I was wondering if anyone is aware of any regulatory guidelines pertaining to the transport of chemicals on elevators. Especially liquid nitrogen, high pressure gas cylinders and highly volatile solvents.
If there are not any regulatory drivers…..do any of you have policies in place to instruct proper transport?
We only have one elevator in our science building and people regularly transport their chemicals using the elevator. We were wondering if we should require them to not ride with the chemicals.
I’d appreciate your thoughts. This comes at a time where we are trying to justify the cost of including a freight elevator to the design of a new science building….or…..to renovation plans of our current building.
