Go To Full Code Chapter
Self-service motor fuel-dispensing facilities shall be designed, installed, operated and maintained in compliance with the requirements of FC 2304.2.1 through 2304.2.5.
2304.2.1 Duties of Certified Attendant
The certified attendant's primary function shall be to supervise, observe and monitor the dispensing of fuel. The certified attendant shall prevent the dispensing of fuel into portable containers unless the dispensing is in compliance with the requirements of FC2304.1.7. The certified attendant shall control sources of ignition, take immediate action upon an accidental spill or release, be ready to use a portable fire extinguisher, and activate the fixed fire extinguishing system. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit a certified attendant from engaging in other activities so long as such activities do not interfere with the certified attendant's ability to supervise, observe and monitor the dispensing of fuel and other requirements of this chapter.
2304.2.2 Self-Service Dispensers
Approved self-service devices, equipment and systems such as, but not limited to, card-operated and remote-preset types, are allowed at liquid motor fuel-dispensing facilities. The certified attendant shall set the dispensing devices in the "off" position when not in use if such dispensing device can be activated without the certified attendant's knowledge.
2304.2.3 Monitoring of Dispensing
A control booth shall be located on the premises of every self-service automotive liquid motor fuel-dispensing facility. The control booth shall be an interior or exterior enclosure to which the public has no access. The certified attendant shall be present within the control booth while dispensing operations are conducted. The control booth shall be designed and located so that the certified attendant stationed therein shall have a full, unobstructed clear view of dispensing operations, except that mirrors and/or an approved closed-circuit television installation may be provided to afford the certified attendant a clear view of dispensing operations when the view from the control booth is partially or temporarily obstructed. For purposes of this section, the "clear" view provided by a closed-circuit television installation shall mean that the image on the monitor shall be of such brightness and resolution as to allow ready identification of individuals and easy observation of activities at all times of day. Two properly labeled manual switches, one that activates the fire extinguishing system, and one that electrically disconnects the liquid motor fuel-dispensing pumps, shall be located adjacent to each other within the control booth. A console that controls the self-service liquid motor fuel dispensers shall be provided within the control booth and within 5 feet (1524 mm) of the manual switches.
2304.2.4 Communications
A two-way voice communication system shall be installed to provide contact between the control booth and each dispensing island.
2304.2.5 Signage
The signage required by FC2304.1.4 shall be posted in the dispensing area of a self-service motor fuel-dispensing facility, except that the emergency procedures sign required by FC2304.1.4.4 shall be posted in the control booth.
