It is unfortunate how many fires occur in business facilities every year. In many cases, they can be attributed back to pure negligence. Lack of training and any disregard for basic fire safety practices can be catastrophic. Be sure to take all the necessary steps and procedures to ensure everyone’s safety. With that said, here are some critical points about fire prevention in business facilities.
Have A Fire Safety Plan
Do you have a rock-solid fire safety plan? This is not something anyone should take lightly. A fire safety plan needs to be well thought. Responsibilities should be assigned across the board. For example, every team leader could be in charge of taking attendance of their department when everyone is outside.
Attention To Emergency Exits
Emergency exits have saved a countless number of lives over the years. They are required by law and for good reasons. It is vital to ensure that all emergency exits signs are visible from all angles in the office space. There should not be anything in front of these signs that could potentially obstruct a person’s sight of them. They also need to be checked periodically to ensure they are still illuminated. Light bulbs will eventually burn out over time, so it is necessary to keep an eye on them.
Train All Employees
Fire safety training is always a good idea. New hires should need to be lectured on fire safety practices in the office. Many companies are even making employees take in person and online courses on fire safety. This will help ensure that everyone is on the same page in the event of a fire. All employees should know exactly how to exit the building and where to go when they are outside. Fire drills are the best way to ensure everyone knows where they need to go.
