Hazardous Spills in the Manufacturing Industry

Not all roles in the manufacturing industry may have to deal with hazardous chemicals, but many workers in manufacturing still do.

Hazardous chemicals are needed in the manufacturing of various products such as glass and electronics and the maintenance of the factories themselves.

Because it is such a staple part of the workload, we cannot avoid unforeseen instances of spillages.

But that’s okay!

What’s important is that we know how to react accordingly and to prevent them from happening again.

We can start by learning more about hazardous chemicals.

Hazardous chemicals are substances that may cause dangers to a person’s health or environment. Generally, they may exist as solids, liquids, gas, or plasma.

For this course, we will be focusing on hazardous chemicals in liquid form.

Despite their dangerous nature, hazardous chemicals are still needed in many manufacturing processes.

Common hazardous chemicals in the manufacturing industry come in the form of "flammables, corrosives, oils, solvents, explosives, and combustibles".

Cleaning Solutions They are used for cleaning equipment and the factory.

Battery Acid Also known as sulfuric acid, this is used in the manufacturing of many products such as fertilizer and detergents.

Ethanol This is a highly flammable material used in making products such as drugs, plastic, and cosmetics.

Spill Prevention

Prevention is an often overlooked but significant way to avoid spillages. Learn more about hazardous chemical spill prevention through this lesson.

Ensure careful handling This can be done through the following actions:

Wearing proper PPE Different chemicals might require different PPEs. Make sure that the PPE you are wearing is appropriate for the chemical at hand.

Observing proper transportation protocols When transporting chemicals from one place to another, make sure that the appropriate materials and equipment are used to avoid spills.

Following proper decanting protocols Decanting is the process of pouring or moving chemicals from one container to another. Click on the button below to identify proper decanting protocols.

Spill Control

Spills can happen in the workplace at any moment, but the important thing is to know how to react quickly and appropriately. Learn more about hazardous chemical spill control through this lesson.

Identify the appropriate procedure Different chemicals require different procedures. Consult the safety manual to execute the correct procedure for the spill.

Prepare PPE and Spill Kits After identifying the correct procedure, prepare your PPE and spill kit. Make sure that the PPE and spill kit are appropriate for the chemicals involved.

Procedures, PPE, and spill kits differ depending on the spill.

Clean-up the site Using the sorbent pads, gently wipe the spill until all of the chemical solution has been absorbed. When all the solution has been thoroughly absorbed, place all used pads, hose, and PPE inside the disposal bag. Make sure that the disposal bag is tightly sealed before disposing in the container or bin provided.
