Minimizing Storage Hazards for Liquid Sanitation Chemicals
Both the International Building Code (IBC) and International Fire Code (IFC) define many of the chemical liquids used in the sanitation process as “health hazards” and limit the maximum allowable storage quantity for any given facility. These same codes also outline building fire separation and life safety components required for designated storage areas. Yet even though these storage requirements are specified, some facilities may not be doing enough in their storage efforts. The October issue of Hixson’s From Experience newsletter looks at these codes and outlines key steps your facility can take to be in compliance.
