If you have a lot of machinery on your commercial property and some of the machinery runs off diesel fuel, it may be bothersome to have to get the fuel to your property. Managing fuel and having fuel on the property can also be a liability which can be stressful. Here are a few different things you'll want to consider doing so you don't have to worry about getting all of the fuel to your property and taking care of it as needed.
Have a company like Small & Sons Oil Dist Co come to your business location to deliver the fuel, instead of having to go out and fill tanks. Leaving several tanks somewhere on the property and having to fill the machines with small cans can be an annoyance. Instead, have a large tank installed on the property and have all the fuel you need delivered in bulk, so you can use the supply in the tank as needed and you can easily read when the tank is low. The delivery service makes it so you don't have to run around or be liable for transporting fuel.
Have the fuel tank that you have installed or the storage units inspected annually to make sure they aren't at the risk of a leak or combustion. This may be required by your state's laws, and you want to know that the tanks are safe. You should have any lines that run to the machines inspected annually as well.
Fuel Fire Training
Have all of your staff members trained on how to put out a fuel fire if it occurred and how to react if there was a leak in one of the gas lines or the gas tank. Diesel fuel is highly flammable so you want to know that everyone can handle what's going on if there is an emergency. Your commercial insurance provider may give you a discount when you have your staff go through this type of training.
There are a lot of different concerns that you may have when it comes to getting more fuel to your property, so all of your machinery can run off the diesel fuel it requires. By going out of your way to set up these three different things, it's going to make managing your commercial property and the fuel needs that you have a lot easier. It will also help to make things more safe.
