Implementing a pre-use inspection procedure for all users of your fuel tank can save the time, money and negative effects to your company’s reputation associated with a fuel spill. Whether filling the tank or dispensing fuel from it, a short visual inspection before you begin the operation ensures that it is safe to proceed and allows you to keep up with small maintenance issues before they become a major problem. Any issues reported from the user inspections should be thoroughly investigated and corrected in a timely manner.
