    What liquids should you keep away from fire?


    Some liquids are more flammable than others are. A good knowledge of flammable materials, and knowing which to keep away from fire, is integral for workplace fire safety. Good fire safety can minimise fire-related accidents at work.

    What to keep away from fire

    Depending on your line of work, you may come face to face with flammable liquids on a regular basis, without even knowing. Of course, some professions are higher risk. For example, chefs need to be particularly vigilant as they are often working around naked flames for long periods.

    As a rule, some flammable liquids to keep away from fire, include, but are not limited to:

    • Nail varnish
    • Pesticides
    • Paint solvents
    • Diesel
    • Oil
    • Lighter fluid
    • Spray paint

    When working with liquids of this kind, it is imperative that you ensure you keep away from fire.

    When things go wrong

    If your employer or a colleague was working with a flammable liquid and didn’t keep away from fire, causing you to suffer an accident at work, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

    When you are at work, your employer has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety. This means that if you suffer an injury through no fault of your own, they are likely to have failed to meet this duty of care and can therefore be held liable.

    Of course, all accidents and injuries are unique, which is why at Accident Advice Helpline, we offer a free initial consultation. During this consultation we can discuss the foundations of your claim and try to determine where liability may lie and your eligibility to claim.
