Subject: RE: [DCHAS-L] flammable cabinet question

"I recently bought several safety cabinets, and I found that it is the state that mandates self closing doors.  Luckily, we were able to purchase ones with manual doors."
This spooks me. The above statement implies that even though self-closing doors are mandated by state law (probably a UFC state) but inconvenient, you have decided to ignore the law. I hope that's not what I read.
It's hard to convince employees of the importance of safety rules and standards when we ourselves ignore the "inconvenient" ones.
