Many fuel pumps have automatic shut-off technology to prevent spills during refueling. But relying on such technology is a bad idea. The technology could fail or workers may not use it properly—thus causing a spill and possibly exposing your company to liability.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
To prevent refueling spills and the risk of liability associated with them, make sure your company has a policy that reminds workers to be diligent while filling their tanks. Adapt this model policy for your company’s operations and procedures. And make sure that you enforce that policy by disciplining workers who violate it.
