Commercial Fire Damage Restoration

SERVPRO of Greater Sussex County is always concerned about the safety of its employees in the event of a fire.  

Now is a good time for you to review and remind your employees of safety rules. A few simple steps will help identify and reduce risks:

  1. Assessing your buildings for risks — I’d make that a visual inspection tour
  2. Reducing clutter and keeping escape routes clear
  3. Storing flammable chemicals under lock and key
  4. Locating heat-producing equipment, even coffee-makers, away from flammable material
  5. Checking building security to prevent possible arson fires
  6. Enforcing no-smoking or designated area rules
  7. Checking fire extinguisher service and replacement dates
  8. Ensuring employees know how to operate extinguishers
  9. Enforcing rules for the use of spark – and fire-producing equipment
  10. Checking the operation of fire and smoke alarms

It’s even more important that employees know what to do if a fire does break out.  Even if it’s not mandatory, you should have a written emergency action plan that includes details of evacuation routes, location of assembly points, procedures for raising the alarm, and, if appropriate, a written list of individuals and their responsibilities.

As much as everyone loathes them, evacuations should be practiced at least once a year. It’s a good idea to alert employees of an intention to have a practice drill but not to tell them exactly when it will happen.
