Spill kits containing materials such as leak-sealing putty, over-drums, drain seals, oil or chemical absorbents and personal protective equipment (PPE) should be on site. These should be located both within or near the storage area and remote from it (in case during an event it is not possible to reach the equipment near the storage containers). All staff should be trained in the use of this equipment. Consider providing a ‘quarantine area’ where leaking containers can be placed safely.
