Commercial Fire Safety Checklist
Is Your Southern California Business Fire Safe?
With the hustle and bustle of the greater Southern California area, remembering proper fire safety in places of business can often go unattended. To keep your place of business safe, we've consulted with LAFD and chosen three categories which are important no matter the size or type of workplace.
- Electrical Equipment
This category can be a leading cause of commercials fires if electrical appliances in the workplace are not properly maintained. Regularly check that appliance wires are in working order and no wires are exposed or frayed. In addition, ensure all lighting appliances are appropriate for the work environment. Excessive heat from an inappropriate lighting source can ignite a flame.
- Access to Fire Equipment
It is important to make all staff in your workplace aware of the designated place for fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers. In addition, regularly check manufacture labels and replace these instruments when necessary.
Finally, when evacuating the facility is necessary it is highly advisable to ensure exit routes are established and kept clear of obstruction.
These three points will help you and your team to keep the place of business safe and in working order. For more information please visit your local county fire safety website.
