How to Save Money with a Safety Cabinet
The essential advantage of a safety cabinet is the safe and legally compliant possibility of storing hazardous substances in work spaces - therefore fulfilling basic requirements in accordance with the applicable statutory regulations. But did you know that a safety cabinet not only minimises many risk situations in daily routines but can also save you time and money?

If hazardous substances are not available at the point of use but are stored in a central warehouse how does this effect daily working hours ? Our illustrative daily schedule below shows you where many companies are wasting valuable working time - and how decentralised storage in safety cabinets can help.
The close-to-workplace storage of hazardous substances not only minimises risks in the daily routine, but also helps you to avoid unnecessary travel times and to make work processes more efficient. Depending on the size of the company, several minutes per day can be estimated for in-house transport. Even if an employee only spends 6 minutes a day, over time that equates to a lot of lost working hours:
6 minutes per day
30 minutes per day
2 hours per month
3 working days per year
As a guide, a single employee can spend up to 3 working days a year transporting hazardous substances from A to B. Time-consuming transport can be significantly reduced with the use of a safety cabinet - the working time can be used more effectively and save you money! The initial cost of the safety cabinet has then quickly paid for itself.
Saving transport at the expense of safety can also be expensive! If hazardous substances are stored improperly and damage occurs
Your insurance claim expires
The partners are personally liable for any damage to property or personal injury
This can lead to incalculable production losses

Protect hazardous materials and sensitive work areas from unauthorised access
Companies that handle and store hazardous substances also have a responsibility to protect them from unauthorised access. With access restrictions, you not only ensure that theft or manipulation, for example, are made more difficult. You also prevent employees who have not been appropriately instructed from gaining access to hazardous substances or sensitive work areas.

It is therefore up to the companies themselves to define and implement suitable measures.
