What are the OSHA requirements for spill kits?
Spill kits must include components that meet OSHA standards for proper decontamination. There are different types of absorbent supplies and every workplace must always have the right absorbents for specific chemical or substance spills. Furthermore, OSHA published HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard), which highlights the accepted standards when working with hazardous substances. Though the spill containment process cannot be generally standardized because it varies from workplace to workplace, industries are required to observe HAZWOPER in any dealings with hazardous substances.
