DO NOT underestimate the hazards associated with a chemical spill.
A MAJOR CHEMICAL SPILL is considered a spill which poses a health or safety hazard to others, the environment, or the facilities.
A MINOR CHEMICAL SPILL refers to (1) a quantity and type of material which the employee normally works with; (2) where outside resources are not needed and where others, the environment, or the facilities are not at risk; and (3) the spill can be cleaned up with appropriate spill clean-up procedures for this chemical. Clean-up of the material spilled should proceed only if the employee can identify the chemical and has been trained concerning the hazards of the chemical. *
