i started working for a new company. found in maintenance shop they are storing various chemicals, lubricants, paints, and other misc items in a general use style cabinet. inside also are food grade & non-food grade items stored next to each other. i have brought this up to management and suggested getting new haz-mat lockers. they said it is fine, they dont use it all that often, and tat is too expensive.
i have tried to look for regulations on this but get overwhelmed with so much info and sometimes not exactly with the info i am trying to show how this may be improper and against regs. can anyone help point me in the proper directions under the EPA or OSHA or other for the proper guidelines to this.
also do flammable storage cabinets have to be self-closing? i've looked at a few companies that sell them and they offer both self closing and manual close.
