The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) will soon embark on sensitisation programme to filling stations on the importance of face masks and other precautionary measures against coronavirus.
DPR Osogbo field office Operations Controller, Mr Olusegun Daboh, who made the announcement on Friday in Osogbo, urged petroleum marketers in the state to always take precautionary measures against coronavirus while dealing with motorists at filling stations.
Daboh said as petrol attendants would be dealing with different kinds of motorists, there was a need for marketers to ensure that social distance was maintained.
According to him, the use of face masks should also be made compulsory for all the petrol attendants, to help in minimising the spread of the virus in the state.
He equally emphasised on the need to make hand sanitizers available for petrol attendants at the filling stations.
The operations controller said that since the attendants would be touching money frequently, there was the need for them to continually sanitise their hands against the virus.
Daboh while pledging that the agency would continue to support the marketers in the state on the fight against the virus at the filling stations, warned against under-dispensing of product, vowing that any marketer caught would be dealt with according to the law.
