Whether you’re an employee or the business owner, fire safety should take top priority in your business training. In the United States, there are between 70,000 and 80,000 workplace fires each year. Over 5,000 have resulted in injury and 200 end in death. These are startling statistics, but why beat around the bush? The fact is that most workplace fires can be prevented. Believe it or not, only 15% of them are caused by outside forces. The rest – human carelessness or neglect.
Training your personnel is key to prevention. Teach the basic knowledge and preventative measures to your entire staff and encourage teamwork. Safety programs are important. Vital equipment and hazard recognition, response, and prevention will keep you, your staff, your customers, and your business safe.
Have fire safety equipment available and conduct fire drills on a regular basis. Fire extinguishers should be checked frequently. Have the correct fire extinguishers available for putting out small fires. Train your employees on fire extinguishers. Leave the rest to the fire department.
