How to Properly Store/Arrange Your Hazardous Materials to Minimize Risk and Potential Spills.

Businesses operating in Orange County have multiple compliance requirements for storing and handling hazardous materials.  These substances can present issues of flammability, combustibility, reactivity, corrosivity, toxicity, stability, explosiveness, carcinogenicity, and so on.  In addition to the regulatory requirements including reporting, CUPA inspections etc., you’ll likely have to obtain a permit from your local Fire Department which includes an annual inspection.  Did you know that in some cities if you store products at heights greater than 12 feet, you may require a High Pile Storage Permit?  Certain commodities (like idle pallets) trigger permit requirements at as little as 4’ 6” in height!   Improper storage and handling can lead to catastrophic accidents which destroy property and may cause serious injuries to your employees and your neighbors!  Come and learn from an experienced first responder on how your business can manage these risks.
