Subject: Chemical Spill Clean Up Restrictions

All -

We are reviewing our spill clean up guidelines.  I was hoping you could 
answer some questions regarding your policies and practices.

Do you permit staff to clean spills?

Do you have any restrictions based on either the volume/quantity of 
material spilled or the time it would take to clean it up?  For example, 
not allowing staff to clean up liquids spills that exceed a liter or a 
spill that would take 2 people more than an hour to clean?

Do you restrict spill clean up based on the chemical's toxicity or 
reactivity?  For example, not allowing staff to clean spills of acutely 
toxic materials or materials with an NFPA Health rating of 4?
