Incorrect chemical storage practices can lead to inadvertent reactions between incompatible materials with potential to cause harm, fire or even explosions. All chemicals should be stored in such a manner as to prevent incompatible materials from being accidentally mixed together in the event of breakage of one or more containers in storage area, or to prevent the formation and build-up of reactive vapours. Correct storage of chemicals within storage areas / stock rooms, workshops and laboratories is еssential for safety and health of workers. The purpose of correct storage is to maintain control over the chemicals so that they can be both stored and retrieved safely.
The purpose of this paper is to point out hazards present during storage of phenol and necessity for respect all applicable rules and regulations in order to eliminate the hazards for workers` health and to reduce the harmful environmental impact.
