If in doubt Stop and Shout! Take the time to plan where fuel is stored. Have the right equipment and procedures in place to deal with any spills as soon as they happen.
  • Have a spill response plan and kit on site.
  • Choose a refuelling area at least 20 metres from any waterways, gutters and drains, then tell people only to refuel in that area. Place the fuel container(s) (cans or bowser) inside a bund which is big enough to hold 110% of the fuel stored on site.
  • Use drip trays or an absorbent mat to catch any spilled fuel.
  • Check the bund weekly, and before and after any rain. If thebund fills with rain water, empty it. If any contamination is present it must be removed by a waste disposal contractor.
