This is a list of the equipment we trialled in the process of controlling the hazards associated with tank dipping.
This is a flashing light that was chosen to specifically raise the attention of customers driving onto the forecourt while staff are measuring the level of fuel in the tanks. It complies to a number of Australian Standards and safety tests. It costs approximately $100 depending on the choice of flashing colours.
High visibility vests
This vest was chosen following pilot site feedback. It costs approximately $30. It complies to:
Spill kit wheelie bin
Most sites already have these, so we included it in the tank dipping procedure to raise the height of the eflare to make it more visible. They can cost anywhere between $300 - $1,000 for a 120L bin.
This was used because some of the wheelie bin colours are difficult to see, particularly at night. A 50m roll costs approx. $30.
LP Gas Leaks
Brass caps < $10
