Hazardous Materials Emergency Response

Please read Part 600, Subpart D, Hazardous Materials Spill and Incident Response, of the Hazardous Materials Management & Disposal Policy & Procedures for more information.


1) If the hazardous material spill is "small" (usually less than one liter), AND you know and understand the hazards associated with the material, AND you have the proper personal protective equipment available, proceed with containment and cleanup. Remember, the spill cleanup material may be considered a hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly.


2) If the hazardous material spill is too large, too hazardous, or beyond your response capabilities, call 911 immediately. Also contact the Environmental Health and Safety Office at 885-6524. Please provide the following information:

a) Your name;

b) Location of the incident;

c) Hazardous material(s) involved; and

d) Any other pertinent information.


3) Serious Injury, Fire, or Explosion - If the hazardous material incident involves serious injury or exposure, a fire and/or an explosion, call 911 before calling the Environmental Health and Safety Office - 885-6524. Please provide the same information listed above.


4) If the situation requires immediate evacuation, pull the building fire alarm and leave the building. Contact the first responder or fire chief when they arrive to explain the situation and provide additional information.


NOTE: All incidents involving a release of hazardous materials directly into the environment (i.e., into a body of water or onto the ground) must be reported to EHS immediately.
