Class 6 Toxic Substances Storage Cabinets


Toxic Substance Storage Cabinets

Storing toxic substances in an indoor storage cabinet is essential for several reasons related to safety, regulatory compliance, and environmental protection. Here are some of the main reasons why toxic substances should be stored in cabinets that have been manufactured to the AS/NZS 4452 standard “The storage and handling of toxic substances”.

Toxic substances can pose serious health risks if they come into contact with humans, animals, or the environment. Storing them in dedicated indoor storage cabinets helps prevent accidental exposure and contamination, reducing the likelihood of harm to individuals and the surrounding area.

Containment of Hazard:

Toxic substances can release harmful fumes, gases, or particles that can spread and affect people’s health or the environment. A storage cabinet with appropriate ventilation and containment features can help minimise the release of these hazards and keep them confined to a controlled space.

Fire Protection:

Many toxic substances are flammable or can contribute to the spread of fires. Storing them in cabinets designed to resist fire can help prevent fires from starting or spreading in case of an accident.

Regulatory Compliance:

Many toxic substances need to be stored in such a way as to prevent unauthorsied access.  Using a pH7 Toxic Storage Cabinet allows your substances to be locked inside the cabinet.

Organised Inventory:

Indoor storage cabinets provide a controlled and organised space to store toxic substances. This helps personnel easily locate and access the substances they need, reducing the risk of mishandling or accidental mixing of incompatible chemicals.

Emergency Preparedness:

In the event of a spill, leak, or other emergency, having toxic substances stored in cabinets makes it easier to contain and manage the situation. Proper storage can minimise the impact of accidents and facilitate a quicker response to emergencies.

Minimisation of Cross-Contamination:

Toxic substances are often incompatible with each other and can react dangerously if they come into contact. Storing them separately in dedicated cabinets reduces the risk of cross-contamination and chemical reactions that could lead to unexpected hazards.

Protecting the Environment:

Storing toxic substances indoors, particularly in cabinets that are designed to prevent leaks and spills, helps safeguard the environment from potential pollution. This is especially important for substances that can seep into soil, water sources, or air if not properly contained.

Employee Safety:

Toxic substances can harm employees who work in the vicinity. Proper storage reduces the exposure of workers to potentially harmful substances, promoting a safer work environment.
