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.

Estimation Techniques and Updated Job Estimator App for Fast Estimations in the Field

One of the most important parts of the project

Estimation is an extremely important part of dealing with any project. Poor estimation can blow a project budget and extend timelines, frustrating clients and the team. Therefore, due attention should be paid to this process.

There are the following estimation techniques:

– Top-Down Estimation. Businesses usually use this technique early in a project. The essence of top-down estimation is in determining the project budget first and then dividing it up between different stages or tasks. This is a quite suitable estimation technique for small projects that allows project managers to let a client know whether their budget will work for the project and specific tasks. However, it is not accurate and it is mostly based on the assumption. The top-down estimation technique also doesn’t account for possible changes in the project and the budget.

– Bottom-Up Estimation. In the bottom-up estimation technique, each part is estimated individually and then summed up to determine the total cost of the project. It is the most accurate estimation due to a lot more information about the project on hand and a full understanding of the requirements. This technique is suitable when the scope and components of a project are clear. Among its disadvantages are the time-consuming and requirement of a quite huge effort and resources to get such amount of information.

– Analogous Estimation. With this technique, the budget of the new project is based on the previous one. However, it works if the previous and new projects are similar. It is a great approach when all the manager need is a rough number. Analogous estimation is fast and doesn’t require a ton of information. However, it is worth remembering about the risks and a large share of inaccuracy.

– Three Point Estimation. This technique involves taking an average of three scenarios of estimation: best case, worst case, and most likely. Managers can adjust a special formula for such an estimation process. This technique takes more time and some specific knowledge but delivers a more accurate estimate.

A solution to optimize estimations in the field

Snappii understands that accurate estimations set the stage for a thriving business. Therefore, we have created the Job Estimator app to generate professional estimates in minutes without paperwork. The app provides the pre-made mobile estimation form, automatically makes all calculations, allows users to generate and send reports, and more. You can find more detailed information about the Job Estimator app here. Moreover, there is a short video demonstrating how it works. Recently we have updated the app with some new features.

1. All the jobs, tasks, items, and equipment are now automatically saved from all the forms for future usage

2. Users can choose between hourly rate and sq ft rate

3. The time spent and items costs on a project are summed up when generating an invoice

4. Increased number of lines for the equipment table

5. Currency selection

Hurry up to download the Job Estimator app in App Store or Google Play and try these updates. Also, feel free to send us your feedback.
