The more you inspect your UST system, the more you can catch a small problem before it becomes a big one. But the more you inspect, the more you expose workers to possible job site hazards. Petroleum fumes, waste liquid and careless drivers all increase the risk of exposure to a dangerous work environment.
And with the increased amount of monthly, annual and three year inspections, the lids to your UST system are being opened more than ever.
Check out this handy video by the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) about how to properly barricade the area of the UST you are inspecting.
Whether you are a new Class C operator, a competent Class A/B operator or a seasoned technician, be careful out there!
