We have spill kits for all our labs (acid, base. Solvent, oil, pillows, loose sorbent, mercury kits, as needed in each lab) and large stashes of spill supplies around the building in case of outside spill. WE also maintain a Emergency Spill Response team with 40 hr HAZWOPER able to respond with level B (SCBA) gear to anything our lab workers can't handle with the spill kits on hand.

Academia, small liberal arts private college, approximately 1200-1400
students in residence.
We provide spill kits in each lab with absorbent pads/pillows, kitty
litter, sand, baking soda, citric acid, mercury spill kit (for that random
thermometer you occasionally find), gloves, disposal bags, hand broom and
dust pan, a permanent marker and a spill kit usage laminated card. We
also have a first aid kit, broken glass box, and a long handled broom and
pan. Students provide their own goggles, we provide gloves and aprons.
Safety equipment includes fire extinguisher, safety shower, eyewash and in
some older labs a fire blanket. Oh, an all chemistry labs have hoods.

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.
