extra stocks of absorbent materials so they can be instantly replaced. Kits will always include PPE, but again it is advisable to have extra supplies of items, such as gloves, so they can be replaced as required. Where your risk assessment has deemed there to be a chance of a larger incident, chemical resistant clothing is a must. It may not seem important, but when a spill happens, it is of the utmost importance that everyone cleaning the spill has immediate access to the requisite PPE.

How do I maintain my spill kit?

When using reusable kits, it is important to keep a careful inventory of the products that have been used, and which have not yet been replaced. In addition to replacing used materials, it is also important to make sure that your spill kits are protected from the elements and are placed in easy-to-access, visible places.

What else will I need to deal with accidental leaks?

As well as holding sufficient stocks of spill control apparatus as outlined above, you will also want to be prepared by having a good supply of personal protective equipment. Keeping separate cleaning equipment such as mops and buckets is a good idea to prevent cross-contamination and floor stands will alert staff to slip and trip hazards. Because of the potential for injury when accidents occur, you should always have a fully-stocked first aid kit on site.

What other accidental hazards should I be aware of?

As well as liquid spills, large build-ups of any residual items can become a problem. Use industrial vacuum cleaners to deal with dust deposits and ensure all areas are well ventilated to prevent gas vapours from collecting and potentially forming hazardous compounds.
