Checklist: Collect and dispose of hazardous laboratory waste safely
Many laboratories work with hazardous substances. Accordingly, waste with hazardous ingredients is produced, which must be collected and disposed of properly. Our checklist shows you 10 important requirements to be observed when handling hazardous laboratory waste.
Laboratory supplies: Working safely in the laboratory
Laboratories work with a wide variety of hazardous substances in many different ways. Having the right combination of safety measures can effectively reduce hazards. DENIOS offers you an extensive product range for laboratory safety that gives you the highest levels of safety and protection.
Using newly patented technology, RuptureSealTM can safely close breaches, minimize damage, help protect the environment, preserve health and safety, potentially save thousands of dollars through spill remediation, and save lives.
Anyone who handles, uses or "only" stores hazardous substances cannot avoid it: the risk assessment. For 25 years it has been the central element in occupational health and safety. In our FAQs we have put together the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the subject of "Risk assessment for hazardous substances".
DENSORB Absorbent Rolls absorb quickly and safely. They are suitable for oils, coolants, solvents and water as well as non-aggressive acids and alkalis. DENSORB absorbent rolls are ideally suited for covering large areas, either on or under leak-prone machinery. They come in Universal, Oil-Only, and Hazmat.
Small leaks or spills are more than housekeeping issues; they are a liability. And sorbents are an effective way to quickly contain and clean-up these accidents before they become problems.
Typically made of polypropylene, sorbents are commonly offered for three different groups.
Universal for both water-based and oil-based chemicals
Oil-Only for use on water to absorb floating hydrocarbons
HazMat for aggressive, caustic chemicals
DENIOS DENSORB Fine Fiber Sorbents also come pre-packed in Emergency Spill Kits. These kits come in a variety of spill capacities and feature a mix of sorbent products- all designed to help you react quickly, efficiently, and effectively to spills ranging from a few ounces to many gallons.
Choose the right type for your application
Use Universal Rolls for nearly any general-purpose industrial or commercial cleanup. These Fine Fiber polypropylene sorbents will soak both oil and water-based non-aggressive liquids. Use these for routine maintenance and repair work wherever spills, drips, or leaks are likely to occur. Choose Medium-weight for absorbing smaller cleanups and Heavy for your larger spills.
Oil-Only sorbents have specially coated fibers to absorb oils, fuels, and other hydrocarbons while repelling water. Choose a medium weight for normal volumes and heavy for your larger spills.
These Hazmat Rolls are resistant to a wide range of chemicals including both acidic and basic liquids. They will quickly absorb liquids that are water or oil-based. The special melt-blown technology provides a highly efficient absorbency as well as a tough, tear-resistant construction.
