Solution What should I do if I break a CFLi lamp?

If you break a CFLi, do not panic and take the following steps:
• Ventilate the room for 20-30 minutes.
• Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
• Use gloves to remove all the bits.
• All the items used in cleaning up the spill should be treated as “universal waste” or disposed at your local lamp recycling point.
• Remove all broken lamp components from the luminaire before reusing the luminaire.
• ALWAYS switch off the mains before removing the remaining lamp
