Hand Sanitizer Fire Hazards

June 22, 2020 - June 23, 2020

Alcohol Based Hand Sanitizer (ABHS) contains ethyl alcohol, which readily evaporates at room temperature into an ignitable vapor, and is considered a flammable liquid. Although the incidence of fires related to ABHS is very low, it is vital that ABHS is stored safely and that bulk dispensers are installed and maintained correctly.
Follow local and state fire safety laws and standards
Building officers, local, and state fire marshals work together to protect patients and residents by enforcing fire safety rules.

Fire safety includes activities that
-reduce sources of ignition,
-ensures storage of flammable liquids in a safe manner, and
-establishes methods for quick exits in case of fire.
