Reclassification of Diesel Fuel

A hot potato for those of us working with Diesel in 2016 was the reclassification of Diesel fuel which brought the fuel within the scope of DSEAR (Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations). There has been a significant amount of confusion about what the changes actually mean.

FUEL and oil spills or leaks are a serious business, both for the environment and those responsible for their source.
According to Environment Agency figures, there are around 3,000 reported incidents involving oil and fuel spills each year with major occurrences costing the owners of faulty or leaking installations an average of £30,000 each, in fines and clean-up costs.

It is such a simple concept that cost effectively reduces the impact of pipework leakage or leakage from damage to fuel dispensing pumps from over pressurisation. Sadly, and inexplicably it is not installed anywhere near as widely as it should be, leaving companies at serious risk of becoming major polluters.

Fuel Stock Reconciliation

Stock taking is recognised by accountants and stores managers as a safe means of keeping track of stock, it is inconceivable to imagine a modern store not accurately accounting for stock. Stock control is of such importance that businesses even keep strict control over stationary stock, so why do some businesses have such lax control over fuel wet stock?
