While many companies have gone to mercury-free devices and products, some may have to work with such items, either because they manufacture them or need their precision. However, even small quantities of this toxin can be poisonous. The problem is that it can be inhaled, ingested or absorbed through the skin.
Mild exposure can cause hallucinations, delirium, and suicidal thoughts, while severe exposure can cause muscle spasms and death. This toxin can be stored in the spleen, brain, blood, kidneys, liver, fatty tissues, and bones, and could remain in the body for many days, which is why spill kits designed for such a poison are available for use.
You must choose spill kits that are designed to handle mercury because it requires specialty materials and accessories. The kit you select has to be able to deal with minor leaks and major spillage. It must also contain appropriate methods for disposal and include the items required for both clean-up and disposal. You should also ensure that proper protocols and policies are in place to handle such emergencies and only allow the kit to be used by someone who is trained to do so.
