The dangers associated with spilling Flammable Materials are far greater than those associated with spilling general non-flammable materials, simply because of the increased release of flammable gases from the exposed surface area of the chemical.
Imagine a 5 litre petrol can with a 40mm diameter fill cap, the amount of flammable gas released that you can smell through this relatively small opening is quite low, now imagine this 5 litres poured onto the floor, the smell is now considerably higher and as the flammable liquid travels, more and more flammable gas is released into the atmosphere.
Being able to understand factors such as this are important when working outside of Zoned areas. Isolating power to electrical equipment to remove potential sources of ignition can sometimes itself generate a spark and thus ignite gases.
Spill absorption must be quick - at the same time dangers of asphyxiation - continued gas release - ventilation - ignition sources - evacuation and many other things must be considered.

I attended the monthly meet yesterday and would like to thank you for one of the best, and most entertaining, sessions I have seen in a long while. It was most entertaining and extremely informative. I am sure I speak for many other safety professionals who, during their training, only get to read or be told about the fire triangle, flammable substances, and explosions. The session you delivered yesterday provided a fantastic insight into the subject and gave practical demonstrations of such things as LEL and UEL.
Just a quick note to say thank-you for your excellent presentation and demonstration yesterday - definitely provided the high impact that we were looking for in terms of a training / awareness event for the attendees. We will definitely be exploring opportunities to invite you back to reach a wider audience here on the Camp.
