The storage of chemicals with a high hazard potential can be a rather complicated process, deciphering SDS sheets and determining how to segregate various chemicals can be challenging.

In order to protect laboratory staff and the environment as efficiently as possible, the law requires proper handling and storage of hazardous materials in working areas. This webinar will outine the legal situation, explain the key differences between the various safety storage cabinets and exemplifies how to select the most appropriate cabinet for your particular application or situation.
