IU Environmental Health and Safety maintains an onsight Emergency Response Team for chemical spills. The team is made up of members of the IUEHS waste management and lab safety groups.
The team responds to spills of all sizes to evaluate the situation and determine if it can be handled in-house or if outside responders from the Northern Monroe Fire Territory Hazardous Materials Response Unit should be called. Our experts may authorize knowledgeable and trained personnel to clean up some spills on their own.
All spills must be reported to IUEHS -- we recommend using the Spill Followup Report. We also recommend printing the Chemical Spill Response Guide in the Quick Links, and posting it in your chemical storage or work area.
