Husky – Making it Safer On The Roads For Everyone!

A couple of years back when travelling south of the border I found myself really struggling at a gas station.  I pushed the button, lifted up the handle, put it in my car and pulled on the handle and NOTHING.  I tried it a couple of times thinking to myself that things really couldn’t be that different in the states.  Finally, a lovely voice came over the speaker “Ma’am, you need to pay for the gas first!”  So, I marched into the gas station still slightly confused but paid for my gas and then was able to pump with ease.

Over the past few years we have heard of stories of gas attendants being injured or killed during gas robberies.  Every time I think how terrible of a thing, and that it can easily be avoided.  I can’t imagine going to work, doing my job and my life being at risk because people just don’t want to pay for gas! 

I was approached by Husky a couple of weeks ago as they have implemented mandatory pre-pay at all their gas stations across Ontario and want to spread the word.  Obviously, I was keen to get onboard.  Whether you pay at the pump or in-store you will know that you are part of keeping people safe.

Not only do I think this is an awesome idea but the Canada Safety Council agrees! “Corporations and consumers both must do their part and contribute to the decline of injury and fatalities in Canada and we are proud to see companies realize this transition to a pre-payment system can make a big impact.”

I’m a Pay-at the Pump kind of gal!  Makes it super easy and I now know that this action is making a HUGE difference.  Don’t believe me? To date, there have been no deaths as the result of a gas and dash incident in B.C. since pre-pay has been implemented.

“No gas fill-up is worth a life,” says Mike, who works at a Husky station. “I want my customers to realize the small act of pre-paying for fuel not only keeps me safe, it can also keep them out of possible harm’s way.”

So this summer, join me at your local Husky and pre-pay before you get your gas, knowing that you are doing something that is super easy and keeping folks safe while they work!
