EARTHING

Flammable Liquid Relocatable dangerous goods stores must be earthed to discharge dangerous currents into the ground.
Using the equipment supplied please follow the below instructions:

1. Locate a practical position to install the earth rod, ≤200mm from the front right hand base plate of the Relocatable Dangerous Goods Store

2. Drill a 14mm hole through the hard surface at the position that the earth rod will be installed

3. Using the hammer, drive the earth rod into the drilled hole until only 400mm of the earth rod  is above surface

4. Connect the wire to the earth rod and the earthing point on the front right hand base plate of the Relocatable Dangerous Goods Store to complete the earthing system

To ensure you sustain compliance you will need to periodically review your control measures and carry out maintenance.
