Vehicle movement could lead to accidental collision with structures, other vehicles and people resulting in severe injuries and death.
India imports 82% of its oil needs.
Tips to avoid accident:
- Devise a safe system e.g. a one-way system for entering and exiting the petrol station.
- Provide mechanical protection to fuel tanks and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) storage areas.
- Provide sufficient designated parking areas away from the pumps.
- Display clear information signs setting out the traffic control arrangements.
