Staff should be trained on how to deal with minor fuel spillages. Electricity Accidents are mainly due to misuse of, or badly maintained, equipment and there is an increased risk of electric shock when using equipment externally in a wet environment e.g. commercial vacuums and car washes. All electrical equipment used out of doors should be suitably insulated and should be supplied through a circuit protected by a 30 mA Residual Current Device. All electrical switchgear controlling machinery should be clearly labelled and readily accessible at all times. Ensure that the electrical installation used for mechanical car washes is suitable for a wet environment and has adequate protection from mechanical damage, considering the complexity of the moving parts. Fit a readily accessible emergency stop button to mechanical car washes. Fire Risks Obstructed exits e.g. by stock and/or accumulations of packaging can prevent escape and provide fuel for fires. Keep all escape routes and fire exits clear and make regular checks to ensure that this is the case. Clear rubbish regularly (remember sand used for cleaning or containing petrol spills will be flammable and should be disposed of safely, by a hazardous waste disposal company if necessary). Violence to Staff Robbery of goods or cash may place staff at risk of violence. Consider the use of closed circuit television, panic alarms and other security measures e.g. the use of pay windows at night. Compressed Air Systems The main risks arise from abuse of this equipment and from over inflation of vehicle tyres. Make sure that the air system is located within sight of the shop attendant to ensure constant supervision. Display clear information on the use of the air system e.g. the driver should check the correct tyre pressures. Train staff in the safe use of the equipment. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
