Abandoned tanks

A PBCU must notify WorkSafe if a tank under its control or management has been abandoned.

The tank is taken to be abandoned if:

  • the tank has not been used to store flammable gases or flammable liquids for 2 years; or
  • the PCBU does not intend to use the tank to store flammable gases or liquids again

If the tank has been decommissioned, supporting evidence should be included. This might include a copy of the letter or certification from a competent person/contractor confirming the method of decommissioning.

To make notification, Submit the form to WorkSafe Tasmnaia
