Training - Both the Midi and the Maxi petrol storage tanks are easy to use and conform to all British safety requirements. However, care needs to be taken when dispensing and receiving fuel to keep spillages to a minimum. Staff training in the safe dispensing of petrol and the receiving of fuel deliveries plus use of the Record and Delivery books to keep proper records can be arranged if required.

Fire Station - Although all tanks from The Petrol Tank Company are fully fire proofed, petrol remains a highly flammable substance. There is a statutory duty of care to ensure fire fighting equipment is easily accessible. The Petrol Tank Company Mini Fire Station consists of two dry powder or foam extinguishers and fire bucket containing fire retardant material on a mobile unit.

Spill Kit - Areas where petrol is handled or stored should be provided with a means of controlling spills to prevent spreading to non-hazardous areas. The Petrol Tank Company provides a very effective solution consisting of a large, clearly labelled, 240 litre wheeled bin containing 8, 3 metre 'socks' filled with absorbent material plus 6 bags of loose absorbent material.
