Hazardous Substance Storage – Are you safe?

In facilities that deal with potentially hazardous materials on a regular basis, it is important that all elements of safety adhere to COSHH regulations (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health).

One such element of safety is the safe storage of dangerous substances. There are many cabinets currently available on the market that have been certified by COSHH.
COSHH cabinets such as hazardous storage bins, in many cases, will also adhere to DSEAR (the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations).
Available in many different sizes, hazardous storage bins and chests offer a practical and safe area specifically designed to house substances that are flammable, corrosive or toxic.

Whilst many, in a climate of economic downturn, might consider the expense of a hazardous storage bin or chest an investment they can’t justify, it is important to remember safe storage which adheres to COSHH and DSEAR is a legal obligation.
Keeping your workforce safe from the harmful effects of dangerous chemicals, however, should be reason enough to invest in safe storage.
