Water holding facilities

Hazard Knowledge

Personnel attending incidents may need to work near to water holding facilities including

  • Open vats
  • Tanks
  • Pits
  • Bunds
  • Rivers
  • Reservoirs

Working near water holding facilities presents similar hazards to working near water. Therefore, the guidance contained in National Operational Guidance: Water rescue and flooding may need to be applied.
