SAFETY AND FARM TANKS

McFall Fuel has received notification that the Fuel Distributors Industry Safety Committee and information from WorkSafe that they are working towards an end of life for the Tripod Overhead Tanks. There have been notices and advice from Worksafe and its predecessors regarding the phasing out of non-compliant and unsafe tanks since 1996.

McFall Fuel is working with customers to achieve the 1 December 2017 implementation of the Health and Safety at Work Regulations (Hazardous Substances). This requires all of us in control of, or visiting, a site to assess and remove risk from the workplace and Tripod Overhead Tanks are part of this. McFall Fuel are keen to work with customers to see these safety standards achieved over the coming months so that together we meet the deadline of 1 May 2019 when refuelling any tripod overhead tank is likely to discontinue.

McFall Fuel offer a comprehensive range of well constructed and compliant tanks for customers to choose from to best suit their industry needs. The lease to own farm tanks are proving to be very popular with farmers because they see the long term benefits of getting their storage right.
