How do we handle mercury spills?

Every office that uses free mercury should be equipped with a mercury spill kit. These devices are commercially available from dental supply and lab safety supply companies. Mercury should be collected using the materials provided in the spill kit and then turned in to a licensed facility for reclaiming. The risk of mercury spills can be virtually eliminated by using precapsulated amalgam and recycling mercury containing thermometers and blood pressure gauges.
