How do gas stations deal with severe cold in winter?

oil stations in winter

In cold weather, the operating environment and natural environment of gas stations face the test of low temperatures. How do gas stations deal with low-temperature weather? The following article will reveal to you the risks and countermeasures faced by gas stations in winter.

01. The refueling nozzle does not produce oil in winter

The weather in the north is unpredictable, and the temperature in winter is unpredictable. If the station cannot grasp the weather changes well and change the diesel number in time, it may cause no oil production when the temperature drops suddenly.

Main control measures:

1. Pay attention to the weather and change the diesel number in time;

2. Put on “cotton clothes” on the tanker in time to ensure the temperature of the tanker;

3. When there is no vehicle, the diesel should be tested from time to time to ensure that the diesel in the filling pipe is always in motion.

02. Be careful if the awning falls and gets injured due to falling ice

The weather is hot and cold, causing the snow above the canopy to melt, and ice slips are formed when it gets cold, resulting in ice slips hanging above the canopy, which can easily damage incoming vehicles to a certain extent and cause unnecessary disputes.

Main control measures:

1. Clean the snow above the canopy in time;

2. Safety officers should inspect the site from time to time and deal with ice skates promptly if found;

3. Make safety reminders and place safety signs in stations where there are icy rinks to remind customers to take a detour to enter the station.

03. Heavy snow and dense fog are prone to accidents

Heavy snow and fog can easily cause traffic accidents due to low visibility, which can easily lead to injuries to employees at the refueling site, damage to the tanker and guardrails, and scratches and bumps to vehicles.

Main control measures:

1. Strengthen safety education for employees;

2. Provide vehicle guidance promptly;

3. Clean up the snow around the refueling site promptly to prevent vehicle slippage and accidents.

04. Too much snow caused the canopy to collapse.

There are more snowy days in the north, and the snow lasts for a long time. When the snow reaches the load-bearing capacity of the canopy, it can easily lead to serious accidents in which the canopy collapses and injures people and vehicles on site.

Main control measures:

1. Find professionals to clean up the snow in the hood in time;

2. Safety officers should frequently inspect the site and eliminate potential safety hazards by watching, listening, checking, etc.;

3. Strengthen duty supervision, especially at night, the personnel on duty should visit the site regularly;

4. When an unsafe hazard is discovered, stop paying for fuel, cut off the power supply, direct personnel to evacuate the scene, and report the situation to superiors promptly.

05. Employees suffering from frostbite due to low temperatures gas stations in winter

In low-temperature weather, refueling personnel must often hold a refueling nozzle to refuel. In addition, the dispersion of gasoline causes the refueling nozzle to be cold. In this case, if the refueling staff fails to do a good job of personal protection, it is easy for the refueling staff to suffer frostbite on their hands and feet.

Main control measures:

1. Provide employees with cotton-padded clothes, cotton shoes, and other anti-freeze materials promptly;

2. Ensure that employees can drink hot drinks in time;

3. Do a good job of keeping warm. Before central heating is available, use air conditioning and other equipment to ensure indoor temperature.
