At work we have diesel pumps to fill the vehicles. What sort of safety precautions (ie. extinguishers, lighting, fire suppressors) do we need?

    Same as for gas pumps.

    A diesel pump is no more dangerous than a pump that dispenses gasoline. Obviously, you don't want to be smoking a cigarette while you're filling your tank with diesel or gasoline, and you don't want to drop a lighted cigarette or a match into any fuel that you might accidently spill on the ground.

    bucket of sand or dry chemical fire extinguisher....diesel doesn't burn the way gasoline does.

    Strangely enough all you need is some detergent to clear up any spillages. Diesel is almost impossible to ignite in a filling situation. It's waaaay safer than petrol/gasoline.

    Honestly, you should just have literally zero safety precautions and hopes the whole place explodes if you survive the settlement claim will be far higher than your pay rate.

    throw a lit match into the gas tank
