What types of materials do Hazardous Cabinets hold?
Hazardous Cabinets are designed to hold many different types of harmful or potentially dangerous materials. Including acid, flammable chemicals, oily rags, COSHH, pesticides and other possibly harmful cleaning products. These cabinets may be locked for secure storage. Many larger units offer 2 locks for extra security and prevention of unauthorised use. Typically, most hazardous cabinets are manufactured from strong reinforced steel and are fully welded. They will also include all the warning stickers that are needed for hazardous materials storage in cabinets.
Many of these cabinets are designed to help reduce possible injuries from spills that may occur while the hazardous supplies are stored inside them. This includes having shelf trays that are punched so that they may contain the spills, and allow the liquid or other waste to be drained into a handy removable sump that is included. These sumps will always meet the minimum spill ratio required for that particular cabinet.
Hazardous Cabinets that hold pesticides or cleaning materials are usually green or red in colour and have vents made into the doors so that the fumes from the contents will not build up inside the cabinet, which could potentially cause explosions or inhalation accidents to workers opening the door, had the vents not been there. These hazardous cabinets also include either one or two locks on the handles according to the size, and some may have shelves also.
Flammable storage cabinets are usually available in either bright yellow or gray and display orange flammable warning stickers. These hazardous cabinets are used to hold all types of flammable cleaners, paints and other flammable materials. They can be found in large or small sizes depending on what types of chemicals you will need to store, and typically have one or two locks on each cabinet.
There are also small hazardous cabinets available that are either flat topped or sloped for easy storage or disposal of any flammable rubbish or hazardous items you may come across on the job. These handy storage containers can be placed anywhere throughout the workplace where workers may come in contact with, or use hazardous chemicals or other material.
