Network Plus Safety Alert

A supply chain partner of Highways England has recently shared this safety alert regarding the potential risks of alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

“A Gassco employee used alcohol-based hand sanitiser as recommended during the Corona pandemic. The person touched a metal surface before the liquid evaporated. Due to static electricity, the vapour from the hand sanitiser ignited with an almost invisible flame on both hands. The person quickly managed to get to a sink to extinguish the flames”.
