Minor pesticide spills


This video snippet will show you how to clean up a small spill of liquid pesticide. Click the play button to view the video now or click on the script tab to view the storyboard. To view the video off-line, click the link from the 'download' tab.


If an accidental spill occurs then use the sand or sawdust in your spill kit to contain the liquid and absorb it. Do this as soon as possible and before it spreads too far, contaminates other surfaces or – if on the ground - penetrates below its surface.

Scoop up the contaminated material and place it in the plastic bag that is then sealed and labelled for safe disposal later.
