applicable to the work being performed at an individual site or facility. It is the responsibility of each
site or facility to determine the applicability of specific requirements to their work and how they are
implemented. The reference sources for the requirements included in this chapter can be used to
determine the applicability of those requirements to the work being performed.

Consolidated Requirements
[NOTE: The information that follows is a consolidation of existing Federal
safety and health requirements and National Standards that relate to the
storage of chemicals. It therefore contains "shall" statements that are taken
29CFR1910.6
from, or based on "shall" statements in those existing requirements. While
NFPA and CGA requirements that are referenced here are not, in and of
themselves mandatory, they are made mandatory by OSHA regulation
29CFR1910.6, which incorporates them by reference. DOE O 440.1A
mandates compliance with OSHA regulations found in Title 29 of the Code
of Federal Regulations (CFR). NFPA and CGA requirements referenced
here are thereby made mandatory for DOE contractors through contracts
that include DOE O 440.1A. Please see the Introduction to this section of
the DOE Chemical Management Handbook for more information.]
4.1 General
4.1.1 Facilities shall be evaluated to determine chemical storage
NFPA 45, 7.2.3.3
limits, allowable chemical container storage sizes, and stacking
limits. Quantities of chemicals stored shall remain within those
limits.17
4.1.2 The identification or design of chemical storage areas (see
NFPA 430, 2.1.1;
definition),or maintenance work on chemical storage areas shall
NFPA 430, 2.10.1;
be reviewed.18
NFPA 432, 4.7.1
4.1.2.1 New facility design shall take into account the need for
NFPA 430, 2.6.1
containment to protect the environment from oxidizers,
fire suppression agents, and decomposition products.
4.1.2.2 Approval (see definition) of chemical storage areas shall
NFPA 430, 2.6.2
take into consideration the potential for large quantities
of smoke and toxic fumes, especially as storage affects
17
Facility chemical quantity limits stem primarily from the local fire and building codes. NFPA 45 may modify
these for laboratories, by local ordinances or by other codes that are specific to one particular class of chemicals
such as NFPA 30, "Flammable and Combustible Liquids".
18
There are restrictions and requirements for welding and cutting activities at locations where chemicals are used
and stored. Consult your local welding and cutting program to determine what these requirements are.
