  4. Ensure all personnel are kept at least 6 m away from the delivery operation (exclusion zone)
  5. Driver must stay in attendance at the emergency stop button at all times during delivery
  6. Check and secure any valves, caps, covers and padlocks
  7. Leave the delivery point in a clean condition
