Biohazard spills must be contained and cleaned up immediately. To do this, a universal spill kit, a biological hazard spill kit, or an oil spill kit is usually used to absorb and clean up the spill. However, there are six substances that require specific tools or procedures in the cleaning process. It is important to remember to review the safety fact sheets and OSHA guidelines on these specific chemicals if you have any questions or concerns.
After the spill has been cleaned up, all cleaning materials should be disposed of as biohazard waste in the red Rubbermaid containers.
