The figure illustrates a pallet which reduces exposure to leakage of toxic or corrosive virgin and waste chemicals into the workplace and/or environment from drummed chemicals on pallets. This thereby reduces the possibility of accidental personal chemical contact and migration of chemicals into the environment. The drummed chemical pallet holder, as shown in the figure, is made of carbon steel and coated with a chemical-resistant coating. It will contain the full volume of 1-1/2 drums of chemical or a minimum 82.5 gallons. A pallet of drummed chemicals will be set onto the pallet holder and will be "banded" to the pallet holder. The spill contained pallet of drummed chemicals may then be transported and staged or stored until the need arises for chemical usage.
