OIL LEAK – Immediate Actions
Identify the source of the leak and try to stem the flow if possible and if it is safe to do so. Depending on where the leak has occurred, this could be done by switching off the valve at the oil tank, or by arranging for the remaining contents of the oil tank to be temporarily removed.
- If spilled fuel is on the ground, try to absorb this wherever possible to prevent the spread of spilled fuel to nearby buildings or neighbouring property etc.
