Subject: Flammable storage grounding requirements
Does anyone know if any regulatory agency (federal, local or state) that
would mandate that flammable cabinets be grounded if flammable liquids
are just being stored in them and are not being dispensed while being
housed in the cabinet?  I have checked the OSHA website and grounding is
only necessary if you are dispensing Class I flammable liquids and my
search of the internet has referenced NFPA 70 and NFPA 30 but I do not
have copies of those publications.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
