    No wonder, I work near this shed, and have used this shed few times, they have very poor disciplined staff. There have been many complaints on them.

    the first picture elaborates the whole story....An employee of the fuel station using a mobile phone when it is a high risk factor.. What does he care does he even know the kind of threat he is causing?..These are small precautions to be taken..educate them!!!!!!!!!

    Sadly MOST people do not realize the risks. IN USA u cannot have the engine running while u fill up the tank. And a warning is posted right by the dispenser of fuel. A lil spark can trigger a Big blast.. They would not let you use even a cell phone while you fill up. Our country need to bring in new laws and delete old and obsolete laws.. thereby saving lives and property.....

    You should educate the Petrol Shed worker's, in the Middles East they will not pump until the engine is switched Off. Same should be applied to Sri Lanka to avoid such occurrence in the future.

    Not only they don't do those things but also you will be fined if you get caught. The problem in SL is everybody is trying to discipline other but nobody practice.

    Health & safety is not a priority in Sri Lanka. Most people laugh at it.
