Following safety protocols is always important, but it is crucial when it comes to petrol forecourts.


Fire represents a huge hazard on the forecourt, and that is why it is essential that employees working on forecourt are trained on safety procedures, particularly on how to prevent and deal with fires. Fires on the forecourt can be potentially disastrous, and employee training is the best way to ensure that your forecourt remains a safe place for your staff and your customers.

We created the Fire Safety on the Forecourt eLearning Module to give forecourt staff all the essential information regarding fire: ignition points, different types of fires, fire prevention and fire extinguishers. This course is a useful guide that will enable your staff to act appropriately and safely in the prevention of fires and in the event of a fire at a forecourt.

The course was designed for any employee working on the forecourt and looking for training in fire safety. It is a fully online interactive course and assessment, accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits.  A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
