Highly toxic chemicals and select carcinogens that have spilled out of a primary container to create a hazard must be inactivated in situ or absorbed by appropriate means for subsequent disposal. Contaminated materials require decontamination by procedures that decompose the chemical, or removal for subsequent disposal. Write these decontamination protocols into your Laboratory Safety Plan, and update the protocols as necessary. Means for assuring the adequacy of clean up are required; for instance, wipe tests or fluorescence tests.
