One More Time about the Importance of Fire Safety Measures at Enterprises

One More Time about the Importance of Fire Safety Measures at EnterprisesAccording to U.S. Fire Administration, 10-year trends for fires and fire-related injuries have decreased. However, the trends for fire-related deaths and dollar loss have increased. People still don’t take fire preventive measures seriously enough. Especially at enterprises where the risks are higher. Fires in businesses can result in substantial property damage and endanger hundreds of lives. Here are several steps that are essential while implementing the fire safety policy in the workplace.

Constant control of potential problem areas

There is a number of common hazards at any enterprise that is likely to be the source of a fire. It usually concerns machines and equipment, various electrical appliances and cords, flammable, HVAC systems, and more. All these potential problem areas should be regularly inspected and maintained to identify any malfunctions at the earliest stages.

Ensuring proper and functioning fire-fighting equipment

Every business should have functioning fire-fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, sprinklers, etc. The service life must be clearly tracked. And of course, such equipment must be constantly maintained.

Emergency plan and employee preparation

Preparation is one of the most important elements of a fire safety policy. Each enterprise must have an emergency plan. Moreover, all employees must be instructed in emergency procedures. Regular training, fire drills, and reminders are essential. Also, it is important to make sure the emergency and evacuation plans accommodate employees with disabilities.

The role of mobile solutions in fire safety policy

It is important to understand that these measures aren’t for getting leadership, managers, and all staff in trouble and providing additional load — they contribute to a safe and successful workflow. Nowadays there are solutions to streamline and simplify fire preventive measures. Fire inspection apps are a real godsend for enterprises.

Tips to Use While Performing Workplace Safety MeasuresSafety always comes first

Regardless of industry or field of activity, workplace safety should always be a priority. It’s about keeping employees healthy and workable as well as avoidance of legal risks. Many business owners and safety managers are looking for new and updated ideas and tips to keep daily workplace safety. Here are some of them.

– Keeping tidiness and cleanliness. It is not only a matter of convenience and pleasantness of work but also a part of safety. For example, littering and cluttering a space can restrict access to emergency exits or firefighting equipment. Also, slippery, dirty, or sticky floors can contribute to injuries.

5 Steps of Fire Extinguisher Inspection

5 Steps of Fire Extinguisher InspectionA properly working extinguisher could save many lives. To ensure that fire extinguishers are in good working condition, their inspection should be conducted monthly. Businesses can bring external professionals or train their own employees as part of an overall fire safety strategy. It is critical that employees know about the most common issues, identifying during an inspection, and knows how to respond accordingly. Here are 5 mandatory steps of proper fire extinguisher inspection.

1. Visibility and accessibility

Ensure a fire extinguisher is present in the area, and it is easily visible. It should be easily accessed during an emergency. Also, prevent the extinguisher from being moved and damaged.

2. Physical state

Closely check overall condition, labeling and physical defects of the extinguisher. Metal parts should be free of any signs of damage, as well as serial number and other notes should be readable. Check a secure connection of all extinguisher’s parts. Ensure a proper condition of hose without any cracks. The pin locks prevents accidental discharge of the extinguisher. It also should be checked.

3. Pressure gauge

Check the gauge to ensure the needle points to the green area. This means that the extinguisher is fully charged and ready for use. The needle in the left red zone means that the extinguisher is undercharged, and the right red zone signals a danger of being overcharged.

4. Maintenance or inspection tag

Ensure the extinguisher has a maintenance or inspection tag with regular marks.

5. Inspection report

Besides the mark on the inspection tag, the general inspection report should be created. It usually contains summarize observations, any comments, name/signature and date.
