The Petrol Tank Company is offering to undertake annual checks on golf clubs’ tanks where its engineers carry all the necessary equipment to perform this task.

“With the majority of heavy work tools, there comes a responsibility you undertake,” said a spokesman.

“When you own a car it needs an MOT. Motors need to be maintained and just like these, a responsibility is taken on with having your own fuel tank.

Forecourts have the job of maintaining their equipment to safe and acceptable standards, and to keep abreast of changes to the fuel storage regulations and guidelines. This is also the case for fuel storage at your place of work or premises.

“If you have a diesel tank, petrol tank, gas oil tank or even a heating oil tank, you have a duty of care to ensure the tanks are regularly checked and maintained.

The oil storage regulations detail various checks that should be undertaken on a regular basis.

“‘You could be fined or prosecuted if you do not follow the requirements in this guide. The Environment Agency can also serve an anti-pollution works notice to make you bring your oil store up to legal standards.’

“It’s a good idea to read the documentation on the gov.uk website to ensure you comply.

“Pipework should be checked as should bund integrity.

“As a responsible owner, additional safety checks should be undertaken on an annual basis.

“The inspection of tanks and equipment will vary according to the type of tank and may involve specialist equipment for some checks.

“The Petrol Tank Company can undertake annual checks on your tanks for you and its engineers carry all the necessary equipment to perform this task.

“On completion you will be issued with a full report of items checked and recommendations for areas that require addressing.

“This gives an easy to work from instruction that you can keep on record.

“This does not replace the regular checks that you should carry out yourselves but does show a responsible approach to fuel storage.”
