In the event of a chemical spill, the individual(s) who caused the spill is responsible for prompt and proper clean up. It is also their responsibility to have spill control materials and the appropriate personal protective equipment readily available to clean up a spill of the chemicals being handled.

If the spill is too large or too hazardous for the individual(s) who caused the spill to clean up, they should call 911. Calling 911 will dispatch the Logan City Hazmat team, who will then clean up the spill. The individual(s) who caused the spill should be available to assist the hazmat responders with information as to the type, quantity, and location of the spill.

The Environmental Health and Safety Office can provide training on how to clean up a small chemical spill and provide assistance in selecting the proper spill control materials and personal protective equipment to have available.
