SPA launch new e learning package for forecourt employees

Safety Pass Alliance have joined forces with the Petrol Retailers Association (PRA) to offer a comprehensive online training programme for all  forecourt operators and their employees.

The e-learning package, developed in association with SPA and PRA’s technical team which   gives employees a greater understanding of the level of  risk while working on a forecourt and how to ensure the safety of themselves and the public.

The training package comprises three modules:

Module 1: An induction for all new employees covering safe site operation, legal responsibilities, flammable products, hazard zones, forecourt ignition sources, site security, forecourt incidents, spills & leaks, fire and emergencies

Module 2: This covers daily operations it includes security, forecourt equipment, incident reporting, mis-fuelling, weather, and managing visitors and contractors

Module 3: Covering the safe unloading of tankers, this module include safe storage, preparing for a tanker, ullage, preparing documentation, unloading fuel, driver-assisted, actions by the driver, vapour recovery, emergencies and documentation

The training, which offers a consistent approach for all staff, even on multi-site estates, takes 2.5 hours for each employee to complete on a PC, laptop or tablet and can be easily monitored by managers. Each module has a printable certificate on successful completion

“Working with the SPA, the PRA’s technical officers have drawn on their many decades of experience and consulted with members of the Technical Committee to ensure that this new e-learning package captures everything that is necessary to enable employers to be confident that they have provided their staff with sufficient training to carry out their roles in a safe and competent manner,” says the PRA’s technical director Phil Monger.

“The SPA and PRA have worked within and beyond the guidelines for Petroleum Forecourt Operators Training issued by the Petrol Retailers National Steering Group, and are confident that it fits exactly what is required in the complex field of petrol forecourt safety and retailing compliance.”

The course will be open to both PRA and non PRA Members who can purchase the learning from SPA or directly through Paypal on the SPA e learning website.
