How Well Do You Know the OSHA Paint Storage Regulations?

Many industrial paints and inks contain flammable (easily set on fire) or combustible (able to catch fire and burn easily) materials that can pose a danger to workers. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration has implemented a series of regulations regarding the safe use of paint storage cabinets in an industrial setting.

For example:

  • You may not keep more than 60 gallons of flammable or 120 gallons of combustible liquids in a single paint storage cabinet.
  • You may not store more than 25 gallons of flammable or combustible liquids in a room outside of approved paint storage cabinets.
  • You may not have more than three paint storage cabinets in a single area.
  • Quantities of paint or ink that exceed these limits must be kept in storage rooms that meet the requirements listed in the Standard Methods of Fire Test of Building Construction and Materials.

OSHA and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) also have strict guidelines regarding the safe design and construction of paint storage cabinets:

  • The cabinet's bottom, top and sides must be at least 18-gauge sheet iron.
  • The cabinet must have double-walled construction with at least 1-1/2" of airspace.
  • The joints must be riveted, welded or tightly sealed in an acceptable manner.
  • Cabinet doors must be raised at least two inches from the bottom to prevent spillage and equipped with a three-point latch.
