You don't even need to read all the regulations and laws to know that hazardous goods need to be stored in the company with particular diligence and safety. This is particularly true when you have to store flammable, corrosive, water hazardous or toxic substances in your workrooms to ensure employees have access to them. For cases like this, the hazardous goods storage cupboards from KAISER+KRAFT are the safest solution, and also comply with all regulations.
When it comes to hazardous goods management in the company, the following regulations apply, first of all, at European level, and also define all overarching requirements of environmental, safety and hazardous goods storage cupboards, or the handling of hazardous substances:

EN 14470-2 also applies for safety cupboards for compressed gas cylinders. Furthermore, employees must inform themselves about any country-specific regulations that outline these regulations more precisely, while also applying stricter standards for the necessary level of fire resistance and the capacity of the cupboard sumps. There are also a number of technical specifications that apply as well.
We have compiled three purchasing guides to provide you with an initial overview:

However, we always recommend researching the exact laws before making a purchase – and this includes the approval granted for a specific type of cupboard in your respective country.
The safety that the environmental and hazardous goods storage cupboards provide doesn't just refer to their resistance to the effects of certain substances, but also to the awareness of how they are used by authorised employees. This is, for example, ensured by:
As an employer, you are obliged to guarantee safety in your company over the full usage cycle of a hazardous good – from procurement through to disposal. KAISER+KRAFT is at your side to help you with an extensive range of products and services.
This applies for details such as sump trays, and also includes diligence in the set-up of hazardous goods storage cupboards and other essential items of equipment.
