These biohazard spill kits have been designed specifically for the health care industry and for any liquids that may be commonly spilled in medical facilities or laboratories.
Wholesale Safety Storage Australia (WSSA) supply spill kits for labs and healthcare that are specifically designed for the healthcare industry and for any liquids that may commonly be spilled in laboratories or medical facilities.
Spill kits for lab and healthcare have been designed to specifically address spills in laboratories or medical facilities. Such spills occurring in the healthcare industry may include body fluids, biohazard, cytotoxic, or mercury spills.
Due to their specific nature, healthcare spill kits are usually smaller than their industrial counterparts. Common lab spills such as hydrofluoric acid or mercury often require a specialised spill response. Any other chemicals in a lab setting can be cleaned safely with a regular hazchem spill kit. However, it is always recommended to check your Safety Data Sheet in handling these spilt chemicals.
Each laboratory is unique and uses a unique composition of chemicals, both hazardous and non-hazardous, in various states. Therefore, laboratories handling these chemicals as well as bio-hazardous materials should have the appropriate supplies and equipment on hand for managing accidental spills involving such chemicals and materials.
Spill kits are containers equipped with equipment used to clean up hazardous materials and chemicals spilled. A spill kit is a set of well-organised equipment that has been specifically designed to deal with cleaning up substances, render it harmless, and to dispose of it safely.
Here at WSSA, we supply a range of Australian made spill kits for lab and healthcare. Our spill kits are available in an extensive range of sizes and types to help minimise risk and meet environmental obligations.

The mercury spill kit includes 10 mercury encapsulating powder in 10 gm sachets each. The powder turns the spilled mercury into a solidified mass when mixed with water.
