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.
