Pesticide Storage & Handling

Provide an isolated, secured area for pesticide and chemical storage. Do not use this area to store fertilizer, feed, seed, or fuel. Design the storage area to prevent unauthorized entry, use, or theft, and protect from temperature extremes. Proper chemical storage protects workers, visitors, children, and animals from unknown or accidental exposure to chemicals. Post the outside of pesticide storage facilities with visible signs to indicate the designated use. Examples of signs include "Pesticide Storage" and "No Smoking." Pesticides stored in a container larger than 55 gallons (liquid) or 100 lbs (dry) are considered bulk pesticides. Secondary containment is required when the aggregate amount of bulk pesticides reaches the threshold of 1,000 gallons for liquid pesticides or 3,000 lbs for dry pesticides, in a 365-day period. For exemptions, see KAR 4-13-25a. Secondary containment materials must be chemically compatible with products stored.
