* Stop the source: After the
spill is confined, stop the
source of the spill. This may be
as simple as turning a container upright or plugging a leak
in a damaged drum. Transfer

the spill is confined and the

and develop a plan of action
for implementing the spill
cleanup. Spills are commonly
absorbed. Specially designed
spill pads should be used to
absorb the remainder of the
spill. Simply place the pads
throughout the spill area.
Unused absorbents are not

the sorbents are saturated
with oils, solvents, etc., they
may be considered hazardous
waste and should be disposed
of as such according to federal, state, and local laws for the
liquids they have absorbed.
* Decontaminate:
Decontaminate the site,
personnel, and equipment by
removing or neutralizing the
hazardous materials that have
accumulated during the spill.
This may involve removing
and disposing of contaminated media, such as soil, that
was exposed during the spill
incident. An effective decontamination area ensures the
health and safety of emergency responders.
