Trips to the gas station are a regular part of the workday for workers who use company vehicles to get from job-site to job-site or client to client. Unfortunately, each of those trips puts your employees at a high risk of picking up germs or viruses. With research studies indicating that 71% of gas pump handles have high levels of bacteria and germs, they can be one of the dirtiest things that you touch in a day. An on-site fuel pump can keep risk lower and help in a variety of other ways.
How Are Employees At Risk at a Gas Station?
The spread of viruses and illnesses have made many fleet owners more aware of the risks that their employees face over the course of the workday. Requiring employees to wear masks and wash their hands frequently is a good step forward, but what if they are visiting a gas station where viruses can survive for up to 3 days on a pump handle multiple times a day? Installing an on-site fuel pump prevents trips to the gas station which lowers risk.
What Are the Benefits of an On-Site Fuel Pump?
On-site fueling allows for increased convenience and safety. There is no need for your workers to travel to a gas station for critical fuels. Instead, you have complete control over the high-quality fuels going into the vehicle, the amount of fuel that is dispensed, and the on-site fuel pump. Whether you have 20 on-site vehicles or 200, decreasing the number of people coming into contact with a pump is critical to reducing the spread of illness. When you have an on-site fuel pump, you can have hand sanitizer or single-use gloves placed beside it and easily sterilize it between uses.
At Tevis Energy, we offer both non-metered and metered pumps, numerous nozzle and hose lengths, and 115-volt, 12-volt, and manual pumps. All of our on-site fuel pump systems come with a fuel filter to prevent particulate matter from getting into your company vehicles or equipment. Once you have your on-site fuel pump installed, we will continue to deliver quality fuels. We use an innovative additive, ECOPro, to prevent diesel fuel from gelling in the winter months and keep fuel lines clear.
