An Exercise in Safe Storage

06 January 2011

Jones Stroud based near Preston is a member of the multi-national Krempel Group and is a noted name in the field of designing and manufacturing high grade composites and insulation and sleeving products in varied materials and finishes which are essential aspects of production across commercial sectors.


The Challenge

The promimity to residential areas of exposed open storage of numerous drums of chemicals meant constant attention in order to meet health & safety regulations such as COMAH and DSEAR and meet especially the needs of the local authority for environmental permits – as well as looking to save space and improve overall image of the premises.

The Solution

Phil Taberner created an internal HSE document highlighting aspects such as improved on-site house keeping, reduced amounts of internally stored solvents and resins and the purchase of suitable external cabinets and internal bund pallets.This was approved by the management and he turned to the specialist storage experts Denios. The result is a confined, dedicated “park” of heavy duty systems containers within which the drums and IBCs are safely and tidily stored. The Denios containers vary in configuration and include heat insulated and open sided versionsThis has resulted in less drums and keeping them in better and safer condition. Mr Taberner also attended one of the famous Denios seminars which are delivered under the IOSH umbrella.

Benefits

As Mr Taberner observes “Only Denios were able to provide different types of containers for varied contents and I was very comfortable that they know what they are about. The numerous epoxy resins and solvents involved include Toluene, Xylene, Acetone, White Spiirt and MEK The area has been transformed. It nows looks much more modern and cleaner which impresses customers and only appropriate people and vehicles need to be in the area. And interestingly I have also noticed a distinct improvement in staff morale as they realise that we are a thoughtful and progressive company.
