We just had a CAP and OSHA inspection.  I informed both that our fire
marshal  that we were allowed to have, in the whole laboratory, 1 gallon of
flammables per 100 square foot of area.  So, depending on how large your
histo lab is, you can have as many as 5 or 6 gallons at one time.  The
inspector also agreed with me that we can have stored in our flammable
cabinet 2 gallons per square foot of space in the WHOLE laboratory.   This
is what we use as our guidelines and as I said, the OSHA inspector agreed
with me.

When you are trying to meet CAP, OSHA and what ever else requirements,
what is considered a "working amount" of flammable liquid (such as
xylene or alcohol), that can be out of the flammable cabinet and on the
counter or under the hood? Thanks, Joyce!!!
