Fire can create huge destructions in the workplace. If it’s not too bad, it causes minor injuries or none at all. If it’s a major one, it results in serious injuries and even fatalities.
In reality, it’s impossible to completely get rid of fire hazards in your worksite. But that’s not to say that you can’t do a number of things to control these hazards.
Fire prevention in your workplace consists of four steps:
- Implement a program that includes preparation, prevention, and recognition of fire hazards.
- Make sure you practice proper handling of combustible and flammable material.
- Maintain safe housekeeping practices that reduce the risk of fire danger.
- Always keep adequate fire suppression equipment in your work area to extinguish fire before it goes out of control.
