Safety Tips When Refuelling Your Car

This morning, i went to petrol station to pump the petrol into my car. Normally i will pump myself eventho Amirul is with me. I'll bring him to the cashier to pay the fuel, put him back at his car seat and start re-fueling work. While waiting the re-fueling to finish, i usually play with him, to make him occupied with something, at least he do not get bored even for 10 minutes.

However today, i did not do as usually. I asked pump attendance to do it because not much people at the station and there is pump attendance available to help this mummy. And without realize i did not shut off the car engine. Ya Allah, why do i being so careless and my annoyance may danger to both of us. I just noticed that i'm not shutting off the engine when re-fueling is finished. Patut la sejuk jer kan.. rupenya air-cond is runnning.. I want to start the car, and.. argggggg i DID NOT shut off the engine. I may blown up or caught in fire.. Nasib baik nothing happen..

This is a avoidable and preventable incident that may occur if our negligence take place. Our part in accident prevention involves following a few simple rules whenever we close to a petrol pump or other source of fuel. The first two rules are also the law.
  • Don't smoke within three metres (10 feet) of a petrol pump.
  • Don't leave your vehicle engine running when refueling.
  • Don't allow children to play around pump islands - or to hold or activate the pump nozzle.
  • Use only approved containers to carry fuel.
  • Do not use handphone
  • Treat all fuels with respect. Store them in approved. containers, in clean, well-ventilated places.
  • Handle them with great care and use them only as motor fuel.
This article also give some info about safety guidelines when re-fuelling petrol car and here is HSE message given by SHELL Co. Hope this article give some awareness to out of us.
