Do cleaning chemicals need to be locked away?

No matter the workplace, it always feels good to work in a clean/tidy environment. But in order to keep the workplace clean, we need to store chemicals in which we can use to aid us in removing a whole load of dirtiness!

The problem with these chemicals is that they can be seriously harmful to our bodies if we don’t store it and use it correctly.

Locking up cleaning chemicals is sensible if vulnerable people such as children or learning-impaired persons are able to gain access to the chemicals. But if that isn’t the case, cleaning chemicals should be fine to be left in an unlocked cabinet, so long as they are stored properly i.e upright with the lid/seal properly attached.
