Where the spilled liquids consist of human or animal body fluids (ie: blood, urine, vomit, faeces) or other possible contagion (ie: spoiled food, sullage, sewage) special steps must be taken to ensure the safety of the spill responder and to leave a clean and sanitised surface behind. Hazardous spills require the use of proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by suitably trained staff. Responders must not attempt to clean up any hazardous spills unless they have been trained in the correct spill clean-up procedures, have the required equipment on hand and wear appropriate PPE. All wastes generated from the spill clean-up must be disposed in accordance with local, state & federal regulations.
