We can all agree that fire safety in the workplace has certainly come a long way. Our offices and manufacturing facilities are much safer thanks to both increased fire safety awareness and the latest, state of the art fire safety equipment, fire doors and fire suppression systems. But still, Murphy’s Law does win sometimes and we have to implement those fire safety measures to save lives and valuable property.
And, while we can’t really predict when or how a fire will happen, there are some steps that we can take to prevent it and to keep ourselves safe from harm. And Iconic FM, the UK leader in facilities management is going to share some useful tips that will help you make your workplace even safer and reduce the risk of fire.
Fire Prevention Tips To Make Your Workplace Safer
Planning- to prevent fire hazards in the first place takes careful planning. From ensuring that you have a fire awareness plan, to installing the latest fire safety equipment and fire doors, an experienced facilities management team can help.
Identify Risks- there are many factors that can lead to a fire and identifying these fire safety risks is the first step in preventing them. Look for areas that are vulnerable if a fire broke out and make these areas safer for your employees by removing the risk.
Strong Emergency Response- create a strong emergency response so your team knows what to do in the event of a fire. Many times, people will become frightened and confused when a fire breaks out and not know what to do.
Fire Safety Equipment- from easily accessible fire extinguishers and fire alarms, to fire, heat and smoke detectors, fire doors and more, having proper fire safety equipment in place is important. In fact, something as simple as installing fire doors throughout your building can prevent the spread of a fire, containing it to one area and saving the lives of everyone inside your building.
