A fire can be a back breaker.
The damages and losses can occur quickly.
Even if you’re fully insured, a fire is something you definitely don’t want to deal with.
As a business owner, you want to ensure you’re doing everything you can to protect your investments and employees.
Three ways you can protect your business from a fire are:
Identify Fire Hazards
In order to start, a fire needs three things:
• A source of ignition
• Fuel to burn
• Oxygen to feed the flames
Something is considered a fire hazard when all of the above are located close to one another. By simply moving the items, you can eliminate a fire hazard.
Identify Employees Who Are at Risk
You should identify particular groups of employees that are most at risk should a fire occur. They are:
• Employees working near fire dangers
• Employees working alone
• Elderly employees
• Disabled employees
Once identified, you can come up with a special evacuation plan.
Conduct a Full Fire Risk Assessment
You can only do so much. Sometimes, the best idea is to let a professional safety company conduct a full fire risk assessment. By doing this, you’re leaving nothing up to chance—ensuring that your business and employees are fully protected.
In order to reduce the risks of a fire, your best bet is to contact a professional safety service. Putting your business in the hands of trusted professionals is never a bad decision. When you’re ready, please contact Advanced Safety Consulting. We’re always happy to help.
