Every plant that keeps hazardous materials should have safety cabinets. However, those that have only a small amount of hazmat products don’t necessarily have the big safety cabinets that take up a lot of space. A piggyback safety cabinet or two already addresses the issue.
First of all, we need to remember why we should have safety cabinets in the first place. In case of fire, hazardous materials will make the matter even worse when the fire reaches it. Explosion may happen and damages are more likely to be even more irrecoverable. These hazmat products should be kept away and safely within the plant, inside the safety cabinets. Safety cabinets are normally made of materials meeting NFPA and OSHA standards that prevent fire to reach the contents inside. This could buy the plant personnel time to stop the rampaging fire before the coalition between fire and hazmat happens. That is why every plant should have this safety cabinet to further protect both workers and assets.
For storage of small amount of hazmat products, you don’t need large safety cabinets. Piggyback safety cabinets are already enough to contain these hazardous materials. The cabinets can be stacked on top of 30 to 45 gallon cabinets and they can also be mounted on wall or countertop to save floor space. You’ll need optional bracket to mount the cabinets on the wall.
