Fire in the workplace can erupt without warning, spread quickly and have deadly consequences for your organization. Follow these guidelines for staying safe:
* Keep your workspace clean. Eliminate clutter – boxes, papers and other combustibles – that can provide fuel for fire. Don’t store anything inflammable near a heat source such as machinery or a heating vent.
* Maintain your equipment. This can prevent problems arising from overheating or damaged electrical systems.
* Watch your wiring. Frayed electrical cords and damaged outlets can pose hazards. Also, make sure your electrical panel is accessible and be shut down quickly.
* Keep exits clear. Don’t let boxes, desks or other obstacles block exits or sprinklers.
* Train your people. Hold fire drills regularly so your people know what to do in case of emergencies.
* Store chemicals safely. Look at the labels on paint, cleaning solutions and other chemicals to determine their inflammability, and store them accordingly.
* Check your fire extinguishers. Make sure they work, and teach your employees how to use them – but instruct them not to fight a fire that endanger them.
