Spillage of bodily fluids can pose a large risk to both people and the environment. A spill kit is comprised of various absorbent tools that should be used when there is a leak or spillage of a bodily fluid. They are designed to stop the spillage from spreading further and help start a cleanup process.

Spill kits must only be used in emergencies. Most are comprised of the same base products, which are PPE, materials to stop leakages, waste bags and materials to seal drains. Some workplaces may have multiple sizes and multiple purpose spill kits. 

When you encounter a spill, the first and most important thing is to protect yourself first. Our Spill Kit Training for Bodily Fluids course looks at what a spill kit comprises of, when it’s needed and the procedure to follow when you encounter a spill.

Spill Kits (Bodily Fluids) Course Content

1. Spill kits

Spill kits are the first response to spills. They provide what’s needed to clean up a spill. Having them on hand means that spills can be dealt with quickly and effectively in a safe and hygienic manner. This is vital with this type of spill as bodily fluids are potentially infectious.

It’s important that you know where to find them and how to use them.

2.  Dealing with a Spill

Your organisation may have its own specific spill response procedure, that describes what you should do in the event of a spill and tells you who you should contact. If your organisation has one, then make sure you read it, so you know what you have to do and who you have to tell.
