According to the OH&S regulations for workplace safety, all dangerous goods including flammable and combustible substances as well as toxic substances need to be contained separately to reduce the risk of accidents involving them. No one goes up to these substances and sets them on fire but fires can break out in pretty much any kind of a building. The risk of fire is even higher in a factory or industrial workplace where machines and dangerous substances are being used around the clock.
The reason why OH&S regulations require such workplaces to store their dangerous goods separately is because these substances can elevate the danger of a situation which involves a fire breaking out. Though, these days, all kinds of buildings come equipped with many fire safety features that can help you either escape the fire or put it out before it gets too out of control, properly storing goods that can fuel the fire further can really help lessen the problem.
If your work place makes use of any kinds of materials that are combustible or flammable in nature, then you’re required by legislation to use storage cabinets such as Hi Craft Safety flammable storage. These cabinets are designed to do two things; keep the flammables safe from the environment and at the same time, keep the environment safe from the flammables. They’re made of heavy duty, heat resistant materials so that they can hold the flammable substances in, in case a fire breaks out.
This can greatly reduce the damage done during a fire and besides, a lot of money ends up getting saved too since flammable substances don’t come cheap either! Visit Hi Craft’s website to find out more about what kind of flammable storage suits your needs.
