There's no rule of thumb, but this is a good ACS document to take you through the decision-making process.
Someone asked me how large of a spill they could clean up themselves without calling our internal emergency spill team. I realize it depends a lot on what was spilled, but let's assume it is something nasty like methylene chloride or benzene. Is there
a good rule of thumb for how large of a spill (outside a hood) can be cleaned up safely?
