Protecting Your Business From Fire Hazards

3/13/2019 (Permalink)

Business owners carry a lot of responsibility. As a business owner, one of those responsibilities is considering plenty of safety factors regarding risks to your business, staff and visitors. One thing that will need to be addressed is fire prevention.

Protecting Your Business From Fire Hazards

By focusing on fire risk assessment, fire prevention and staff education, you are taking some of the many steps that will help reduce the chance of a fire breaking out.

First, make an assessment of any fire hazard risks in your facility. To aid you in this step, in some areas, local governments may offer a visit from a fire marshal to work with you in identifying these risks and providing guidance on your fire prevention plan.

You’ll want to make sure that the right fire protection equipment, such as automatic sprinkler systems, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, are in place on each floor.

Finally, you must consider the safety of your employees. By creating a fire plan and taking time to review it with your staff, you’ll be making sure everyone knows what to do in the case of a fire. By conducting fire drills at least once a year and reviewing evacuation plans and routes as well as the location of first-aid kits, your fire safety procedures will remain fresh in their minds.

Despite best efforts with fire prevention and safety tips, the worst could always happen at your business. If a fire has damaged your business, SERVPRO® of North Huntington is available to help make it "Like it never even happened."
