Just for the record, 29 CFR 1910.106, Flammable and Combustible Liquids, requires the same. On the odd chance that the refrigerator will be outside of the room, but flammables are kept inside the refrigerator, the fridge would need to meet the requirements of 1910.307, Hazardous (Classified) Locations. Where there are differences between OSHA standards and the current fire code, we usually yield to the fire code and the local fire marshal. - Diane Amell, MNOSHA >>> "ELIZABETH J FRANK"

The fire & building codes would have jurisdiction on the electrical rating of the refrigerator not OSHA. The local fire department (try the fire marshal unless you know someone else in code enforcement) would be able to provide you with guidance.

I neglected to mention that we have an explosion-proof chemical storage room with a blow-out ceiling adjacent to the chemistry lab. So the question of whether or not we need an explosion proof refrigerator needs to be answered within that context.
