In the factory safe transport and storage of chemicals play a key role in minimizing the risk of failures, accidents or exposure of employees to hazardous substances. Here are some important aspects for safely transporting and storing chemicals:

Labels and signs

Before starting the transport or storage of chemicals, it is necessary to accurately label the containers in accordance with applicable regulations. Labels should contain information about the name of the substance, its properties and hazards, and precautions.

Specialist containers

Chemicals should be stored in specially adapted containers that resist chemical reactions and prevent leakage. Such containers will be all marked according to the UN standard, which includes labels, pictograms and codes for hazards related to various types of chemical substances and hazardous materials.

The UN standard is intended to provide uniform hazard information to facilitate the safe transportation, storage and use of these materials around the world. Labeling according to this standard helps workers, carriers and others identify and respond appropriately to the hazards of hazardous substances.

Proper storage conditions

Storage of chemicals should be done under the right conditions, such as proper temperature, humidity and ventilation. Any substances that require special storage conditions should be stored in accordance with these guidelines and standards.

Separate storage

Chemicals should be stored separately from other substances that may be reactive with each other. Avoiding even accidental contact of different substances reduces the risk of a runaway chemical reaction.

Staff training

Employees responsible for the transport and storage of chemicals should be properly trained in safety rules and procedures for transport and storage.

Access only for authorized people

Access to stored chemicals should be restricted to authorized and properly trained personnel only. This will help reduce the risk of accidents, exposure and potential theft.

Emergency procedures

The production facility should have emergency procedures in place in the event of a spill, fire or other dangerous situation. Employees should be trained to deal with such situations.

Transportation in compliance with regulations

When transporting chemicals off-site, comply with applicable laws and requirements for the transport of hazardous materials. For land transport in Europe, the ADR agreement (Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road), which sets out standards for packaging, labeling and documentation. In the case of air transport, international IATA regulations (International Air Transport Association) impose specific requirements on carriers to guarantee safety during air transport.

All regulations and guidelines are aimed at minimizing the risk and protecting people, the environment and property during the movement of these substances.

Ensuring the safe transport and storage of chemicals is a key element in protecting health and the environment. Compliance with safety procedures and rules helps to minimize the risk of potential threats related to the transport and storage of chemical substances.

We care about compliance with the highest standards in terms of transport and storage safety, which allows us to operate effectively, minimizing risk and ensuring the protection of our employees and the environment.
