Belarusian gas stations designated for transit trucks disinfected twice per day

BORISOV, 9 April (BelTA) – All the refueling stations in Minsk Oblast are washed with disinfectants. Special precautions are in place at the refueling stations designated for rest and recreation of drivers of transit semi-trailer trucks, BelTA learned from Anatoly Korotky, director of the Minsk Oblast branch of the refueling stations chain operator Belorusneft.

According to the source, Belorusneft's Minsk Oblast branch operates 80 refueling stations, including five stations where transit trucks can stop for rest and recreation. All the refueling stations are supplied with the necessary means of protection and perform the necessary disinfection procedures. All the personnel have passed a refresher course in the Molodechno branch of the national sanitary and epidemiological service.

The sanitary and epidemiological service recommends wet cleaning of the premises, cleaning of the surfaces people touch using disinfectants. The personnel have to wear face masks and gloves. Strips to help maintain distance between people are available in the customer area. The cashier and the client are separated by protective glass.

For instance, at one of the five large refueling stations designated for transit trucks a worker wearing protective goggles, a protective robe and carrying an 11-liter bottle filled with an alcohol-based disinfectant has to spray the disinfectant onto the entrance lobby of the refueling station, the fuel-filling columns, and the fuel pistols every 12 hours.

The most important thing at present is to ensure the safety of the people that have to work in high traffic retail areas. Although the number of vehicles on motorways has decreased (noticeably less in urban areas), it seems to workers of the refueling stations that the number of trucks they have to service has even increased. All the parking lots are filled to capacity at night. This is why close attention is paid to safety measures at such facilities.
