When I need an OSHA citation for safe storage of chemicals, I use 29 CFR 1910.176 (b), which requires that "storage of material shall not create a hazard." To comply with this rule, you have to know stuff that's not in the regulations. Consider industry - standard documents, like the Prudent Practices books.
