Is there a code reference that prevents the storage of cardboard, paper, etc. within flammable cabinets?
I can only find the code that prevents storage of incompatible materials. Is there something more appropriate?
I am thinking no
Some items come in cardboard boxes, and box and all are stuck in there.
Can't be any more of a hazard as is already in there.
I saw a recent posting regarding flammable liquid storage cabinets that has the following statement. "Do not store anything on top of the cabinet." I believe that it is a good management practice not to store items on top of a cabinet however I not sure that it is a regulatory (OSHA, federal or states) or NFPA requirement. I recognize that there is regaultaory and standard language regarding housekeeping. Certainly the storage of flammable liquids outside of the cabinet would be an issue. If anyone has a regulatory or standard wording that does prevent the storage of items on a flammable liquid storage cabinet, please let me know.
