Keeping an umbrella and an ice scraper in the car doesn’t seem very important when it’s a sunny day in June. But, eventually it will rain or there will be an overnight frost and having these items readily available makes these weather-related inconveniences more bearable. Having spill kits in multiple areas of a facility where spills are most likely to happen is similar to having an umbrella and ice scraper in the car. Chances are, spills don’t happen every day – but when they do, having stocked spill kits ready for response allows employees to take immediate action. This minimizes the overall time spent cleaning up a spill and reduces the likelihood that someone will slip and fall while response supplies are being obtained.
