Yes we do. We have large spill remission boxes in our one chem lab, about 50 lbs. each, for acid, base and organic solvents, as well as a small kit , about 5 lbs. each of the same in the chemical stockroom, and we purchased and provided a small kit to our custodial staff, and gave info on where to purchase same to various other departments. We are a small 2 year technical college in Wisconsin.

I am trying to gauge if folks provide chemical spill kits in labs. When you respond if you could indicate whether or not you work in academia vs. industry.
