Every business be it a small or large, requires a fire evacuation plan. But do any of your employees understand what is it and how it works? How many businesses have emergency fire drills? Not many!
No one can correctly predict, how, when, and where a fire could break out. From any of the fire safety regulations and equipment requirements, the fire extinguisher plays an essential role in fire protection; which is why you must always make sure it is in good, working condition.
Fire protection is a complete network of fire equipment together that works to protect people and facilities from fire hazards.
How would you respond to a fire emergency in your business premise? It is essential for every business owner keeping their employees safe.
A commercial kitchen is highly prone to fire due to its exposure to high temperatures, flames, sharp equipment, slippery floors, flammable oils, greasy surface and so on.
If you are a business owner of any commercial property, you know how much essential to protect everyone who works within the organisation. It is by law to protect your assets as well as your employees from any hazardous events including fire.
The importance of a timely and well executed fire protection strategy cannot be ignored, especially when the flames are rising in the vicinity of a workplace, the results can be devastating.
Implementing safety in retail and household environment is very crucial, following the recent series of fire breakouts in Australia. Last year, there were 1,565 preventable house fires reported in Melbourne. They resulted in loss of lives and a property damage of almost $30 million. This highlights the risk of fire outbreaks and devastatingly fatal damage they can cause.
Although most of the fire extinguishers that are in place in Melbourne work in the same way, at Australia Fire Protection /AFP Groups, we recommend the user to check the instructions before deploying a fire extinguisher in the case of fire.
Knowing how to use a fire extinguisher can help keep you safe in an emergency while you wait for the help to arrive.
