The UK threat level is currently SEVERE and members are reminded to take some simple precautions, as filling stations attract security risks:
Brief staff on the increased threat level and ask them to remain vigilant. If you or your staff suspect immediate danger, call 999.
Encourage staff to escalate suspicious activity on or near to your site immediately. Make sure they have contact information to enable them to reach the appropriate people, day or night.
Make sure that staff know what action to take in the event of an incident, to ensure their own safety and the safety of members of the public.
Verify the identity of all contractors and suppliers visiting your site before allowing access to non-public and hazardous areas.
