filled with around 35000 litres of petrol around Britain's roads, and stop off at petrol stations and pump the highly flammable liquid into tanks on the forecourt I might want my pay-packet to reflect the elements of responsibility and danger involved.
pull drop tanks fresh off the boat out of hull docks, I had a durn sight more to cope with than these mollycoddled crybabies, and on a whole heck of a lot less money too! Flammables were the easy stuff. I used to dread the toxics, the corrosives and especially the oxidisers. Nasty stuffs included hydrofluoric acid-the only substance known that will eat through glass. Chlorinated biphenol (fatal by inhalation, absorption and ingestion). As for the carbon disulfide out of trafford park, well, lets just not go there. And all in tanks without any anti surge baffles either, unlike road barrels.
anything about tube drivers. I do know tanker driving though. Work at the big fuel distribution companies is difficult to get into, purely because the pay and conditions are so good compared to the rest of the road transport industry. The usual way into these firms is by 'dead mans shoes'.
