Chemicals storage cupboards: secure storage with no ifs and buts
You don't even need to read all the regulations and laws to know that hazardous chemicals need to be stored in the company with particular diligence and safety. This is particularly true when you wish to store corrosive, water hazardous or toxic and hazardous substances in your work rooms to ensure employees have direct access to them. For cases like this, the chemicals storage cupboards from kaiserkraft are the safest solution, and also comply with all regulations.
Hazardous substance storage: which regulations apply to chemicals storage cupboards?
When it comes to hazardous goods management in the company, the following regulations apply, first of all, at European level, and also define all overarching requirements of chemicals storage and environmental cupboards, or the handling of hazardous substances:
- Company safety directive
- Hazardous Substances Directive
- Occupational Health and Safety Act
- Water Management Act
The following guides provide an overview of how to store chemicals correctly:
- Information on regulation compliant storage of hazardous materials
- Storage of water hazardous liquids in environmental and chemical cupboards
The basic tenor of all these regulations is, however, always the same: the choice of material and the equipment features of the environmental and chemicals storage cupboards must be adapted to the level of hazard and the goods being stored, and must regulate access to these substances in one way or another.
Which features do high quality chemicals storage cupboards have?
At kaiserkraft you will find different types of cupboards for the storage of chemicals and liquids:
