9. It is strictly forbidden to train unqualified personnel and contractors without relevant qualifications to enter the oil and gas tank farm. Unauthorized motor vehicles and outsiders are not allowed to enter the tank farm.

This article mainly stipulates the requirements for the training of job operators and the management of contractors, outsiders and motor vehicles. Operators of oil and gas tank farms must be trained and qualified and have the ability to work. The contractor entering the tank farm to have the corresponding qualifications is a prerequisite for ensuring the safety of the operation. The random entry of foreign personnel and motor vehicles into the tank farm will bring many uncontrollable safety risks.

Typical accident case: 

On October 21, 1993, an oil tank explosion accident occurred at the Sinopec Jinling Petrochemical Refinery, resulting in 2 deaths. The main cause of the accident was that the operator violated the operating procedures, causing gasoline leakage and forming an explosive mixture in the air. Sparks exploded from the exhaust pipe of the walking tractor driven by the contractor, which caused fire and explosion.
