When it rains, the rainwater washes down chemicals, trash, and sediments into your water system. If this contaminated water mixes with lake water, it may affect the environment and other aquatic animals.
Flammable safety storage cabinets are an essential safety feature in workplaces where employees need to store and handle volatile chemicals. These chemicals are even more dangerous than other chemicals typically used in industry and research because of the risk that they can ignite and cause a fire. Any time that flammable chemicals are not in use, it is vital that you store them so that they pose no risk to workers or your company property. Here are a few key reasons you should invest in flammable safety storage cabinets for your workplace.
If you have containers of chemicals with corrosive properties that you need to store but don’t have enough to warrant an entire storage warehouse, corrosive storage cabinets are likely a good solution for you. Corrosive storage cabinets are designed specifically to store containers with corrosive substances.
It’s essential to choose a high-quality, dependable cabinet or risk violating safety codes, not to mention the possible damage and harm to your facility and workers.
If your workplace uses, stores, or transports liquid chemicals or chemical waste, you’ll be familiar with the protocols that are in place to ensure the safe handling of these chemicals. Despite the measures you take when working with chemicals, spills can still occur because of human error, equipment failure and natural disasters. Having a chemical or hazchem spill kit to hand is an essential part of your emergency preparedness plan and is a legal requirement for worksites.
