Can I use universal absorbents for medical spills?

In hospitals and other medical establishments, hazardous substances such as body fluids, cleaning liquids, and other chemicals are constantly present and in close proximity to hundreds of people. As such, it is very important to clean medical spills up as soon as they happen.

Yes, you can use TRADESAFE Universal Absorbents for medical spills but we recommend you get our spill kits as they contain PPE (gloves and eye protection goggles) and haz-mat disposal bags. 

Depending on the type of medical hazardous liquid you are going to clean up, please use additional PPE such as face shields and respirators to keep yourself safe.
