French term or phrase: le sol du local est imperméable, incombustible
Really sorry to do this, but although I know roughly what's involved, I can't quite get my head round it!

Le sol du local est imperméable, incombustible et disposé de façon à constituer ou à être dans une cuvette de rétention telle que les égouttures ou en cas d’incident, les liquides contenus dans les récipients, les appareils de fabrication ou les canalisations, ne puissent s’écouler au dehors.

English translation:cannot leak out
Explanation:

The floor of the plant/shop is waterproofed/sealed, fireproofed and set up in a retaining basin so that leaks or, in case of incident, liquids contained in containers, manufacturing appliances, or piping cannot flow/leak out.
