The Director of EH&S will determine what spills can be cleaned up by College employees using the following criteria:

- Employee(s) have the training or expertise necessary to proceed safely
- The amount and location of the spill is within the capability of College employees to handle
- The necessary spill response supplies and equipment are available

If the answer to ANY of these questions is "no," the area will be evacuated, and assistance from the New London Fire Department and/or a Spill Response Contractor will be requested.
