COSHH Cabinets & Cupboards

The storage of hazardous materials is covered by strict Health and Safety legislation. Any business which has a requirement to store potentially dangerous substances or flammable liquids must comply with all relevant regulations.

Employers can reduce risk to workers and premises in many ways. The purchase of specialist storage such as dangerous and flammable substance cabinets or chemical vaults is a key step in ensuring your business is protected. Products in this category have been designed specifically to hold hazardous materials and include several invaluable safety features. For more information on the storage of hazardous materials or flammable goods, check out our useful product guide.

COSHH Storage

Our hazardous materials cabinets and cupboards have been specially constructed to securely and safely store hazardous materials in the workplace. All comply with current Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations and offer a safe, segregated storage solution for potentially harmful substances.

Storage of this type is loaded with safety features to ensure hazards are minimised and work can be undertaken as safely as possible. For example, all units offer secure storage. Our chemical storage cabinets are fitted with single or 3-point locking mechanisms (depending on cabinet size) and include reinforced doors for increased security.

All cabinets, boxes and vaults feature an integral sump (or the option to have one included), which ensures any accidental spills or leaks are contained within the unit. This is particularly important to prevent cross-contamination and substances polluting the local environment.

Because these features are seen as fundamental for safe storage, you will find them present even in items such as empties bins which hold used containers awaiting disposal.

Placing one cabinet on top of another can be a good way to make the most of limited floor space, however to do this safely the unit must be expressly designed for that purpose. Stackable dangerous substance cabinets have retaining lips that prevent cabinets from separating accidentally.

Cabinets must be able to withstand accidental damage from impact to maintain their protective abilities. To increase their strength many of the available options are constructed from thick, powder-coated steel. All cabinets and boxes have a super-strong finish that ensures they stand up to the harshest of conditions.

Strength and security in any storage option play a major role in working safely to minimise risk, however there are other essential elements that must also be taken into consideration. One of these is ensuring staff and visitors know exactly what is being stored and where. This means clear, easily-recognised signs and labels are a must.

All storage must be labelled to show the nature of the risk inside. It is imperative to use the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). These diamond-shaped labels mark the contents as ‘harmful/irritant’, ‘flammable’, ‘corrosive’ etc. and are universally recognised. Many cabinets are supplied with these labels as standard, but further supplies or those with different pictograms can be purchased separately.

Fireproof Storage

When storing flammable goods, a unit that has a fire resistance of at least 30 minutes is a must. This will allow extra time for firefighting to take place, potentially avoiding a major incident. Consider using a unit such as the flammable and chemical storage vault which also features forklift skids and the ability to add castors allowing it to be moved from place to place.
