Business owners are wise to reduce the risks to their business wherever they are able, and one of the best ways to do this is by increasing their preparedness for a commercial fire. Fires can break out for a number of reasons, but reducing your risks and being prepared can go a long way in protecting you, your staff and your investment.

In order to assist local business owners in their preparations, we have compiled our top commercial fire preparedness tips in order to provide a quick reference sheet. Simply checking up on applicable fire codes, creating an escape plan and being aware of your specific risks will be extremely helpful in your fire preparation efforts.

Fire Safety Tips That Are Essential for Business Owners

Follow code guidelines and inspection schedules. Checking up on commercial fire safety codes is a great first step toward your business’ fire preparedness efforts. These codes are set up by the National Fire Protection Association and cover things such as fire exits, equipment inspections and other precautions you can take within the workplace to be prepared.

Identify your specific risks. Every business has general fire risks as well as industry-specific fire risks that they should be cognizant of. This includes things such as processes, chemicals and equipment that may put you at a higher fire risk and should be guarded against accordingly.

Create (and practice) a fire evacuation plan. If your business includes employees that work in the building, a fire evacuation plan is a must. Make sure your staff knows how and where to exit the building should a fire start, and host regular drills so everyone has ample practice before a real-world fire scenario occurs.

Have regular fire safety seminars with staff. Hosting fire preparedness seminars with your staff and reviewing key fire safety efforts will help everyone focus on fire preparedness throughout the day. Make sure everyone knows the location of fire alarms and extinguishers and is well aware of the various hazards and safety methods implemented around the office as well.
