Flammable Liquids

The use, transportation, and storage of flammable liquids present both physical and health hazards to persons, property, and the environment. Therefore, Kennesaw State University (KSU) has developed a Flammable Liquids Policy and Procedures, which are consistent with the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.106 “Flammable and Combustible Liquids standards.” It is the policy of KSU, that only trained “Authorized Persons” are assigned duties that involved the use, transportation, and storage of such liquids or related equipment. KSU requires that all flammable and combustible liquids be guarded against ignition and/or heat sources which have the potential to initiate combustion. Flammable and combustible liquids shall be stored, and transported in only authorized approved safety cans, vessels, or tanks and shall be labeled accordingly. KSU prohibits such liquids to be in residential type plastic containers. Compressed gas shall always be protected against damage and exposure to high temperatures, and only stored in authorized locations.
