Storage is used for a variety of reasons. It could be to fulfill a need in times of shortage, for safekeeping or as part of a logistics system. We all trust that what we store is kept safe until such time as we need it, which is a good reason for looking at the conditions in which we leave our valuable products. Another reason for examining the safety conditions of stored products is the effect of large quantities of these materials on the surroundings. Places like waste processing plants, warehouses, and petrol tanks can pose a serious threat to the surrounding area. It is important to limit the affected area if the stored products catch fire, or are destroyed in a hurricane or other natural disaster. Consequently, governments enforce local and international regulations and standards. Efectis makes efforts to ensure that these standards are followed, so as to protect users, employees, the surroundings, and the environment.
