Hazardous Substance Storage
Storing hazardous substances and materials safely is vital to protecting employees and visitors from accidental exposure. Our selection of hazardous storage cupboards, cabinets, bins and vaults will help businesses keep substances such as flammable liquids, chemicals, acids, pesticides and paints safe and secure.
Dealing with hazardous substances, flammables, agrochemicals, pesticides, acids, alkalis and other toxic materials involves detailed risk assessments that should adhere to applicable Health and Safety legislation such as The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (CoSHH) and The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR).
Hazardous storage cabinets, cupboards, chests, vaults and units can help with compliance to CoSHH, DSEAR and other HSE regulations by providing separate and secure storage for materials that are harmful, toxic, flammable or corrosive. They can form part of risk management plans and procedures that ensure that your site, facility and staff are safe from accident, injury and danger.
We have a range of hazardous storage options, from cupboards for the general storage of hazardous materials, to more specific cabinets for acids and alkalis, agrochemicals and pesticides, flammables and chemicals. All include sumps for spillage control and containment, robust construction for durability and protection and appropriate warning labels.
