OFNTSC hosted a Liquid Fuel Handling Code Update Workshop for Petroleum Mechanics and Petroleum Mechanic Helpers. The workshop was well attended and had participants from Shibogama Technical Services, Windigo First Nations Council, Pwi-Di-Goo-Zing, Anishinabek of Kabaspikotawangag Resource Council and Keewaywin, Pays Plat, Big Grassy, Stanjikoming, Pikangikum, Mishkeegogamang, Rainy River, North Caribou and Wapekeka First Nations. A total of 15 to 17 participants attended both days of the workshop. In addition to the liquid fuel handling code, the training provider reviewed the Oil Code Book (B-139) and Environment Canada presented on the new regulations for “Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products” and the implications these regulations will have on federal lands. A similar workshop is planned for January 2009 and the details will be posted on OFNTSC’s website when available.
