Chemical Storage

Chemicals should be stored according to hazard class while carefully considering those with dual hazards. Use the Chemical Segregation and Storage Table as a guideline for proper chemical storage or refer to the Chemical Storage Compatibility Chart. Time sensitive chemicals should be labeled with “Date Received” and “Date Opened” for proper management. The Chemical Storage Area signs can be used for chemical storage labeling needs.
