    What is your reference used to support this statement?
    Question: How many Flammable Safety Cabinets can I have in one area?

    Answer: No more than three safety cabinets may be present in a single storage area. The local authority having jurisdiction (usually a fire marshal) will determine the number based on specific criteria such as ingress and egress, fire suppression / water sprinkler systems, etc. They can mandate whether zero, one, or three cabinets may be placed in any given area. They will also determine how far apart they need to be placed.

      Hi there, thanks for the question. This requirement is taken from 29 CFR 1926.152(b). Although this is a construction regulation, it is regarded as best practice in general industry as well.
