In an effort to prevent environmental pollution and damage to human health, legal requirements now dictate that hazardous chemicals are kept in secure chemical stores . Read More
The government advises that chemical storage areas are secure, away from heavy machinery and vehicles to prevent accidental damage, unlikely to flood, and clearly signposted.
The storage of hazardous chemicals must also be in line with the relevant health & safety legislation, for instance, complying with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH). COSHH provides practical advice on best practice, as well as assessments and training.
Secure chemical storage units are often manufactured according to clients’ specifications. Typically, the units should be tamper-proof, fire-resistant, sealed to prevent leakage and well ventilated. Mobile chemical storage units are suitable for the transportation of chemicals, and are designed to prevent any spillage.
Should spillage occur, spill kits are available to safely clean up chemical spills that pose an environmental threat.
