Intent

To outline procedures covering gasoline and fuel oil delivery.

Scope

All University personnel working in delivery areas.

Hazard

Physical lay-out of delivery areas and the location of storage tanks may tend to slow down the dissipation of vapors which accumulate while tanks are being filled. This increases the need to take every precaution which will help eliminate any potential source of ignition.

Procedures

  • A "No Smoking" regulation shall be strictly enforced in delivery areas while vehicles are making deliveries.
  • Automotive vehicles or unauthorized persons shall not be allowed to enter a delivery area while a delivery is being made.
