I am moving offices and have probably 30 years' worth of ANSI/NFPA/CGA standards. I am fine with keeping those no longer updated (like the NFPA standard on oxidizer storage) but is there any point in keeping the last 3 editions of (for example) the ANSI standard on eyewashes and safety showers? I have limited space and no time to peruse the history/evolution of safety and compliance a practices...
Many thanks for your thoughts on this-
