3 Steps to Managing Toxic Chemical Leaks or Dangerous Messes
When you read or hear the words “toxic chemical spill,” you probably think of large-scale oil spills or other major industrial disasters. However, people in virtually any workplace are at risk of being exposed to dangerous substances, especially when there is a leak, spill, explosion, or machinery malfunction of some kind.
As soon as you detect the presence, leakage, or abundance of poisonous materials in your workplace, there are a few things you must do as soon as possible:
- Communicate the existence of a chemical safety hazard. Talk to your boss, your fellow employees, and anyone else in your building or vicinity whose safety depends on steering clear of the dangerous chemicals in question. If anyone has already been harmed or exposed, make sure they seek medical attention immediately. Call 911 and discuss your situation with emergency responders to gain instructions regarding evacuation, helping exposed persons, etc.
- Contain and control the hazard. As much as you are able, prevent the spill or leak from continuing, if you can do so without jeopardizing your own health. This may look like turning a valve, turning off heat, laying down towels to prevent the spill from spreading, or otherwise minimizing the potential for the hazard to become more extensive or threatening to the health people in the vicinity.
- Connect with an emergency cleaning service. Ensuring your safety and the future safety of those who enter your space means doing everything possible to make sure dangerous chemical messes are cleaned up quickly and completely. In the event of a serious mess, this may be very challenging to do on your own.
