Mercury Spill Kit

Mercury Spill Kit

Alpha-Cure’s medium-pressure UV lamps typically contain a tiny amount of mercury that is required to help generate UV wavelengths.

When inert, the mercury is in the form of a small pellet contained within the airtight confines of the lamp body. If handled correctly the lamp poses no danger to humans.

However, as there is a small risk of lamp breakage which may result in the mercury being exposed to an external surface or to the air, the UK’s Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 requires employers to reduce the risks of mercury exposure to employees and others.

One way to reduce the risk is to have a Mercury Spill Kit available to help contain any spillage. The kit is designed to cope with mercury spillages on any surface.

The main features are:

  • Uses a COSHH-recommended system for dealing with spillages
  • Kit can be used to deal with up to five spillages
  • Decontamination procedure helps eliminate effects of ‘old’ spillages
  • Safe storage of waste mercury for disposal
  • Full compliance with CQC (Care Quality Commission) outcomes in UK and Health and Safety Executive inspections
