Standard Pesticide Cabinet Questions
Pesticides are hazardous and need to be stored safely to avoid harm to people, animals and the environment. The safest way to store pesticides is in their original containers, with labels intact and instructions followed. For large quantities, it is recommended to use an approved pesticide storage cabinet that locks and properly segregates pesticides to prevent contamination and spills. Eagle provides pesticide safety cabinets that meet NFPA Code 30 and OSHA requirements. The following set of questions and answers explain how to store pesticides and fertilizers safely.
How should you store pesticides?
Pesticides present a substantial danger to people and the environment when improperly stored. Because of this, certain states regulate the storage of pesticides in small portable containers. For your general safety, store pesticides in their original containers according to the instructions on the label. If you work with large quantities of pesticides for agriculture, lawn care, or golf course management, it’s recommended to store them in an approved pesticide storage cabinet that locks. A safety cabinet properly segregates pesticides stored at the worksite, and eliminates the potential for drips and spills during the transfer process. All of Eagle’s pesticide safety cabinets meet NFPA Code 30 and OSHA requirements.
What protective measures should be taken regarding storage and usage of pesticides?
Safe pesticide storage is just as important as safe application. If you don’t store pesticides properly, you put animals, people and the environment at risk of poisoning. When storing pesticides, make sure to read and follow the product’s instructions for safe storage. Do not remove labels from the container or transfer the pesticides to a different container. Since pesticides are flammable, approved safety cabinets are recommended for handling and storing pesticides. As a general rule of thumb, store dissimilar pesticides separately. This will prevent one from contaminating the other or the accidental use of the wrong pesticide.
Why do we keep pesticides in a cabinet?
Pesticides are hazardous to humans, animals and the environment. Because of this, there are strict requirements for how they should be handled and stored. Eagle’s specially-designed safety cabinets are used to segregate pesticides to prevent contamination. They’re FM approved, and meet OSHA and NFPA 30 code.
Can all pesticides be stored together?
There are several different types of pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, rodenticides and acaricides. All of these serve different functions, and therefore should be stored and handled according to the product’s instructions. Eagle sells pesticide safety cabinets for storing pesticides, fertilizers and other similar chemicals. They’re FM-Approved, and meet NFPA Code 30 and OSHA requirements.
