Since the advent of the industrial revolution, the use of non-water-based chemicals has increased dramatically. Exposure to the hazards associated with these chemicals has also increased. One potential hazard is flammability. To prevent fires, hazardous liquids need special precautions taken for their storage, handling and use. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and the International Code Council (ICC) have developed guidelines for the safe storage and use of flammable and combustible liquids under the Uniform Fire Code. These guidelines are not mandatory unless a federal, state or local authority chooses to use them. Mandatory regulations have been developed, however, by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA has specified safe handling practices in three (3) separate mandatory regulations for: • General Industry (29 CFR 1910.106) • Construction Industry (29 CFR 1926.152) • Shipyard Industry (29 CFR 1915.36).
