[Histonet] Flammable Regulations for Formalin

From:"Bauer, Karen"

Hi Histonetters,

Formalin has a flammable rating of 1.  EPA says that more than 10
gallons of flammable and combustible liquids should be stored in a
flammables cabinet or specially designed room.  Storage in flammable
cabinets must not exceed 60 gallons.  How is everyone storing their
saved tissues? We currently store ours in a vented cabinet(not a
flammable cabinet).  Do flammables with a rating of 1 have to be stored
the same as flammables with ratings of 3?
