How to Maximize Fire Safety and Productivity in the Workplace
- Identify Workplace Hazards
A Fire Safety analysis checklist can make a huge difference for a company. This checklist allows a business to identify and assess risks and plan appropriately. The checklist must center on the following concerns:
1. 1. Equipment
Identify and assess the equipment and appliances that workers are using for their daily tasks with the potential dangers it can impose.
2. 2 Environment
Evaluate the environmental conditions that may cause fire, accidents and injuries.
3. 3. Employee Behaviors
Examine the daily employee behavior that may cause unfavorable incidents
When hazards are identified, it is important that the employees are informed of these dangers. It is advised that accidents and injuries are recorded as well as the costs associated with them. This statistic will give a better data-driven approach in implementing improvements.
- Invest on Fire Safety Equipment
A fire safe workplace need appropriate equipment and system. Here is a list of common fire safety equipment:
· Fire Blankets
· Fire Hose Reel
· Fire Doors
· Emergency Exit Lighting & Signs
· Fire Escape Ladders
· First Aid Kit
· Fire Sprinkler System
· Fire and Smoke Alarm System
- Develop a Company-Wide Fire Safety Training Program
Installing fire protection equipment is not enough to keep the business safe. Make sure that employees are properly trained to use fire safety equipment. A fire extinguisher will help put off fire, but if it is handled by untrained hands could place the company into greater danger.
- Keep Emergency Exits Clear
No one can ever tell when an emergency will happen or when employees need to evacuate the building immediately. It is important that there are emergency exits throughout the workplace. Emergency exits should have signs clearly posted and all employees must be aware of the locations of all exits. These emergency exits should never be blocked at all costs.
