Fuel Tankers and hoses should be fully tested every 6 months in line with industry best practice.

Why is Fuel Tanker Maintenance Part of the Safe Load Program (SLP)?

The SLP and the associated Pass-2-Load Scheme apply to all tankers that load fuel products and gantries at facilities operated by the major oil companies and ensures all fuel hoses and equipment are fully tested and maintained every six months in line with industry best practice. Ensuring fuel hoses are regularly checked and maintained ensures the safest possible entry, loading and exit at fuel loading facilities.

A Pass-2-Load inspection is required for all road tankers that deliver bulk petroleum including prime movers, rigid tankers, tanker trailers, road trail dollies and trailers which are used to transport bulk petroleum in demountable tanks. Companies without a Safe Load pass cannot gain access to participating terminals.
