What is the purpose of this guide and who is it aimed at?
The aim of this guide is to inform commercial vehicle drivers and fleet operators of the importance of preventing and minimising diesel spillages in order to reduce their frequency and severity on the strategic road network (SRN).
This guide presents useful information about the root causes of diesel spillages, what we do to manage these and the impact and effects of them on our network.
It also provides specific guidance for drivers and operators about what can be done to prevent spills and what actions should be taken if they are unfortunate enough to be involved in a diesel spillage.
Who is it for?
This guide is for commercial vehicle drivers and fleet operators who need to establish or update their processes for preventing and dealing with diesel spills.
Operators and drivers of other vehicles may also find it useful as the principles of preventing and dealing with diesel spillages are transferable to all.
