Precautions must be taken to prevent accidents caused by corrosive liquids

Precautions must be taken to prevent accidents caused by corrosive liquids: A liquid with a flash point below 100°F is considered flammable. These include gasoline, acetone, toluene, diethyl ether and alcohol. This may produce flammable vapors at normal ambient temperatures.

Carrying flammable liquids poses an extreme risk to your organization’s people and equipment. To reduce risk, the internal storage cabinet capacity was reduced to 850L. This ban protects businesses that store large quantities of flammable liquids outdoors.

Move movable supplies to outdoor areas with corrosive fluid storage services. Therefore, those areas are used for outdoor storage of flammable liquids. External movable isolation containers, also known as Class 3 flammable liquid storage containers, typically range in capacity from 80L to 10,000L.

Flammable storage cabinets are similar to outdoor storage. These outdoor containers are focused on a range of needs in terms of their design and construction, leak resistance and drying.

These permitted vessels have the necessary panels to reduce the risks related to external Almacenamiento de Liquidos Corrosivos.

Foundations over flammable liquid storage services that are part of a seepage catchment system must be resistant and not liable to destruction or encourage flashing.


Outdoor flammable liquid storage must be provided with tolerable natural or mechanical ventilation to contain Class 3 flammable liquid types.

The ventilation system is adequate to ensure that all vapors and fumes generated within the stock area are dissolved and removed by air passing over the store.

Because of the risk of explosion with flammable vapors, store ventilation is an important safety concern. However, to understand whether your combustible cabinet requires mechanical ventilation, we recommend conducting a directed risk assessment on your site.

Precautionary measures

Ensure all stored containers are in good condition, closed and properly labelled.
Use a fume hood to prevent inhalation of flammable liquid and explosive liquid flammable vapor mixtures or toxic vapors.
Avoid placing ignition sources in common areas. If possible, replace open flames with electric heat.
