Chemical Storage in Refrigerators and Freezers
This procedure describes the requirements for storing chemicals and biologicals in refrigerators/freezers to mitigate the consequences of chemical leakage or reactions that may lead to fire or explosion, potentially resulting in fatalities, serious injury, and damage to property/research. Additionally, this procedure outlines the necessity of posting warning signs on refrigerators/freezers to prevent contamination of food and drink by restricting commingled storage with laboratory chemicals and biologicals.  This procedure is applicable to all individuals who store chemicals at the Chicago Area Facilities (CAF), and does not pre-empt or eliminate any more stringent requirements of other safety procedures, policies or guides.
