Fire Escape Diagram
To keep building occupants safe and help them escape in the event of a fire, you should have a basic floor plan diagram placed on each floor. This diagram should be in a visible area that is frequented regularly (like a busy hallway, waiting room, or common meeting area). The guide should contain the location of stairway exit routes, manual pull fire alarms, and portable fire extinguishers.
Fire Systems Maintenance
If your fire system is not working properly, the result could be disastrous. To make sure everything is operating as it should be, have your fire system inspected regularly by a professional. This should include fire sprinkler inspection, smoke detector tests, and fire alarm maintenance. If any component of your fire system is malfunctioning or is not working optimally, have it fixed immediately.
Fire Safety Training
It is wise to perform regular drills with all the occupants in your building to make sure they understand fire evacuation procedures. Company managers should be encouraged to train employees on how to prevent fires, how to evacuate calmly and quickly, and where to gather once outdoors. If anyone has trouble evacuating due to blocked-off exits or other hazards, the issue should be noted and addressed immediately.
