Biosafety Spill Kit

What goes in a Biosafety Spill kit?

  • Signage: To inform other personnel of the spill and proved contact information

  • PPE: Include gloves, safety glasses and a lab coat/disposable smock

  • Brush and Dustpan: To collect broken glass or sharp objects. Brush and dustpan should be decontaminated or disposed of after use. Tongs/forceps are also important for picking up items and broken glass

  • Absorbent paper towels

  • Red biohazard bags

Place all items in a durable leak-proof container with a lid (which can be used for transport of waste afterwards, if needed)

Although 10% Clorox bleach is recommended as a standard disinfectant in the spill kit, other suitable disinfectants may be used. Please discuss with biosafety if an alternative disinfectant is warranted.
