    •  Flammable and Combustible Materials  Where possible, substitute flammable materials with safer, less/non flammable, non-toxic materials.  Store flammable liquids properly.  At least one fire extinguisher in the area.  Large storage areas should have a fire protection system installed.  Use flammable liquid storage cabinets where greater quantities of liquids are needed.  Contrary to popular belief, these cabinets are not designed to contain a fire, but to prevent an outside fire from reaching the contents for a period of 10 minutes.
    •  Miscellaneous Requirements  For automotive and industrial shops, at the end of the work day or as necessary:  Clean all work areas of oil to prevent buildup  Return all oils and flammables to their proper storage cabinet/area  Turn off all power equipment or unplug  Turn off all fuel valves and power to such systems
