Code Of Practice For Motorsport Fuel

If you organise, manage or take part in motorsport events, you need to know how to manage the risks of motorsport fuel to protect the health and safety of competitors, racing car support personnel, event officials, marshals and spectators who handle motorsport fuel, or may be exposed to its vapours or fumes.

What’s the risk?

Motorsport fuel is a fire and explosion hazard if it isn’t stored or handled correctly. It also gives off vapours, which can enter the lungs and cause damage.

Prolonged or repeated exposure to motorsport fuel vapours on the skin or eyes can also lead to irritation or dermatitis.

The risk of exposure to motorsport fuel vapours can’t be fully eliminated. Therefore you need to consider what you can do to minimise the risk so far as is reasonably practicable.
