Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 2 sections
- 1 Spill kits
- 2 Dealing with a spill
Spill kits are the first response to spills. They provide what’s needed to clean up a spill. Having them on hand means that spills can be dealt with quickly and effectively in a safe and hygienic manner. This is vital with this type of spill as bodily fluids are potentially infectious.
It’s important that you know where to find them and how to use them.
Your organisation may have its own specific spill response procedure, that describes what you should do in the event of a spill and tells you who you should contact. If your organisation has one, then make sure you read it, so you know what you have to do and who you have to tell.
About this course
Spillage of bodily fluids can pose a large risk to both people and the environment. A spill kit is comprised of various absorbent tools that should be used when there is a leak or spillage of a bodily fluid. They are designed to stop the spillage from spreading further and help start a cleanup process.
Spill kits must only be used in emergencies. Most are comprised of the same base products, which are PPE, materials to stop leakages, waste bags and materials to seal drains. Some workplaces may have multiple sizes and multiple purpose spill kits.
When you encounter a spill, the first and most important thing is to protect yourself first. Our Spill Kit Training for Bodily Fluids course looks at what a spill kit comprises of, when it's needed and the procedure to follow when you encounter a spill.

I have learnt that you must wear the PPE & assume the worst by wearing a lot of protective kit. I have learnt that the spill must be disposed into a hazardous bag which must be securely fastened. I have learnt that you must put up warning signs & block off the area of the spill so others do not get harmed or infected.
I've never seen a spill kit before. It was interesting. We have most of the stuff within the spill kit but it is good to know how to use it all in the right way.
excellent and easy to understand.
Useful and informative
Important knowledge to have in the lab when handling potentially dangerous body fluids and how to confidently deal with spills
A very informative & conscise Training
This Couse was very clear & conscise with a lot of relevant information in it - Thank you. It would be really helpful if I could access the Certificates of all my courses, to be able to print them off, as I didn't seem to be able to see them or do this for the last few Courses that I have completed, for some reason.
