- Visit each facility at least once every week during normal business hours.
- Be immediately available for telephone consultation with the Class C operator when a facility is in operation.
- Be geographically located such that the person can be on site within two hours of being contacted by the the public, the owner or operator of the facility, or the State Fire Marshal.
Depending on your situation, you might need to train more than one Class A/B operator.
What this means?
If you’re a certified Class A/B operator and you visit the UST site at least once a week and you’re within a two-hour drive of the site, then you’re good to go.
If you’re a certified Class A/B operator but you don’t visit the UST site at least weekly or can’t drive there within two hours, you’ll need to make sure someone else does. If you have a backup Class A/B operator you’re probably all set. If not, you should strongly consider training another person who will.
It might seem like a strange law but the idea is to make sure there’s someone nearby who can respond to potential problems and not be located far away from the site.
