What should aerosol cans be stored in?
Aerosol cans must be stored in a compliant aerosol cage that is separated from heat, direct sunlight, ignition sources and incompatible substances.
Do I need a flammable liquid storage cabinet?
If you’re storing any Class 3 Flammable Liquids, you’ll need specially crafted cabinets to safely and compliantly store them (as per AS1940-2017). See this article for more information.
It’s quite common for workplaces to hold at least a small amount of flammable liquids on site. Even if these flammable liquids are stored in small quantities, they can easily ignite and cause significant damage. However, AS1940 states that a cabinet is not required if the quantity of flammable liquids is classified as “minor storage.” This article will help here.
Do Storemasta cabinets come with locks?
All STOREMASTA PPE cabinets and indoor dangerous goods storage cabinets are fitted with a key-lockable L-handle.
STOREMASTA relocatable outdoor dangerous goods stores are fitted with ISO-locking bars that can be padlocked. These dangerous goods stores are not supplied with padlocks.
STOREMASTA gas cylinder stores are fitted with padbolts that can be padlocked. STOREMASTA doesn’t provide the padlocks.
How and Where Should I Store Flammable Liquids?
AS1940-2017 outlines a range of compliant storage solutions for flammable liquids. Due to their safe and practical design most organisations use:
Depending on the contents of the gas cylinder, storage must be regulated carefully. All gas cylinders should be handled, transported and stored as if full, as there is almost always gas remaining at the bottom of every cylinder. Hazardous gases must be stored in temperature-controlled and well ventilated spaces.
The Globally Harmonised System (GHS) is a globally-recognised system created by the UN for the classification and labelling of hazardous chemicals.
The GHS has been mandatory in Australia since the 1st of January 2017, for all newly produced or imported products. This means you must use GHS compliant labelling on primary and secondary packaging, and safety data sheets (SDS).
Read more about the GHS and actions you’re required to take here.
A flash point is the lowest temperature of a flammable liquid at which its vapours will ignite (if given an ignition source). Flammable fuels will usually emit vapour as the temperature increases and they become more gaseous. The flash point is the point at which there will be sufficient vapour for the substance to ignite.
It’s important to become familiar with flash points to avoid costly and dangerous incidents. See this article for examples of common flammable liquids and their flash points.
An on-site audit to identify any risks associated with your current dangerous goods storage and handling activity.
A report developed by a STOREMASTA Dangerous Goods Adviser, outlining all risks and infringements.
An implementation plan of clear action points needed to establish compliance.
To ensure that all changes have been actioned and your compliance is within Australian standards, a Dangerous Goods Adviser will return to evaluate the site.
What is the difference between indoor cabinets and outdoor cabinets?
Each of our cabinets has different features depending on the dangerous goods class which it will store. Key features are outlined below. Australian Standards provide different specifications for indoor and outdoor storage facilities, depending on the class of dangerous good.
Required features of an indoor storage cabinet include:
double walled sheet steel construction.
self-closing, close fitting doors.
capacity no greater than 250L (excluding flammable goods and corrosives).
no natural ventilation, but the provision for mechanical ventilation.
spill containment sump in the base of the cabinet, at least 150mm deep.
Outdoor dangerous goods storage facilities (detached stores) are more sturdy and designed to withstand the outdoor environments. Required features of a detached store include:
corrosive resistant coating.
heavier duty construction.
larger capacities (eg. 32,000L).
natural ventilation (to keep dangerous vapours at a safe level).
correct spillage containment capacity for the dangerous good being stored.
Violent reactions occur when two or more incompatible chemicals are stored together. Effectively segregating dangerous goods is essential for preventing devastating accidents. Download ourfree guide on segregating the 9 dangerous goods classesfor chemical-specific information.
Why can’t I place an indoor storage cabinet outdoors?
The Australian Standards only allow using indoor storage cabinets in outdoor environments if “adequate protection against weather, corrosion and traffic damage is provided.”
Even though our indoor dangerous goods storage cabinets have been manufactured to a high standard, we do not recommend using them in outdoor environments.
Our outdoor dangerous goods stores are more heavy duty and provide superior protection against weather, corrosion and traffic damage. View these here.
