This document provides an agreed industry briefing for use by those who manage or train road tanker drivers. It includes a thorough review of the phenoma of thermite sparking and outlines recommendations that have been agreed between the EI's Road Tanker and Service Station Panels and the UK HSE, which, if implemented, may help to reduce the risk of a thermite spark igniting vapour during road tanker deliveries.
