Stay safe on the forecourt

Petrol Retailers AssociationTHE Petrol Retailers Association has joined forces with the Safety Pass Alliance to offer a new online training programme for all forecourt operators and their employees.
The e-learning package is designed to give employees a greater understanding of the level of risk while working on a forecourt and how to ensure the safety of themselves and the public.
The training takes 2.5 hours for each employee to complete. Each module has a printable certificate on successful completion.
“Working with the SPA, the PRA’s technical officers have drawn on their many decades of experience and consulted with members of the technical committee to ensure that this new e-learning package captures everything that is necessary to enable employers to be confident that they have provided their staff with sufficient training to carry out their roles in a safe and competent manner,” said the PRA’s technical director Phil Monger.
“The SPA and PRA have worked within and beyond the guidelines for Petroleum Forecourt Operators Training issued by the Petroleum Retailers National Steering Group, and are confident that it fits exactly what is required in the complex field of petrol forecourt safety and retailing compliance.”
