Security of your poisons cabinet
You must take all necessary measures to prevent theft and vandalism. This means your poison cabinets must have secure locks. For added security, they can be fixed to the wall or floor.
Storage of poisons
To comply with the CoSHH and health and safety legislation, you should make sure you use an appropriate poisons cabinet, such as those supplied by Work Area Ltd.
