Maintaining fire-fighting equipment should be on every company’s agenda. Fire is one of the leading causes of property loss in the United States. A report released by the US Fire Administration in 2015 stated “an estimated 377,900 building fires are reported to fire departments per year. These fires were responsible for around 2,634 deaths, 12,525 injuries and over $7 billion in property lost”.
Fire is the leading cause of property damage in the workplace. If not properly prepared, the result can be serious injuries, or even fatalities. Fire prevention, although usually neglected, play a vital role in the life of any enterprise.
There are usually two elements in fire safety. General Safety measures include informing employees which route to go in case of an emergency, safety behavior in workflow and having periodic fire drills. Fire Equipment Safety measures check fire extinguishers and other tools to make sure they can still perform in a crisis.
