You should famaliarise yourself with the Hazardous Chemical Substances Act, COID act and Occupational Health And SafetyAct. I would strongly suggest that you contact Occupational health Experts who should visit your premises, do a Health Risk Assessemnt and provide you with 'best practises' legal compliance and required medical surveillance and standards. This is not a DIY project. It does require expert opinion. You can contact OCSA at 011 8038305. They are national and will assist and advise. Mention that I referred you via the site. Good luck!
