Hazardous materials procedures

General Information

If you are a hazardous material user, you should be trained by your supervisor on proper use and storage of hazardous materials. This training must include hazard information, proper procedures for preventing spills, and emergency procedures when a spill happens.

If you witness a hazardous material spill, evacuate the spill site and warn others to stay away.

Determine if you are trained and equipped to safely clean up the spill.

If you are unable to safely clean up the spilled material, call University Police at 911 (from a campus phone) or 777-2393 (from any phone).

If You Spill A Hazardous Material or Materials:

A major spill (a spill that you cannot safely handle by yourself)

A minor spill (A spill you can safely clean up)

If you suspect or witness a release of a hazardous material to the environment (air, water, ground) call University Police at 911 (from a campus phone) or 777-2393 (from any phone).
