Virtually every place of business, and even homeowners, have occasion to use
flammable or combustible liquids. Gasoline, chemicals, solvents, and a variety of
other hazardous liquids are found in varying amounts and locations. Whereas these
liquids are relatively commonplace, it is important to understand the dangers they
present and the special storage and handling procedures required to ensure safe
usage. Reviewing the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) helps determine liquid
characteristics and recommended safety practices.
Accidents and fire risks can be minimized by using proper safety equipment.
NFPA is specific on what is required of a safety can in order for it to perform as
expected under fire conditions. The basic purpose of a safety can is the control of

flammable vapors, while providing a convenient means of carrying, dispensing, and
storing up to five gallons of flammable liquid.
NFPA Code 30 1.6.40 and OSHA 1910.106(a)(29) define a safety can as, "A
Laboratories. An exclusive
listed (approved) container, of not more than 5-gal (18.9-L) capacity, having a
spring-closing lid and spout cover and so designed that it will safely relieve
internal pressure when subjected to fire exposure."
the container meets Justrite’s high performance standards.
A safety can is designed to specifically eliminate one or more of the elements
needed for a fire to start: heat, oxygen and/or fuel. These elements are the
"legs" of a fire triangle. The fire triangle demonstrates the three basic elements
that must be present simultaneously to support a fire.

Heat could be any ignition source which generates heat, such as mechanical sparks,static electricity, frayed wiring, a lit match or cigarette smoking, or a portable heater. Heat is effectively controlled with a dual-density flame arrester and self-close, leak-tight lid.
The presence of oxygen is obvious in the air we breathe. Fuel can be a combustibleor flammable liquid such as gasoline. These are controlled with a leaktight, gasketedlid to ensure outside heat sources and oxygen cannot get in (and the flammablevapors and fuel remain inside). In other words, when not being used, the lid on thecan automatically closes. The spring loaded, self-closing lid includes a gasket to helpkeep it airtight and leaktight. Each and every Justrite safety can is 100% testedunder pressure to guarantee leak-proof construction.

As an added measure of protection, safety cans offer positive pressure relief,
meaning they automatically vent at between 3 and 5 psig. This is important to
prevent rupture (or explosion) in the event of a fire.
