Chemicals in storage are at risk from fire, chemical reaction and pressure build-up amongst other risks. Because of this, it’s vital that chemical storage best practices and regulations are always adhered to. We’ve outlined some of the key chemical storage principles to adhere to below.

Segregated chemical storage tank

Separate storage areas should be established for chemicals, flammable materials, and gas cylinders respectively. Storage areas should be easy to access, well-ventilated, temperature-controlled, and sufficiently lit. While there is no substitute for consulting the SDS for each chemical, certain conventions apply – such as not storing acids and alkalis together, strong acids with organic substances, or oxidizing substances with oxidizable materials. You can find more information on safe segregation of chemicals in this.

Safe flammable chemical storage tank

Flammable materials should be secured in an approved, dedicated flammables storage cabinet, or rack-stored with a sprinkler system installed. The area must be clear from sparks, open flames or smoking. Storage drums must be fitted with pressure-relief venting caps.
