bc x berita yg perempuan mengandung kne sambar api

mase tu hubby die nga isi minyak..
so,i decided to share this email from mu mummy

a safety alert from SHELL

Safety  Alert! 
  Here's  some reasons why we don't allow cell phones in operating areas, propylene  oxide handling and storage area, propane, gas and diesel refueling areas.  

The   Shell Oil Company recently issued a warning after three incidents in which  mobile phones (cell phones) ignited fumes during fueling operations  

In  the first case, 
 the phone was placed on the car's trunk lid during fueling; it rang and the  ensuing fire destroyed the car and the gasoline pump..  

In the second, an  individual 
  suffered   severe burns to their face when fumes ignited as they answered a call while  refueling their car!

And in the third, 
an  individual suffered burns to the thigh and groin as fumes ignited when the  phone, which was in their pocket, rang while they were fueling their car.  

You should know  that:

Mobile Phones can ignite fuel or fumes

Mobile  phones that light up when switched on or when they ring release enough  energy to provide a spark for ignition

Mobile phones should not be  used in 
filling stations , or when fueling lawn mowers, boat,  Etc.

Mobile phones should not be used, or should be turned off,  around other materials that generate flammable or explosive fumes or dust,  (i.e., solvents, chemicals, gases, grain dust, etc.)

o sum it up, here are the: Four Rules  for Safe Refueling

1) Turn off engine

2) Don't smoke

3) Don't  us e your cell phone - leave it inside the vehicle or turn it off

4)  Don't re-enter your vehicle during fueling

Bob Renkes of Petroleum  Equipment Institute is working on a campaign to try and make people aware of  fires as a result of 
'static  electricity' at gas pumps. His company has  researched 
  150  cases of these fires.

His results  were very surprising:

1) Out of 150 cases, almost all of them were  women.

2) Almost all cases involved the person getting back in their  vehicle while the nozzle was still pumping gas.  When finished, they  went back to pull the nozzle out and the fire started, as a result of  static.

3) Most had on rubber-soled shoes.

4) Most men never get back  in their vehicle until completely finished..  This is why they are  seldom involved in these types of fires.

5) Don't ever use cell phones  when pumping gas

6) It is the vapors that come out of the gas th at cause  the fire, when connected with static charges.

7) There were 29 fires  where the vehicle was re-entered and the nozzle was touched during refueling  from a variety of makes and models.  Some resulted in extensive damage  to the vehicle, to the station, and to the customer.

8) Seventeen fires  occurred before, during or immediately after the gas cap was removed and  before fueling began.

Mr.  Renkes stresses to NEVER get back into your vehicle while filling it with  gas.

If you absolutely HAVE to get in your vehicle  while the gas is pumping, make sure you get out, close the door TOUCHING THE  METAL, before you ever pull the nozzle out.  This way the static from  your body will be discharged before you ever remove the nozzle.

As I  mentioned earlier, The Petroleum Equipment Institute, along with several  other companies now, are really trying to make the public aware of this  danger.  You can find out more information by going to   
<  > Once here, click in the center of the screen where it says 'Stop  Static'.

I  ask you to please send this in formation to ALL your family and friends,  especially those who have kids in the car with them while pumping gas.   If this were to happen to them, they may not be able to get the children out  in time. Thanks for passing this along.
