Fuel pump handles measure the highest levels of contamination
A study of fuel pump handles in the USA has found some 71 per cent had high levels of contamination, enough to spread illness.
It was the highest percentage when tested against ATM buttons, escalator rails, public restroom handles and other surfaces*.
BP UK have introduced Wet Wipe Stations manufactured in BP Green with bespoke signage to selected BP managed forecourts in the UK.
The free standing station dispenses anti-bacterial wipes to remove fuel residue from customers hands and has an integrated bin for the used wipe. The sanitising wipes not only clean pump handles and hard surfaces, but also clean and sanitise customers’ hands.
Placed at the shop entrance, it encourages food and beverage purchases and contributes to the overall fuelling and dining experience at very little cost. Manufactured in Ireland, the Wet Wipe Stations are used by Esso, Spar, Supervalu, Certas Energy UK and many more.
