Bob et al,
I can try to provide an answer for question #2...Many times I had placed a pad of activated carbon in the flammable cabinet. This did work on most occasions to mitigate many odors that would accumulate within the cabinet.
Changing them out frequently was done as well. It seemed to help in our situation.
An actual lining? I don't know if this is possible...
Hope this helps.

Two additional questions from Bob Alaimo for DCHAS-L:

Thanks for posting my previous question on fire extinguishers. I received a number of helpful answers. Now I would like to pose a couple of new questions.

1. Those serving in the role of CHO, what is your reporting relationship to management?

2. Is anyone aware of a explosion proof refrigerator with an odor impervious lining? Do any manufacturers have such a unit?

Many thanks,

Bob Alaimo
