To be compliant to transport any type of bulk “dangerous goods” in Western Australia you must comply with certain periodic maintenance inspections & pre-start checks, to ensure that the goods are being transported in a safe manner. So, having your Dangerous Goods licenced road tanker scheduled in for periodic maintenance and inspections not only makes sense, but it’s also mandatory by the regulations stated in the Australian Standards and the Dangerous Goods code.
As a Dangerous Goods tanker owner, you must have a periodic, scheduled & documented maintenance program in place. This will not only prolong the lifespan of your investment but also help reduce safety risks by being pro-active and show the authorities your level of compliance. To ensure your equipment meets the dangerous goods safety regulations, you must take your road tanker for maintenance inspections on a regular basis as stated in the Australian Standards.
These inspections may cover:
- Hydrostatic Pressure testing (5 Yearly “P” Test)
- 2.5 Yearly hatch & vent testing (2.5 Yearly “M” Test)
- Hose assembly inspections & testing (Continuity & Hydrostatic)
- SLP Inspections (6 Monthly for Fuel Tankers)
- Mechanical services & inspections
