  • Six Pesticides Your Golf Course Should Keep Safe

    Posted on November 12, 2013 by admin

    Every year, an estimated one billion pounds of pesticides are applied to farms, forests, lawns and golf courses in the United States. And over 17,000 pesticide products are available on the market today.

    To control pests and protect turfs, your golf course likely uses a combination of pesticides, including fungicides, herbicides and insecticides. In spite of their advantages in maintaining your course, pesticides can harm your golf course’s members and employees.

    But pesticides carry lower risk to you, your employees and your golf course’s members when stored properly. Keeping pesticides in a locked, secure cabinet in a well-ventilated area is the first step towards safety.

    Ensure safety for everyone on your golf course with proper storage for these six pesticides.

    • Popular golf course fungicides (fungus killers) include thiram and quintozene. Between 60 and 77% of golf courses use these fungicides annually.
    •  Three common herbicides (weed killers) your golf course may use include turf herbicides 2, 4-D and mecoprop. Over 80% of golf courses use some combination of these to keep weeds under control.
    •  The most popular insecticide (bug killer) on golf courses is malathion, used at about one third of golf courses nationwide. Because pests differ among regions, your golf course might choose a unique insecticide combination.

    Proper pesticide storage decreases risks to a level accepted by pesticide regulatory agencies like the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Keep these chemicals – and those who use them – safe with Securall’s line of pesticide storage cabinets.

    All Securall pesticide storage cabinets feature double wall construction with 1 ½” air space. Cabinets are finished in two-part urethane paint, with a warning label for additional security for golf course members. Each includes galvanized steel shelving, vents with flash arrestors, a continuous piano hinge and a leak-proof, 2” deep sill, to protect your golf course employees from accidental spills.

    Furthermore, Securall’s pesticide storage cabinet doors are three-point, self-latching (non sparking) with a flush-mounted locking handle. Also included is a static grounding bolt and adjustable zinc plated leveling legs. Cabinets are manufactured with reinforced 18-gauge all-welded construction. These features make Securall cabinets a long-lasting, wise investment for your golf course.

     

    Choose the right size cabinets for your golf course’s pesticide needs, from 12-gallon to 120-gallon capacities. All Securall pesticide storage cabinets are FM approved, comply with current OSHA regulations and meet NFPA standards.

  • Five Reasons to Buy Safety Cabinets

    Posted on May 3, 2013 by admin

    No matter what you and your company store, some items you use daily require extra care and extra attention. Flammable materials, combustible substances, volatile products, dangerous chemicals, sensitive documents, valuable items and even medications call for security storage. And there are many reasons to consider safety cabinets as you determine the best way to achieve security.

    1. Stay compliant with critical safety regulations. When you choose a safety cabinet, you’re choosing storage in compliance with critical security directives. Securall strives to know and understand the most current OSHA and NFPA guidelines, which dictate the use and design of safety storage products. All Securall safety cabinets comply with current OSHA regulations and are designed in accordance with the standards of NFPA Code 30.

    2. Improve efficiency by allowing safe, secure storage near the point of use. Safety cabinets create a more effective workplace by storing items securely right where they are needed. Place critical documents in the area of the office where employees need them the most, for example. Or store flammable paints and sealants in the area of the factory where refinishing happens. Safety cabinets allow for a streamlined workplace.

    3. Protect your organization’s public image. Nothing damages a good reputation like a workplace emergency. Safety cabinets keep flammable, combustible and volatile substances secure, preventing accidents and damage. Preserving safety keeps your company out of the headlines for emergencies and in the headlines for success.

    4. Keep your valuable assets out of the wrong hands. Safety cabinets protect your organization’s sensitive documents and critical items safe from theft. Safety cabinets provide a level of security that both defends and deters potential robberies.

    5. Protect your organization’s most important resource: your people. As an employer, protecting employees is your first priority. Proper storage of dangerous items prevents emergencies, from minor to even life-threatening. With safety cabinets, you don’t leave well-being to chance. Look out for the welfare of those you employ with safety cabinets.

    The Securall line of storage products was first manufactured in 1965. The products have evolved with time, and each bears the company’s legacy of reliability, safety and dependability. Safety comes standard on all our products. Choose Securall flammable safety cabinets for your company’s critical assets.

  • The new OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS)

    Posted on April 9, 2013 by admin

    The new HCS rule from OSHA sets new precedence and standards for an entire industry that puts safety as it's number #1 priority.

    Nearly five million businesses, ranging from small SMB's to large enterprises that have  compliance requirements for the safe storage, use, manufacturing or distribution of chemicals will be affected - this includes approximately 90,000 manufacturers, distributors or importers. With new rulings come new training - because improved safety is the goal of the new HCS standard, training will be required. The time, costs and upgrades for HCS are important and potentially cumbersone, particularly to small business.

    What is HCS 2012?
    The hazard communication standard 2012 brings forth a new set of rules, requirements and criteria for the classification of hazards for both human health and physical security. In addition to these compliance issues the HCS 2012 includes the full identification of OSHA-defined hazards.

    Compliance issues have always been time consuming - large enterprises will need to take an entire new look at current compliance practices, storage of chemicals and combustibles and rethink the way manage these new OSHA requirements. Businesses both small and large will be required to provide full classification of substances, products, chemicals, flammables, combustibles, etc and ensure the integrity of the assigned classifications. Safety Data Sheets (aka SDS) may require revisions to ensure full conformance with the new HCS 2012 rule.

    Our goal is to help people like you that play an important and vital role in the health and human safety of your companies or clients. Whether you are in physical plant security or facilities management or assess environment risk for your company or consult with small businesses, we are your best source for the most up to date information on the safe storage of chemicals, substances, products and combustibles that must meet OSHA, NFPA and/or EPA requirements for storage.

    We can help you maintain the highest levels of safety and compliance for the storage of flammables and combustibles and the HCS standard that may affect your company immediately or over the long term.

    In our next blog post we will go into more detail regarding the hazard classifications, substances and mixtures and how our line of Securall Storage Cabinets can help you with any possible compliance issues - and more importantly improve safety and reduce risk.
