Enterprises are vulnerable to a number of threats, and the fire is the most common of them. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, on average, a fire department responded to a fire somewhere in the US every 24 seconds in 2019. Reducing the risk of a potential fire at the enterprise is one of the most important things managers can and must do to protect employees, customers, and property.
What is a fire prevention plan?
The first step enterprises can take to ensure fire protection is to create a fire prevention plan. The main goal of such a plan is to identify and control fire hazards before they occur and maintenance of fire prevention measures. This document should list where all the fire extinguishers, alarms, and other fire-fighting equipment are in the enterprise location, describe potentially hazardous materials, equipment, and tools, which are used in work, as well as note measures in the event of a threat and sequential steps of evacuation.
