We take safety seriously, but for those who want just a little bit more, here is our Pneumatic Fluid Spill Response Plan:

  1. Don’t panic, pneumatic fluid does contain some corrosive elements, but they are slow acting.
  2. Pneumatic fluid is easily disturbed, if you suspect a spill, move very slowly to ensure best containment.
  3. Do not use a vacuum cleaner, since this will simply disperse the fluid.
  4. Carefully place the fluid into seal-able containers.  We recommend containers like these, since they are fun:

  5. For larger spills, contact Girls of Steel Robotics (Team 3504);  we hear that they have a bigger container:

  6. In conclusion, we would like to point out that FIRST approved pneumatic fluid is ….. air.
