How Do You Store Flammable Liquids in The Workplace?

Properly storing flammable liquids in the workplace will protect employers and employees from potential fires, explosions, and work accidents.

The Importance of Proper Storage for Flammable Liquids

Workplaces that are known to store flammable and dangerous materials, such as paint shops, manufacturing plants, and medical and laboratory facilities need to take the necessary steps to keep people and property safe.

Workplaces must have adequate storage and handling procedures to prevent the risk of explosions and injuries and follow mandatory regulations and safety guidelines. For instance, general requirements by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) include not storing flammable liquids in areas used for exits, stairways, or generally used for the safe passage of people. And there is a maximum limit of 25 gallons of flammable liquids that can be stored outside of an approved storage cabinet.
