RE: [Histonet] Flammable and acid storage

From:"Sherwood, Margaret "

Just another note:  acids and bases need to be stored separately.  We keep our
acids under our hood in lab, bases in another cabinet and flammables, of course,
in a yellow flammable safety cabinet.

Try OSHA. 29 CFR 1910.106, starting in section d

Lots of information about storing flammables. Boils down to - have to store
flammables separate from everything else.

Also the NFPA Section 30 has information.

Also, check the MSDS (a requirement of OSHA). They always have information
about incompatabilities. And many flammables and acids say to store them
separate from each other.

somwhere,but I can't recall. did you look at the CAP regulations -it may be
there. We keep them seperate and always have. Even the acids are seperate
form the bases. They can and will cross react. Rusted a few hinges in a
cabinet once.
