Drug Safe AKA Dangerous Drug Cabinet

by | Dec 4, 2012 | .

The Qld Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation 1996 makes it very clear the manner that Schedule 8 or Dangerous Drugs must be stored and how the safe or container is to be fixed to the floor or wall. I have seen many a non-complaint Dangerous Drug safe forced open over the years. Whilst some terminology in the act is a little confusing to the lay person it does make sense. Chemists have seen huge changes in the manner drugs are administered over the last 20 or so years. Newer “patch” technology means traditional sized safes  are now no longer suitable because the boxes are larger. I have seen a trickle of enquiries turn into a flood and hence we now stock over 8 different size containers for storing S8 drugs.
Another common issue that has cropped up is Pharmacies being located in shopping centres. It can be challenging to secure a drug safe adequately. Often the wall or floor, keeping in mind that the dispensary area is usually a raised chipboard platform. Make it hard to anchor the drug safe in a manner Health Inspectors will sign off on. Drug Cabinets tend to be locked mostly by keylocks. However we do supply them with digital or the less popular spin combination. All of the Dangerous Drug storage containers that we sell have adjustable shelving. We can even make a “custom sized drug safe” to fit a particular spot in the ever increasingly space poor pharmacy. We recently made one that was made to fit under the counter. It measured 700 x 700 x 500 mm H W D and had double doors to allow for easy access.
We can also design and install a S8 internal box or cabinet that helps to control these schedule 8 drug even further. The standard locking configuration is high security keylock. However we can also upgrade the lock to a multi-user digital lock or a fingerprint operated drug safe.
I invite you to call me in regard to any question relating to buying or installing a safe for the storage of S8 or Dangerous Drugs and the best way to safely secure or anchor them anywhere in Brisbane. Pictured below are a few pictures of the Drug safes we stock.

I would HIGHLY recommend KGB Security. We have used them twice (so far) and... BOTH times have been a pleasure. They are extremely helpful, very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our matters were dealt with promptly. They are super friendly, easy to talk to and easily talk through steps over the phone. Their expertise was greatly appreciated!read more

Called KGB security about my heavy timber pivot door, to install a door damper... to stop it from slamming. Kel asked me to send photos of the door mechanism. He called back shortly thereafter to advise me that we have a door damper already, so no need to waste money for one. He taught me how to adjust the damper - 'tramsom closer'. It worked! My door doesn't slam any more. It only took me a few minutes and a screwdriver. He saved me lots of money. They are the most ethical and professional locksmith. I'm very grateful.read more

I cannot speak highly enough about this company!I have an old fireproof... cabinet that I was concerned about and gave KGB a call for some professional advice.Not only did I get information on the issue at hand, but I even got the contact number for someone that worked at the now long deceased company who could give me more detailed information.I would recommend them for anything to do with safes, cabinets or anything to do with security!read more
