Have proper storage and handling systems

The manufacturer’s instructions must be followed for all systems installed to store and handle chemicals. Anyone who operates, tests, maintains or decommissions the system must be trained.

Also make sure chemical containers are secured to stable foundations and supports.

When you no longer need to store or handle chemicals, clear any chemical handling system of chemicals. If that’s not possible, label the system listing any hazardous chemicals not removed.

When you no longer need to store chemicals in an underground tank, you must remove the tank.

If your tank – whether underground, partially underground or fully mounded – has been used to store flammable gases or liquids, notify us when it has been removed.
