    Gas-and-dash law aimed at worker safety - Chantal Eustace, Vancouver Sun, Canada
    As of Friday, all drivers across the province must first pay by cash, credit or debit before they fuel up to prevent thieves from gassing up, then fleeing.

    "As for a formal regulation, it's the first one of its kind in the country," said Roberta Ellis, WorkSafeBC's vice-president of policy, investigations and review.

    Along with the requirement for 24-hour advance payments at the gas pumps, several other changes come into effect on Friday.

    Employers big and small must eliminate or minimize hazards to lone workers and maximize physical barriers between the public and cashiers.
