6 Chemical Accidents and Emergencies Working in a hazardous environment dictates that all laboratory staff must be trained to handle chemical spills, accidents, and emergencies. Knowing the procedures for potential problems will make responding to accidents or emergencies faster and more effective. Quick response time and appropriate action can save lives and control damage. 1 Spills When an accidental spill occurs, immediately notify laboratory personnel in the area; if alone, contact any person in the area, and let them know what has happened.

If there is a buildup of vapor due to poor ventilation, the vapor can ignite and enflame the source. Volatility indicates the ease with which a liquid or solid will pass into the vapor stage and is measured by the chemical’s boiling point. The flash point of a chemical is the lowest temperature at which a liquid can form enough vapor pressure to ignite in the presence of air when exposed to a flame. Chemicals with flash points of 38˚C or below are the most dangerous. The ignition temperature is the point at which a substance reaches self-sustained combustion without a source of heat or spark; the chemical will simply autoignite.

Corrosive chemicals might cause severe burns at the point of contact. 4 Chemical Hazards 23 body through the skin’s glands, follicles, cuts, or abrasions, causing systemic toxicity.
