Having spill kits in your facility is not only a safety measure for your workplace, but also a legal requirement that you have to meet. As such, it is important that you make sure that if you have these products in your work area, you have to be able to take good care of them to ensure continuing safety and efficiency. If you need pointers on how you should approach that, remember these.
Streamline your methodologies
Spill kits in Australia or in other areas are one of the most essential tools that you can have, and they should be harnessed to their full potential through methods that are aimed at ensuring their optimal product quality throughout their lifespan. A good place to start is to take a look at your current methodologies that involve the products and evaluating whether they are fine-tuned to accommodate maximum efficiency and safety. For example, the location of your gas bottle cages and kits must be such that access to them in case of an emergency should not be difficult, but it should also not get in the way of your normal operation. Similarly, if you have specific people chosen to manage the kits, they must have the training and updated training that they need to make sure that every important information about the kit is made available to them.
Design a good emergency response programme
Your spill kits will not be able to do their job without a comprehensive emergency response plan. So when you design yours, make sure that it is not only good, but also sustainable. What this means is that your response programme should feature all the necessary inclusions of a good programme, and carrying them out must always be possible at any time, in your operations. For instance, everyone in your team should know what they need to do in case of spillage, and there should be clear direction on what should be done first in such an event, who will do them, and what everyone else will do.
Ask for guidance from your spill kits resource
Finally, do not hesitate to ask for recommendations and pointers from the company where you bought your spill kits and chemical storage cabinets and bins. Manufacturers, in particular, can give you everything that you need so that you can harness the full power of the kits; their manual, for instance, is among the most important documentation that you can use to equip your facility for optimal functionality.
