ABSTRACT

The dual purposes of this study were to explore (1) the safety measures provided by the management of oil marketing companies and/or fuel stations managers and (2) relationship between these safety measures and safety practices of the fuel service station attendants. The study used a cross-sectional survey design in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis. A total of 114 pump attendants from Allied Oil, Goil, Shell and Total Petroleum companies participated in the study. A researcher generated questionnaire (AFSSAQ) with an alpha of .82 was used for data collection.

In general, there was a high provision of safety measures among the companies. The companies were significantly different in their safety policy enforcement F (3, 110) = 6.78, p < .05. And that Shell (M = 14.83, SD = 4.50) has a higher safety policy enforcement practices than Goil (M = 10.50, SD = 4.17). The companies also showed significant difference in the provision of personal protective equipment F (3, 110) = 4.71, p < .05. Thus, Total Petroleum (M = 12.97, SD = 3.49) provided better personal protective equipment than Goil (M = 8.97, SD = 4.22). There was a low to moderate positive correlation between safety practices of the attendants and safety measures of the oil companies.

However, attendants may be exposing themselves to harmful fumes due to the lack of appropriate personal protective equipment. Provision of appropriate safety measures could improve the safety practices of pump attendants in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
