 Storing Chemicals

Advice on storing chemicals includes storing all substances in an area where you can contain spills. Keep chemical containers within an impermeable secondary containment area that will hold liquids if the main containers leak or break.

Secondary containment areas include bunds, bunded pallets or spill pallets, sump pallets, bunded storage units and storage cabinets with integral sumps. If you have one oil storage container in a bund, the bund must be able to hold 110% of its volume.

If you have more than one container, your bund must be able to contain at least 110% of the volume of the largest container or 25% of the total volume you are likely to store, whichever is greater.

Our bunded tanks offer high level security in the event of waste spills. The inner tanks are reliable enough, however the outside bund is always there as successful back-up.

Maintaining storage areas

  • Cover storage areas wherever possible to avoid rainwater collecting
  • Inspect bunds regularly and remove any rainwater – if the water is contaminated you may need to dispose of it as hazardous/special waste
  • Locate storage tanks as far as possible from drains and watercourses
  • Our tanks can be fitted with leakage detection devices, if needed, to show you if the tank is overfilled or leaking
  • Lock storage tanks when not in use, to prevent unauthorised access and reduce the risk of vandalism.
  • Clearly label all tanks with their contents and storage capacity, to prevent overfilling or incorrect filling of storage containers. With Tuffa’s storage tanks, any colour can be chosen by the consumer to identify the liquid being stored.
