It's important to be aware of the gas
station environment hazards. We visit gasO
stations every time we need to refuel
our vehicles, but often don't stop to
think about the potential hazards
involved. To stay safe, it's a good idea to educate yourself and your family about
the gas station environment hazards that
might impact you. Environmental Risks of Gas Stations Gasoline is highly explosive, and can be
very dangerous if proper safety
precautions are not followed. The most
prevalent risks associated with gas station
environment hazards are fires and explosions. You can view examples of
real-life gas station fires, in the Electrostatic Journal. Gas station fires most frequently result from sparks that
lead to fuel explosions and static electricity that ignites fuel vapors. Safety Tips For Preventing Fires at
Gas Stations No Cell Phones Stories about the dangers of cell phones
and gas stations have been circulating for
years. While some assert that the danger
of using cell phones at gas stations is
nothing more than an urban legend,
there is evidence that cell phone usage near gas pumps does pose explosion
risks. Why put yourself or anyone else at
risk just to take or make a phone call
while pumping gas? Neither cell phones or full-function pagers
are designed to be used in any type of
ignitable environment. Certainly any area
where fuel is being pumped is one where
risk of ignition is high. There are
situations in which cell phone usage can create sparks capable of igniting a fire or
causing an explosion in such an
environment. Check the owner's manual that came
with your cell phone, and you will likely
see a warning against using the device
while refueling a vehicle or in any other
situation where you are exposed to
gasoline or fumes. No Smoking Whether you are refueling your vehicle
or just sitting inside, smoking or lighting
cigarettes poses a serious safety risk. A
single spark from a cigarette, match or
lighter can cause a serious explosion at a
gas station. It is not safe to smoke or use matches or lighters while on the
grounds of a gas station, even if you
aren't actually pumping gas. Don't Leave Engine Running It is very important to turn off your car's
engine while pumping gas. Gasoline vapor
that comes into contact with electrical
wires while an engine is one can trigger
an explosion. Stay Put You should not get in and out of your
automobile while you are pumping gas.
Doing so poses a risk of static electricity,
which can ignite gasoline vapors. If you
absolutely have to enter your vehicle
during refueling, it is a good idea to touch the metal on your car (far away
from the gas tank) before you take the
nozzle out. Be Alert Even though pumping gas is an everyday
occurrence for many people, don't lose
sight of the fact that you are responsible
for transferring a hazardous substance from one point to another. Don't put
yourself or other patrons at needless risk
by not paying attention to what you are
doing. Watch For Overflow Don't let your gas tank overflow.
Overflowing fuel that gets on you and/or
on the ground poses a safety risk.
Additionally, gasoline is a skin irritant, and
can cause reactions ranging from very
mild irritation to serious burns. It is a good idea to get in the habit of waiting a
few seconds after you stop pumping gas
before removing the nozzle to help
prevent drips. Adults Only Children should never be allowed to
pump gasoline. Anyone who is too young
to legally drive a car is too young to
pump gasoline. How to Fill a Gas Can Before you start filling a gas can, put it
on the ground. Do not attempt to fill it
when it is sitting on or is inside your
vehicle. There is a greater risk of spilling if
the gas can is not on the ground.
Additionally, there is a risk of fire resulting from static charges if the gas can is in or
on a vehicle while being filled. When you start pumping fuel into the
container, make sure that you keep the
nozzle in direct contact with the
container. Don't fill the container to the
very top. You should leave 5 percent to
10 percent of the capacity free, to avoid overflowing fuel and to allow room for
the fuel to expand. Approved Containers Only Do not ever pump gasoline into a
container that is not approved for the
specific purposes of storing and
transporting gasoline. What if There is a Fire? If a fire starts while you are refueling, get
out of the area the moment you notice
flames. Leave the nozzle in the vehicle
and don't try to stop the flow of
gasoline. Warn others in the vicinity and
get help. Food For Thought Even though gas station environment
hazards do pose some risks, observing all posted warnings and exercising common sense regarding safety precautions can
help you stay safe. Gas stations can even
provide a safe refuge in the event you
find yourself in the unfortunate situation
of being followed or even chased. Many
gas stations are open 24/7, and provide a well-lit and populated environment
where you can go to get yourself out of
a potentially dangerous situation!!!!!
