Suitable for hazardous chemical spills, Ecospill 240L Chemical Spill Kits are housed in a 240L Blue wheelie spill bin, making them easy to station and manoeuvre the kit as desired. Chemical spill kits contain the items required to deal with chemical spills, including the following: ChemSorb Absorbent; Hazchem grade Absorbent Mats; 3m Hazchem grade Land Socks (for perimeter containment); 1.5m Hazchem grade Land Socks; Disposable Overalls; Safety Eye Glasses; Elbow length Acid Resistant Gloves; Anti-static Waste Disposal Bags; and Step-By-Step Spill Response Instructions.
The main absorbent powder is ChemSorb (TM). ChemSorb particulate is a lightweight, fast acting absorbent particulate, offering excellent absorption per density mass. It is non-toxic, inert and safe to use.
With the purchase of your Spill Kit, Ecospill will conduct a basic Spill Kit induction, showing you how to use the products in your kit. If you are outside of SE QLD and PERTH Metro Areas, a printed Induction Guide (covering the same information) is provided with your kit purchase.

New Australian Industry Standard Colour Coding
In 2013 the AusSpill Association was formed in order to bring uniformity to Australian Spill Industry, and to develop a national set of standards for Spill Kits and associated products. As one of the founding members of the AusSpill Association, Ecospill has been part the development of the national colour coding for Australian Spill Kits. Similar to the standards applied to fire extinguishers, Spill Kits now feature distinct colour coding in order to uniformly identify their purpose and the types of spills each kit will absorb.
- Fuel and Oil Spill Kits: Lime Green Bin with a White Lid. Transport kits will feature a Lime Green Bag with a White Top & White Straps
- General Purpose Spill Kits: Lime Green Bin with a Gray Lid. Transport kits will feature a Lime Green Bag with a Gray Top & Gray Straps
- Chemical Hazchem Spill Kits: Lime Green Bin with a Yellow Lid. Transport kits will feature a Lime Green Bag with a Yellow Top & Yellow Straps
As well as the new colour standard, other features such as minimum font sizes and uniform description wording all help to ensure that the Spill Kit and it’s liquid purpose are visible from 10 metres away. Ecospill is pleased to offer all our spill kit range in accordance with the new national standards. If you have an existing spill kits that are not to the national standard, we offer a bin upgrade program at a very cost effective rate. Please call us on 1300 736 116 to upgrade your bin.
If you already have existing Spill Kits, Ecospill is pleased to offer this same service on a regular schedule, should you wish to have Ecospill as your preferred supplier.
Cleaning Up using Chemical Spill Kits
Cleaning up chemical spills is easy when you have the right Chemical Spill Kit. The most important thing to remember when dealing with ANY spilled liquid is: safety first. Firstly check the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) of the liquid type that has been spilled. Put on the correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that is required when dealing with that liquid or chemical. All Ecospill 240L Chemical Spill Kits come complete with a step-by-step instruction card on how to clean up spills safely and efficiently.
