A gas filling station attendant, Kofi Larbi, who has seven years of experience in that field, has revealed that most owners of filling stations do not do due diligence in their operations.

According to him, most gas cylinders are not checked for leakages before being filled.

Managers of the stations, he added, also fail to fix smoke and leakage detectors; a situation he said endangers lives and property.

He told Chief Jerry Forson, host of the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM on Monday, October 9 that: “Our bosses do not take the work seriously, most of them do not heed our warnings whenever we draw their attention to some defects with the cylinders. This is worrying because we do the work and so they must listen to us, they shouldn’t be just concerned about the money.

“Most stations do not even have smoke detectors, leakage detectors and so if the attendant does not become vigilante, there will be disaster.”

His comments come in the wake of the Atomic Junction gas explosion that occurred on Saturday, October 7.

The explosion killed at least seven people and injured 132 others who are being treated at the 37 Military Hospital.
