Transfer of Oil or Fuel


To prevent spills into the environment, transfers of fuel or oil between vehicles, tanks, transformers, etc. must be done with equipment or a structure in place to provide spill containment.   Spill containment may be temporary, but it must be fabricated in a manner that prevents any spillage from reaching the environment. 

During the transfer process, an attendant who can terminate the transfer in the event of a spill must be present. Spill control equipment and clean up materials must be on-hand prior to commencement of the transfer process.

In the event that a spill reaches soil or water, contact EH&S’s Chemical and Radioactive Waste Disposal group immediately at (352) 392-8400 during normal operating hours; after hours, contact the University Police Department at (352) 392-1111.

Spill waste (including liquid and solid absorbent waste) must be collected and disposed of through EH&S.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
