6.1 Purpose and Location

6.1.1 Purpose

  • EHS provides spill carts intended to assist the BET in address chemical spills in their areas. Though useable for chemical spills within laboratory areas in their departments, the spill cart is not intended to replace laboratory obligations to maintain their own in-lab spill kits.
  • Each BET will receive one or more spill carts. The number of carts given to the BET will be determined by several factors including total size of the area of responsibility, number of areas in which spills may occur, and the types of hazardous material stored or used in the area.

6.1.2 Location

Spill cart location is determined by the BET. EHS suggests a well-known location that is easily accessible to all members of the BET.
