If your workplace stores but does not dispense petrol
The Petroleum (Consolidation) Regulations 2014 does not apply at workplaces that do not dispense petrol; dispensing petrol means the manual or electrical pumping of petrol from a fixed storage tank into the fuel tank of a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, i.e. retail and non-retail petrol filling stations.
The regulations are not intended to bring in certification for workplaces that are not currently licensed. Therefore, workplaces such as golf courses, scrap metal/salvage yards, etc. would not routinely fall under the storage requirements of the regulations. At those premises where there maybe dispensing of petrol into containers, such activity is considered ancillary and not of the scale intended to be covered by Part 2 of the regulations.
Your workplace continues to be covered by:
- The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR)
- The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002. Approved Code of Practice and guidance
- Dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres ACOP L138 (Second edition)
- Controlling fire and explosion risks in the workplace
