Where on our construction site is the best place to store chemicals? And are there any special requirements?

A

Sections 2 and 3 of the Health and Safety at Work, etc Act 1974 place duties on employers to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable the health and safety of employees and others (eg people who may be not their employees, or members of the public).
