Chemical Retention Regulation: The Complete Guide

The regulation of non-corrosive pollutant chemical retention is a crucial aspect of managing pollutant substances in work environments. Companies must comply with strict standards to ensure the safety of employees, the environment, and the public. In this article, we will explore the general rules and standards in force, review the various types of accessories available to meet these requirements, and see what solutions are available to you at ManOrga.

Regulations and Standards for Chemical Retention

The regulation of chemical retention is governed by a set of rules and standards established by competent authorities. They aim to minimize risks associated with the handling, storage, and disposal of hazardous chemicals. Among the most commonly used standards is ISO 14001, which specifically addresses environmental management and includes guidelines for handling chemical substances.

Additionally, organizations like the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) issue strict directives and rules regarding the handling and storage of these products. They define retention requirements and impose obligations on companies to ensure the safety of workers and the environment.

Finally, the decree of February 2, 1998, is an important element to consider, imposing specific standards for the retention of chemical products.

Types of Chemical Retention Equipment

To comply with these regulations, companies need various accessories designed specifically for chemical retention. Among these solutions are retention trays, secure storage cabinets, anti-leak barriers, and chemical absorbents.

Retention trays are essential devices for containing product leaks and spills. They are available in a range of sizes and materials to meet the specific needs of each company and the type of product to be stored or handled. Secure storage cabinets are also important for proper chemical storage, keeping them away from heat sources and other incompatible substances.

Anti-leak barriers are used to contain accidental spills and prevent their spread in the environment. They are often made from resistant materials to ensure maximum effectiveness. Finally, chemical absorbents such as pads and sheets are used to absorb spilled liquids, reducing the risk of slips and falls.

To complement accessories meeting chemical retention standards, there are insulated wall cabinets, providing thermal protection, and multi-risk safety cabinets, offering enhanced security with robust walls and advanced locking systems.
