BENEFITS

Spills of hazardous substances can come from not only industrial equipment but also equipment found in homes, office buildings and non-industrial workplaces, such as heating oil tanks. And heating oil spills can be just as harmful to the environment as other kinds for spills—and just as costly to remediate. And because the warm weather seems to result in an increase in the number of spills from heating oil tanks, it’s a good time for all property managers and companies to conduct inspections of such tanks.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Use this checklist, which is based on one in a homeowner’s guide from Nova Scotia, to inspect the heating oil tank and system in your building or facility for any defects or conditions that could put it at risk of leaks. Make sure to address any issues you identify.
