Storing corrosives in your business can be rather dangerous. That’s because corrosives are very aggressive and have to be handled with care. If they aren’t, then leaks and spills can occur. And if leaks and spills occur, then you, your employees, the environment, and your facility can be harmed.
But you can prevent problems simply by investing in a quality corrosive storage cabinet. These types of cabinets provide enhanced security. Their epoxy powder coating resists spills and leaks and makes cleanup easy. And as another plus, it will last for years to come so that your investment is a worthwhile one.
And, very importantly, the right corrosive storage cabinet helps you comply with EPA standards and keep your workplace safe for yourself, your employees, and anyone else that comes into the facility. Individual safety is of the utmost importance. After all, injuries incurred by people can cost more than a fine by the EPA. And of course, it’s the right thing to do.
But which cabinet to get? Depending on how much you must store, you’ll find it helpful that there are different size cabinets that will store up to 60 gallons of a corrosive material. Keep in mind, however, that these cabinets are not sufficient for storage of such corrosives as sulfuric, hydrochloric, and nitric acid. There are even more secure ways in which you can store these corrosives.
So make sure you do what you can to keep your corrosives stored safely. Don’t do it just to avoid fines and other issues that may arise, but do it for safety and for the sake of your facility. You may be surprised at how a simple security measure such as proper corrosive storage can make a difference within your business.
