Episode 3: Strive To Be Safe, Not Sorry
In the latest episode of “The Fueling Station” podcast, OPW’s “Pod-troleum Guys,” Ed Kammerer and Jonathan Stong, welcomed Scott Boorse, Director of Technical Programs & Industry Affairs for the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) to the show. Their discussion revolved around the importance of ensuring safety in all aspects of retail fueling, with an emphasis on PEI’s current efforts to create a series of Recommended Practices dedicated strictly to safety measures, the first of which highlights ways to optimize fall protection at fueling facilities. In the end, maximizing safety means leaving the facility as safe when you leave as it was when you arrived, with OPW’s industry-leading fuel-storage and -dispensing equipment lending a hand in that endeavor.
