These spill clean-up procedures are provided in the absence of, however definitely do not replace, any current workplace procedures and policies.

Fast acting LSM Spill Control Bio-Hazard Clean-Up must be applied in conjunction with the proper Spill Kit Response equipment. This equipment will vary widely depending on the nature of the spill and may only require disposable gloves, broom and dust pan (e.g. soft drink, ice cream) but can also include the following Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and accessories (nitrile gloves or disposable gloves, safety glasses or splash goggles, respirator, broom and pan, scoop, disposal bags, bag ties and waste labels, possibly colour-coded). Only individuals with formal spill contents identification and clean-up training are qualified to determine the correct PPE and other spill response equipment. Do not atempt to clean-up any spill unless you can identify it and are trained in the right clean-up Safe Work Procedures. The workplace should contain a designated area with Safety Equipment.

These may include but not exclusively: Vomit, Blood, Urine, Faeces, Rotten food matter

Personal Contamination: If a spilled material has contacted any part of your body, start first aid measures immediately. Move directly to the nearest eyewash or safety shower. Disrobe promptly if clothing is involved. Flush for a minimum of 30 minutes whether eyes or skin are involved. Other persons should assist (you will need help with eye flushing) and seek medical advice as soon as possible.

The spill should be cleaned-up only by a person who has had formal training and, if the spilled material is of low hazard and, if the spill is a litre in volume or less. Review material safety data sheets when appropriate and use the following guidelines.

First, you must decide on whether to evacuate the immediate area of the spill. Make a determination on whether a clean-up can be handled or if assistance is required. Anytime you are unsure about handling the spill yourself, be safe and evacuate the area. Contact emergency response authorities.

Spill Procedures: Small Spills (less than 1 litre) of Biological Spills/Waste
a. Do not attempt to clean-up spill unless formerly trained.
b. Identify the type of spill to determine the correct cleaning procedure. If unsure, call authorities: Site Safety Officer, fire brigade or police.
c. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) including gloves, gown/apron, protective eyewear, and facemask. Do not handle spill fluid or absorbed material.
d. Control access to area. Prevent people from walking through affected area and thereby tracking the potentially infectious material to other areas. Isolate spill and erect appropriate
warning signs and/or barracades. Cordon off spill area with caution tape if present in spill kit.
e. Contact a specially trained foreperson for assistance, if needed.
f. Obtain the LSM Spill Control Bio-Hazard Clean-Up needed to absorb and disinfect spill.
g. Liberally apply LSM Spill Control Bio-Hazard Clean-Up around the perimeter of the spill and then work it toward the centre. Continue to apply until there is no free liquid or liquid
migration. Take care not to create aerosols.
h. Using a suitable scoop/scraper or broom and pan, work LSM 75 into the spill before sweeping into pan/scoop. Take care not to create aerosols.
i. If liquid remains apply more LSM Spill Control Bio-Hazard Clean-Up absorbent until the surface can be swept/scraped clean.
j. Place all absorbed waste and contaminated outer gloves into a suitably identified biohazard bag/container. Use a thick walled, puncture proof plastic bag or leak proof cardboard box if
broken glass orother sharp objects are present in spill area. Do not seal bag.
k. Apply appropriate disinfectant. To avoid creating aerosols, never spray disinfectant directly into spilled material. Instead gently flood affected area first around the perimeter of the spill,
and then work disinfectant slowly into spilled material. Allow a least one minute of contact time with disinfectant.
l. Apply a thin layer of LSM Spill Control Bio-Hazard Clean-Up absorbent over disinfected surface and sweep clean and dry. Place absorbed material into biohazard disposal bag.
