Hazardous Spaces

Why You Need The Right Kind Of Pesticide Storage Cabinets by Wholesale Safety Storage AustraliaClass 6 dangerous goods, such as toxic substances and pesticides are potentially hazardous, and should not be stored in the same containers or close to food, potable water, animal feed, medical supplies, protective clothing, seed, fertilisers, or fuels. Not only will this separation prevent contamination of these products, but it also helps to deter the movement of vapours, dust, or spills that reduce the likelihood of accidental exposure.

Never Store Near Food Or Drink Containers

Many people using common workspaces might recognise the shape and colour of pesticide containers as something less harmful. However, whether eating, drinking, or causing accidental exposure within the area, these harmful substances can wreak havoc on a home or business. Keeping them away from consumables ensures there is minimal chance of harm to people around.

Store Chemicals In Cool, Dry, And Well-Lit Areas

The storage area should prevent temperature extremes, as very high or very low temperatures can cause chemical substances to deteriorate. Proper lighting helps ensure the correct items are chosen for each task, and no mix-ups can occur. In addition, any leaks or spills can be seen and cleaned up immediately, rather than making their way onto the floor.

Store Dry Products Above Liquid Products

This will prevent the liquid chemicals from spilling or leaking onto the dry ones below and contaminating them. This is a good rule for many chemical or storage areas as it ensures that any spills can be contained correctly and cleaned, rather than falling onto other products and causing further harm or reaction.

Never Store Excess Fluids In Equipment

To avoid the problem of the excess mixture, carefully calculate and measure the amount of pesticide required for each application. After applying, if excess mixture remains in application equipment, such as sprayers and spreaders, it should be applied according to label directions to your property until none remains in the tank.

Pesticide storage cabinets are beneficial as a management and safety solution, giving you reliable, durable containers to ensure the good containment of your chemicals. These products should always be stored correctly at home or work to ensure safety on-site. Contact us today to find out more.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
