We often receive many questions concerning the nature of the safety storage equipment we stock. Take a look below at some of our most frequently asked questions:
What are steel cabinets for?
Steel cabinets are ideal storage solutions for use in both offices and industrial premises or building sites. Their robust shelves are designed to take weights of up to 100kg and are available in a wide range of sizes, shelf configurations, door types and colours. Safe Options currently offer a variety of designs including one and two door models, steel cubes and a caretaker's steel cabinet featuring shelving and hanging space.
Why use COSHH storage cabinets?
Many industrial workplaces contain a variety of dangerous chemicals. Employers are required by law ensure that their staff have adequate protection from hazardous chemicals. This is where COSHH storage cabinets come in.
COSHH stands for 'Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health' and is a regulation that ensures all employers control hazardous substances. COSHH cabinets will protect you and your staff from such substances and also protect those substances from fire. Safe Options stock secure safety cabinets that fully meet COSHH regulations.
What's the best method to secure a tool site box?
There are several ways to secure your tool site box. If you are working outside then ensure you have a site box that is both waterproof and can keep out thieves. Place the box on high ground, as this will prevent rain water from gathering around it and make it easier for you to access its contents. When placing the box it is also a good idea to locate it within the sight-line of a security camera. Criminals will be less likely to attempt to break into the box if they can be caught on CCTV!
How Can Tools On Site Be Stored Safely?
A robust site box is the best way to store your expensive tools safely and securely. We currently stock site boxes in a variety of sizes, allowing you to store power tools such as jackhammers and drills. Our site boxes can also store other work equipment such as hard hats, flash-lights and face shields. Solidly built with security in mind, deadlocks and solid steel construction keep potential thieves at bay.
Why Are Medicines Stored In a Steel Cabinet?
Medicines are stored in a secure steel cabinet to avoid deterioration and from being stolen. Drugs can break down if left in warm environments, especially tablets and capsules which can then cause problems for those using them. Medical steel cabinets keep medication cool and dry, as well as keeping them locked and out of the sight of criminals.
What Is The Difference Between a COSHH Cabinet And a Metal Cabinet?
Designed to comply with Control of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations, the COSHH cabinet is purposely designed to protect users from hazardous substances and fire and are colour coded for quick identification by emergerncy services. Built to stop leakage and contamination, these cabinets will also retain their structural integrity when placed in extreme conditions.
How Do I Best Cover And Protect Oil Drums?
Enclosed drum storage units are the safest way to store oil drums. These units provide up to 30 minutes fire resistance for drums containing both chemicals and flammable liquids. Safe Options stock storage units with capacities from 2 drums up to 48 drums. Security key locks also provide protection from theft.
