Safety should always be a top priority. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you own, you always need to make sure your employees are safe and secure. Here are some important fire prevention tips for your office.
Plan & Practice
Employees should always know what to do in the event of a fire. There should be designated meeting places for employees when the fire alarm goes off. It should also be determined what are the quickest routes for employees to safely exit the building. In addition, there needs to be maps and signage throughout the building that mark where you need to go. Routine fire drills are the best way to ensure everyone knows where they are supposed to go.
Do whatever it takes to prevent a fire from occurring in your office. There are probably all sorts of fire hazards littered throughout your office. There should be a set of rules in place that prevents employees from bringing in additional fire hazards into the office. For example, there should be no scented oils or candles brought into your office building. There also should be routine inspection for possible fire hazards. You may find there are overly hot appliances, frayed power cords, and too many power strips being used in one area.
Fire Safety Items
If a fire does occur, you want the office to have the proper fire safety equipment. There should be adequate fire alarms and sprinklers throughout your office. These fire safety items should be routinely inspected to ensure they are up to the proper standard. It is in your office’s best interest to have routine inspections done by a professional. In addition, there should also be extinguishers and first aid kits.
