Spill Kits

Post by Montlhery » Sun Jan 24, 2016 2:41 pm

Looking to update my spill kit for 2016 , can someone point me in the right direction as to where to purchase ? Also just to let any rookies know that this is a minimum requirement for chase/support vehicles .

Cheaper to make your own

Spill kit includes;
Wide flat mouth shovel
Broom and a small brush and shovel
Absorbent material, granules and or mat (diatomaceous earth or kitty litter)
Rags and or paper towels
Heavy duty plastic bags
Gloves (leather or rubber)
Eye and face protection
And a container to hold it all in that can double as a container for contaminants. Like the 52 litre bins you can buy at your local hardware. Or a bucket with a screw lid.

Each Support vehicle must be registered and have 3rd party insurance and have a minimum equipment level and appropriate identification, including;
a flashing orange light on the roof of the vehicle
a 5 watt (min) UHF 2 way radio mounted in the vehicle
first aid kit
fire extinguisher
spill kit
tarps for the support vehicle and competition vehicle
identification that it is a support vehicle
