In the month of August 2019, Petroleum Newspapers will have her second workshop titled: 2019 ABUJA WORKSAFE WORKSHOP; COMBATING HEALTH AND RISK AT GAS PLANTS AND PETROL STATIONS

Petrol stations are busy places with lots of vehicle and pedestrian traffic. They also store and dispense large amounts of hazardous substances, especially flammable substances such as petrol, diesel and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). That’s why it’s very important to have good systems and processes in place for making sure people stay healthy and safe.

Examples of some of the health and safety risks found in and around a petrol station.

Under the Health and Safety Act, every business has a responsibility to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers and any others who could be put at risk by the work of the business, for example, customers, visitors, children and young people, or the general public.

You will gain knowledge on how to eliminate risk where you’re reasonably able to. Where you’re not reasonably able to, the Abuja worksafe workshop will provide you information.


Worker engagement and participation

All retail petrol stations must involve their workers in workplace health and safety workshop. When workers are engaged in work health and safety, then everyone benefits. Your business is a healthier and safer place for everyone, and performance and productivity increase. Abuja worksafe workshop sets out the key steps in the health and safety engagement process but, in short, you must attend to express your views and raise work health or safety concerns, and contribute to the decision-making process.

The Abuja Worksafe Workshop will address the following:

  • Risk and hazards
    • the adequacy of staff welfare facilities
    • monitoring worker health safety of customers and the public
    • providing information and training to workers
    • procedures for resolving work health or safety issues
  • determining work groups, and proposing changes which may affect the health and safety of the public.
