Chemical Drum Containment Techniques
Compliant drum storage requires strategic placement inside a chemical storage building. Between each drum, there should be enough room for personnel access and/or equipment access, for loading and unloading. Hazardous drum storage should be separated by type of hazardous chemical. As with any quantity of chemicals, flammable or combustibles chemicals should be compliantly stored away from other substances, especially oxidizers. Oxidizers are very dangerous and can contribute to the combustion of other substances, resulting in a hazardous situation. Oxidizers should be stored separately to prevent fires. Chemical drums should also be grounded to prevent static that can lead to a fire or explosion.
