- Acetones shall not be used as an extender for ketone peroxides or for cleaning equipment in which ketone peroxides have been used.
- Containers used to hold organic peroxides, when completely emptied, shall be removed to an outside storage area for disposal. Empty containers shall not be used for any other purpose.
- Spilled liquid and paste forms of peroxides shall be absorbed by a noncombustible material such as vermiculite or perlite, swept up immediately, and removed to an outside storage area for disposal.
- Organic peroxides shall be separated from all sources of heat including steam pipes, radiators, open flames or sparks, and solar radiation.
Indoor storage of organic peroxides in amounts exceeding the maximum allowable quantity per control area indicated in Table 5003.1.1(1) shall be in accordance with Sections 5001, 5003, 5004 and this chapter.
Indoor storage of unclassified detonable organic peroxides that are capable of detonation in their normal shipping containers under conditions of fire exposure shall be stored in accordance with Chapter 56.
In addition to the requirements of the California Building Code, detached storage buildings for Class I, II, III, IV and V organic peroxides shall be located in accordance with Table 6204.1.2. Detached buildings containing quantities of unclassified detonable organic peroxides in excess of those set forth in Table 5003.8.2 shall be located in accordance with Table 5604.5.2(1).

For SI: 1 foot = 304.8 mm, 1 pound = 0.454 kg.
- Where the amount of organic peroxide stored exceeds this amount, the minimum separation shall be 50 feet.
An approved supervised smoke detection system in accordance with Section 907 shall be provided in rooms or areas where Class I, II or III organic peroxides are stored. Activation of the smoke detection system shall sound a local alarm.
Storage arrangements for organic peroxides shall be in accordance with Table 6204.1.7 and shall comply with all of the following:
- Containers and packages in storage areas shall be closed.
- Bulk storage shall not be in piles or bins.
- A minimum 2-foot (610 mm) clear space shall be maintained between storage and uninsulated metal walls.
- Fifty-five-gallon (208 L) drums shall not be stored more than one drum high.

- Dispensing or weighing of organic peroxides shall not take place in the storage area.
- A section of the manufacturing area near the point of use shall be set aside for dispensing and weighing of peroxides. This section shall be clean and procedures shall be established to eliminate contamination with promoters or chemicals of any type.
- Where Class 1, 2, or 3 peroxides are handled, there shall be provided electrical wiring and equipment in accordance with Chapter 9 of the LAMC (Electrical Code).
- All tanks, metal containers, and pipelines shall be grounded or bonded in an approved manner to prevent the accumulation of static electricity.
- All supplies of organic peroxides shall be returned to proper storage locations at the end of each workday.
