design should be the same.
4-3.6.1 Battery rooms are no longer authorized for an OMS; for exceptions, see
information at Section 4-5.9.
4-3.7.1 This space is provided for storage of petroleum-based lubricants, paints,
solvents, etc. for use in the OMS. Due to the volatile nature of the contents, it will have
exterior access only, and CMU wall to structure or a concrete ceiling.
4-3.7.2 The room should have a depressed well under a metal grate floor for
collection of any spills: no drain. The well should be sloped to allow convenient suction
of spills at a low point. The well should be capable of containing 150% of the stored
materials; verify likely amount of stored materials with Tenants.
4-3.7.3 Some steel shelving is typically provided, with some floor area left open for
4-.3.7.4 \ OSHA requires emergency eyewash and showers where an employee s
eyes or body could be exposed to injurious corrosive materials. For that reason, this
space is typically located with ready access to an emergency eyewash and shower unit
in the maintenance bay. Where ready access to an emergency eyewash and shower is
not available, a unit should be installed. The requirement can be waived, where the
Building Owner thoroughly documents that no injurious corrosive materials will be stored
in this space./2/
