How to store flammable liquids:
Many different businesses will have flammable liquids which need to be stored safely and properly, to reduce the risk of fire. You might have harmful liquids like ink, paint, corrosives or even acids in your company.
If you store them properly, you can avoid a lot of common problems. You can make sure that both your environment and your staff are safe. You can avoid fines by OSHA and the EPA by having your liquid stored safely.
Even if a fire is small, any unprotected chemicals which are not stored properly can make the fire quickly become out of control. If you have a fire safety cabinet, this will help you to ensure that the fire will not rage out of control.
Here are a few tips to making sure that your liquid is stored safely;
Get flammable protective cabinets.
Flammable cabinets are the obvious choice when you are thinking about fire safety. They are specifically designed to help keep flammable liquid safe and are available in various sizes with self-closing or even manual doors. The colour of the cabinet is bright yellow so that everybody knows to take caution when around this cabinet, and there are several different types to choose from as well, such as floor sizes as well as wall mounted or stackable fire cabinets. These cabinets are also double walled and made out of very strong steel so that they can resist any tampering or fire threat.
Declare any chemicals which you have your facility.
There are various ways of declaring the flammable liquids that you have in your facility. If you get any new chemicals, make sure that you update your records and allow other members of staff to also find out where these are stored and what the chemicals exactly are.
Invest in fire safety equipment.
By investing in fire safety equipment, you can be sure that in the worst case scenario if the fire does happen, you can help to control it as quickly as possible with fire extinguishers, fire blankets and fire hoses.
Make sure that you professionally train your staff on how to correctly evacuate the building in the event of a fire.
