As a forecourt operator, you must always be able to recognise a hazard and the controls used to reduce that risk.

Forecourt staff are required to oversee the dispensing of hundreds, if not thousands, of litres of highly inflammable and environmentally polluting fuels that are made readily available to the public daily. To protect customers and operators from risks, many safety precautions have been implemented on the forecourt. Moreover, more and more petrol station now have convenience stores attached, offering food and drinks and other associated sales. It can be challenging to supervise such busy and distracting environments, but it is essential that safety is always ensured.

The knowledge required to ensure this safety is very diverse - forecourt operators need to be aware of good health and safety practices, properties of fuels, how to use a fire extinguisher, and the list goes on. We developed the ‘Safety First on the Forecourt’ Online Training Course in partnership with Suresite to give operators a tool that they can use to acquire all the competencies needed for the supervision of the forecourt. The course will help you to be aware of the risks that you, contractors and members of the public can face, and will help build your confidence and understanding of the correct emergency procedures required to ensure a safe environment.

The Safety On The Forecourt Online Training Course was designed to help workers that are in charge of supervising the forecourt to understand their responsibilities towards safety. It is a fully online interactive course and assessment, accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits through our modern LMS. A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the online course.

The Safety On The Forecourt Online Training is a 2-hour course with a series of modules which can be completed over a period of time. You can purchase the course here.
