These initiatives are aligned with government mandate and directives to ensure the safety well-being of the community.Further, all LPG cylinders are thoroughly disinfected before the filling process, and subsequently all physical touchpoints on the cylinders are santitised prior to despatch.

In addition, distributors handling the delivery of LPG cylinders are mandated to wear face masks and gloves and keep the number of staff in trucks to a maximum of two.Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group CEO, ENOC Group, said: “The safety of our customers as well as our assets, subsidiaries, and partners is of utmost importance, and as such, we have implemented a series of preventive measures to protect them. Our dual aim is to support the UAE health authorities in the fight against this pandemic and adhere to the highest health, safety and environment standards.”In addition, Emirates Gas has encouraged distributers to liaise with customers to leave cylinders at a designated place for collection to avoid direct human contact.
