NEW HEALTH AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
The Health and Safety requirements for businesses who store Hazardous products have changed considerably and you should be well aware of the new duties and obligations under the new laws and regulations.
If you are storing or intend to store or distribute chemicals and are not sure of what you can or how much you can store in-house, or even what the legal requirements for storage are, we can provide a storage and distribution service solution that puts safety first.
