Spills & Leaks

Spills and leaks during normal work hours may be reported to Environmental Health & Safety at (662) 325-0026.

After hours or if you cannot reach anyone at EH&S, report the spill to the MSU Police at (662) 325-2121.

When making a report, be prepared to provide the following:

•          Your name and phone number
•          Location of the spill
•          Nature of the spill or leak and the materials involved
When a spill or suspected spill occurs, a report should be made as soon as possible so that measures to control and clean up the spill can begin. In some cases, notifications to regulatory agencies are required.
If significant vapors or fumes are produced, evacuate the area. If necessary, use the fire alarm.
