This Spill Kit Training for Bodily Fluids Training course aims to teach you best practices when handling spillages of bodily fluids. It covers the best way to prevent spillages and how to use the equipment safely. We also look at the potential risks associated with these hazardous spills.
- Learn about what a spill kit for bodily fluids contains
- Learn how to effectively deal with a spill and the procedure that you should follow (depending on your workplace policy)
- Understand and show your commitment to The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) 2002
Spill kits are the first response to spills. They provide what’s needed to clean up a spill. Having them on hand means that spills can be dealt with quickly and effectively in a safe and hygienic manner. This is vital with this type of spill as bodily fluids are potentially infectious.
It’s important that you know where to find them and how to use them.
Your organisation may have its own specific spill response procedure, that describes what you should do in the event of a spill and tells you who you should contact. If your organisation has one, then make sure you read it, so you know what you have to do and who you have to tell.
