Hazardous Chemicals

Signs - Following an inspection by our local fire service, we have been told that we should display Hazchem signs on the gate of our garden centres because we stock LPG. Contrary to this I have told by our gas supplier that because the quantities are small we are not Hazchem registered and do not have to display Hazchem signs. We do of course have the mandatory no smoking etc signs on the gas cages. Can you clarify?

Flashpoint - I occasionally see Highly Flammables being those with a flashpoint under 21°C rather than under 32°C. There doesn’t appear any mention within DSEAR or CHIP Reg’s and wondered if you could shed any light on it. It’s not from a Euro directive at all is it to re-classify?
