All substances including chemicals, solvents and fuel should be stored in a specially selected and locked areas
Store like substances together and away from other groups of substances that might cause a reaction if mixed; and store oxidizing and flammable substances in separate locations. This is to prevent the inadvertent mixing of incompatible chemicals, which can produce harmful gases and/or vapours, heat, fire and explosions.
Do not store substances higher than eye level, and never on the top shelf of a storage unit; and avoid storing them on the floor (even temporary); and follow these basic precautions to control the potential risks:
Allocate safe storage areas for the storage of flammable materials and gases; and make sure that warning signs are displayed, so that everyone is aware of the risk that they pose. Keep:
Any tank used for the bulk storage of fuel must have a bund around it, which will hold the contents of the tank plus 10%, so that any leakage from it is contained.
