The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Legend has it that while picking up hazardous waste materials at a client site, the founders of SAFETY STORAGE, Inc. had a brilliant flash of insight. They reasoned that the customer could save money, reduce worker exposure and hazardous material handling risks, and enjoy greater overall productivity if…instead of the typical twice-weekly schedule for hazardous waste removal, the customer could safely store his waste on-site until a sufficient volume of waste could be assembled.

It was 1982, and with this simple, yet brilliant innovation based on developing a solution to what the founders perceived to be a customer need, SAFETY STORAGE set up shop and started the prefabricated hazardous material storage building market.

Today business at SAFETY STORAGE is still done with the same level of dedication and focus on the customer's hazmat storage needs.

Each hazardous material storage building begins with an understanding of your operation, the chemicals, flammables, toxic and hazardous materials in use and related worker, property and environmental risks. Since SAFETY STORAGE is committed to full-value, turnkey solutions, we apply our knowledge and experience to designing and developing extra-value fire protection, safe storage and workspace solutions that often extend far beyond the immediate need to meet hazmat code compliance.

SAFETY STORAGE offers a collaborative building design forum that brings together procurement managers, plant engineers, safety engineers, laboratory managers, CFOs and CEOs and others who each have a stake in assuring the safety, productivity and economic well-being of your company.

SAFETY STORAGE, the pioneer in hazardous material storage buildings, was instrumental in developing the fire and safety codes that are still in use today.

Thousands of SAFETY STORAGE units are in service throughout all 50 states, in the military, industry and government and in countries worldwide.

SAFETY STORAGE Inc.'s knowledgeable sales and engineering staff are the best in the industry and strive to serve your needs.
