Ensuring the safe usage of hand sanitizer
It’s imperative that your facility maintains compliancy with local fire codes, in that you have approved methods of fire extinguishment for the specific hazard being produced and stored. If that material has changed, contact your fire protection company immediately.
Some important things your fire protection company will review include your facility’s fire sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. The density, size, and type of sprinkler head are all dependent on numerous factors. And there are certain types and sizes of fire extinguishers to be used for liquids in high quantities.
If your facility is changing the type of material being stored, you are required to reevaluate your facility’s fire protection system. Not only is it a code violation if you fail to do so, but your insurance company will also have some requirements as well. Maintaining the safety of your facility and all employees is critical, so if you’ve had a change in what you store or manufacture, contact your fire protection company as soon as possible.
