2.1Determining the type of response necessary


If the incident involves any of the following, a member of either Directorate or the Facilities Management (FM) Management Team must decide if the University (Emergency Plan) should be initiated:

Incident Level




1

An environmentally hazardous substance has escaped from site (i.e. contamination of open ground) or entered controlled waters.

2

A consent limit (air, land, water including waste) has been breached.



If the incident involves any of the following, use the steps outlined in section 2.2 to mitigate the environmental impact and clean up:

Incident Level




3

A leakage or spillage of an environmentally hazardous substance that is contained on site but may require significant clean up.


4

A leakage or spillage of an environmentally hazardous substance that is contained within the local areas has not caused contamination and requires a relatively minor clean up.



All other incidents for example a complaint about noise should be reported using the procedure laid out in the EMS Manual (FMENV003), Section 4.7. These will then be investigated and corrective / preventative action taken as required.

2.2Dealing with spillage and release of Environmentally Hazardous Substances



Releases and spillages of environmentally hazardous substances (E.g. any substance that if released into the environment would cause damage, including; oils, chemicals, inks, dairy products) need to be dealt with safely and effectively in order to reduce the risk of injury to people, damage to university premises and the environment.


During an incident the safeguarding of life and health is paramount and should not be compromised in order to protect equipment, buildings or the environment.

Before purchasing hazardous substances you are required to obtain information regarding risks associated with that substance. Spillage procedures are part of that information.

General Health and Safety Precautions

The main risks to the health and safety of personnel involved in the spillage/pollution operation are:

  • Fire/explosion & Inhalation of toxic fumes

  • Contamination of skin/body surface

  • Asphyxiation due to oxygen starvation

All members of University staff who are trained to deal with spillages, should be aware of the risks, and should consider the following guidelines when dealing with a spillage:

  • Approach the spillage from an upwind direction

  • Wear the appropriate protective clothing

  • Remove the contaminated clothing as soon as possible

  • Seek medical advice if ill effects are experienced

  • Do not smoke

  • Do not operate electrical or battery powered equipment, unless told its safe to do so.

  • Do not eat or drink with contaminated hands or whilst wearing contaminated clothing


Initial Action

In the event of a release or spillage of a hazardous substance take the following action:


  • Move away from the site of the spill or release;

  • Seal off the area and alert others in the vicinity;

  • Try to identify what you saw;

  • Raise the alarm

    • If you feel any spillage is too large or dangerous for you to control, obtain help, call the Fire Brigade immediately by dialling 333 on any University phone; or,

    • For large spillages/releases of flammable liquids/gases (>5 litres) sound the fire alarm to initiate full evacuation of the building and call out the emergency services; or,

    • If there are local spill containment trained staff call them to the scene, if not call security by dialling 2068 who will then contact the most relevant person from the list of competent persons FMENVREC049.

  • Locate the relevant COSHH Assessment or Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

  • Attend to people who may be contaminated with the spilled material. Remove contaminated clothing immediately and wash the skin with water for up to 15 minutes. If a shower or hose is needed to aid this process these can be found in MB28, MB248, MB320, DB028 and the Stewart Building. Contact a first aider and/or the emergency services.


Cleaning up spillages


The relevant competent person will decide if the spillage clean-up is within the capabilities of the locally trained spill containment trained staff, if not a member of Directorate or the FM Management Team must be contacted to activate the Emergency Plan.

The content of each spill kit will vary according to local absorbency needs, the responsible people for ensuring kits are restocked are listed above, these people must be informed of items used to enable them to maintain stock levels. Each spill kit is labelled with details of the person responsible for restocking.


Prior to starting a cleanup, the hazardous substance(s) must be identified so that appropriate personal protective equipment and/or respiratory protective equipment can be chosen for the task. This information will be found on the COSHH Assessment.


Do:

  • Wear suitable personal or respiratory protective equipment at all times;

  • Use the absorbent material in the spill kits to soak up any liquid spills;

  • Protect potential drainage points with spill booms or absorbent pads;

  • Work from the outside, circling to the inside for final pick up of the spilled material;

  • Ventilate the area by opening windows;

  • Pack the contaminated absorbent material and any contaminated equipment, other substances (e.g. contaminated soil) in a sealable container (if using bags ensure at least 2 are used) of a compatible material and dispose of as you would of the material that has been cleaned up. So if the material would have been a hazardous waste, the absorbent materials must be disposed of as such;

  • Fully label all containers of contaminated material with the name of the spilled substance, associated hazards and type of contents contaminated (e.g. absorbent pads);

  • Ensure the area affected, adjacent areas and equipment are fully decontaminated (Check floors directly above/below as appropriate);

  • Ensure all spill equipment is decontaminated before it is returned to the spill kit (brushes, mops, PPE etc);

  • Complete a FMENVREC028a Hazardous waste transfer note;

  • Report all spillages/releases to the SHE Section on an Environmental Incident/ Near Miss/ Nonconformity Reporting Form (FMENVREC040)

  • Ensure the spill kit is replenished, by contacting the relevant responsible person detailed in the table above.


Do not:

  • Rush into an area where the hazards have not been fully identified;

  • Attempt to clean up a spill while you are alone;

  • Walk through any spilt material. Try to reduce contamination of a wider area;

  • Allow staff and student to re-enter an area until it has been fully decontaminated;
