The construction EMP will consider and outline control associated with the delivery, storage and handling of hazardous materials and in particular oils and fuels taking into account the requirements of the Control of Pollution (Oil Storage) (England) Regulations and best practice guidelines (such as Pollution Prevention Guidelines 2).


9.2 111 Control Measures The following best practice will be implemented:


Oil and fuel storage tanks will be robust and provide adequate secondary containment and be located in designated areas taking into account security, the location of sensitive receptors and pathways such as drains and watercourses, and safe access and egress for plant and manual handling. Spill response materials will be provided nearby and be readily accessible, with local project personnel trained in spill response


Oils and chemicals will be clearly labelled and the site should retain an up-to-date COSHH inventory. Activities involving the handling of large quantities of hazardous materials, such as deliveries and refuelling, will be undertaken by designated and trained personnel


Oil and chemical storage areas will be inspected, at least weekly for signs of spillage, leaks and damage. Rainwater, materials and general debris will be stored in bunds and drip trays that compromise contingency storage shall be removed as part of the maintenance programme and in accordance with regulatory protocols


Use of portable bowsers with built-in bunds for any refuelling activities required in the active working area, with the return of bowsers to the main construction compounds overnight


Inspection of all construction plant for fuel leaks before being delivered to the working area


Facilities storing oils and fuels will be locked and made secure when not in use Small plant will be provided with drip trays or commercial „plant nappies‟.
