Danger! Oil Tank Removals Improperly Performed Can Cause House Wrecking Explosions !

Some oil tank removal companies do not follow the National Fire Protection Association( NFPA) and American Petroleum Institute (API) Technical Guidelines for Underground Oil Tank Removal putting NJ Homeowners in harms way.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Oct. 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Removal of a heating oil tank may sound simple enough. However, complacency with regard to safety regulation can cause  serious injury, death and damage to residential and commercial properties. Smoking on worksite during a tank removal is a absolute danger condition and has caused many fatalities in this industry. Another serious safety concern is using non explosion proof  electrical equipment inside a heating oil tank to remove sludge. Recently while supervising a oil tank removal for a client, a oil tank company was observed using a electric non explosion proof or NFPA approved shop vacuum. A leading cause of tank explosions during oil tank removal is improper tank inerting and using no approved tools when working in a petroleum rich atmosphere.  Using a shop vac is lazy mans way of cleaning sludge from a heating oil  tank and it puts bystanders and employees at risk in addition to not following OSHA Health and safety guidelines.
