Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
If your business stores any type of chemicals you must take all necessary steps to prevent pollution. Chemicals you may store include cleaning products, pesticides, glues, dyes and solvents.
The chemicals you store and use could cause pollution if they spill onto land, enter surface waters or groundwater or are released into the air. Many chemical substances are also harmful to human health. If you cause or allow pollution to occur you may be prosecuted and fined. Your business could suffer from lost contracts, production downtime, clean up costs and increased insurance premiums.
This guide explains how you can store chemicals safely to minimise the risk of pollution and how you can store chemicals safely in vehicles, for example if you need to transport chemicals for your work.
