UKPia / SPA
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.
Working at Height
Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Common cases include falls from ladders and through fragile roofs.
Work at height means work in any place, including at or below ground level (for example in underground workings), where a person could fall a distance liable to cause injury. All Staff at Best Roofers are trained and hold indate certificates for Working At Height.
