3.16.10. Handling, storage and use of hazardous products
(1)  The storage and handling of hazardous products within the meaning of the Hazardous Products Information Regulation (chapter S-2.1, r. 8.1) must be carried out in such a way as to prevent them from spilling or catching fire. The following measures must therefore be taken:
(a)  any hazardous products which, in mixing with other substances, may cause fires or explosions or may give off flammable or toxic gases must be stored separately;
(b)  receptacles, piping and apparatuses must be kept in good condition;
(c)  floors or shelves onto which a product has been spilled must be cleaned immediately.
(2)  Only the quantity of flammable liquid and combustibles contained in safety bottles and necessary for one work day may be stored in a building under construction, unless it can be stored in a ventilated room having a fire-resistance of at least 2 hours.
(3)  Where a hazardous product is transferred from one container to another, the receptacle used must be safe for use with the product transferred.
(4)  In addition to conforming to section 3.13.5, any cylinder of gas under pressure must not be
(a)  lifted with slings or magnets; or
(b)  exposed to shocks, in particular, shock caused by a fall.
(5)  Oxygen must not be used for the following purposes:
(a)  operating compressed-air tools;
(b)  ventilation;
(c)  obtaining pressure;
(d)  cleaning;
(e)  starting internal combustion engines.
(6)  Corrosive materials must be handled with care and must be stored:
(a)  away from areas in which the risk of fire is high;
(b)  away from combustive substances;
(c)  away from direct sunlight;
(d)  in cool and well ventilated areas;
(e)  in receptacles that are kept closed.
(7)  Toxic or dangerously reactive substances must be stored:
(a)  away from areas in which the risk of fire is high and away from heat sources;
(b)  away from combustive substances;
(c)  in cool and well ventilated areas.
For the purposes of this section, corrosive materials , oxydizing material , toxic substances and dangerously reactive substances mean a hazardous product that belongs to the corresponding hazard classes in the table provided for in section 70 of the Regulation respecting occupational health and safety (chapter S-2.1, r. 13).
