1. If safe, #stop the spill at the source for example apply putty or turn off the switch or compressor.

2. #contain the spill by laying out spill control and HUG absorbents around and over the entire spill area, starting at the outside of the circle and working in.

3. #report and record all incidents of spills. Find the cause of the spill to reduce the risk of it happening again.
