Incompatible Chemical Storage

From the archives of the Enforcement and Compliance Listserv for Hazardous Waste Generators

September 6, 2005

Be careful not to store incompatible chemicals together. Every year fires, explosions and chemical reactions that can cause illness and death occur at sites that are improperly storing hazardous chemicals. It is essential you and your employees are safe. If the materials are waste, there are Missouri Hazardous Waste Regulations (PUB919) that apply to this storage.

Federal regulations 40 CFR Part 265 Appendix V lists examples of incompatible chemicals (the list is not all inclusive so you must be knowledgeable about the chemicals your business uses).
