Note: Spill category definitions:
Oil: crude oil.
Fuel: diesel, gasoline, kerosene, heating oil, aviation fuel.
Chemical: any other raw material or ancillary.
Waste: any material (solid, liquid, gas) that is introduced into the work location as a product of the work but that fulfils no further useful purpose at that location.
Other: other material not included in categories above.

N.B. If something fits into more than one category, we report against the category that provides the most information, e.g. chemical rather than waste when reporting waste chemicals.

Note: Data has been provided for individual countries where there have been relevant spills.
