What to look out for in hazardous storage cabinets

Simply put, if the base of the cabinet isn’t fully leak-proof, then an accidental spillage inside the cabinet is at risk of ending up on your workshop floor. This could be a health and safety hazard, so you should take due diligence in choosing a cabinet that works for your workspace. Cabinets are usually described as having a ‘sump capacity’, which is the amount of liquid it should safely retain in its base in the event of a spill.

In the event that a shelf is overloaded or that a poorly-sealed container of substances hazardous to health is put away in the cabinet, a spillage can occur inside. COSHH cabinets differ in specifications and importantly, in their ability to control the spillage of hazardous substances. Not all cabinets have fully sealed interiors, safely containing any hazardous substances that could leak or spill inside - many have removable sumps to catch spills, but these can allow dangerous liquids to escape the cabinet or pose a risk of liquids being spilled over an employee who may be tempted to remove a part-filled sump.

Our video shows you some of the different designs you can find online and will help you decide which model of cabinet will best satisfy the needs of your risk assessment and application.

With so many similar-looking cabinets available online and even more businesses recognising the need for COSHH-compliant cabinet, our aim is to encourage buyers to look more closely at the advertised descriptions, select the right cabinet and then inspect the product on delivery to make sure it will do what it’s supposed to do.

Why you should do your research on hazardous substance storage

Having the right hazardous substance storage cabinet can help reduce the risk of accidents when working with dangerous materials, and minimise risks to worker health if there is ever a spill or leak in the workplace. It can also help improve safety compliance by ensuring all workers know where hazardous substances are located at all times. Finally, having an appropriate storage cabinet gives the peace of mind that comes with knowing your workplace has taken the right steps to ensure everyone’s health and safety while working with potentially hazardous substances.

Manufactured in the UK, our hazardous and flammable substance storage cabinets are suitable for a wide range of potentially volatile materials. They are also built to last, and will help your company to stay compliant with health and safety regulations for years to come.
