The petroleum industry handles potentially hazardous products and therefore a top priority is health, safety and sound work practices.
Working on petrol filling stations presents some special issues, not least the safety of the public. For this reason UKPIA and its members have helped develop a self-regulatory scheme to ensure that workers in the industry and particularly contractors working on forecourts, are trained to meet specified standards.
