    Maintaining workplace fire safety – personal injury lawyer in Meriden

    When you first set up a workplace it is key that you know how to make it safe from fire and flag up any hazards to protect your employees from injury. However, after this it will still be necessary to maintain the fire safety of your workplace so that nothing is damaged or becomes unsafe over time. A workplace which is not maintained can be as dangerous as a workplace which was never brought up to code in the first place.

    • Write a fire safety plan and distribute it. Make sure every office has a fire safety plan and a map which shows all of the closest fire exits. This means that even if there is a fire your employees will know exactly what to do to get to safety and keep the building safe.
    • Remove flammable rubbish. Paper, oil, wood and cooking grease are amongst the items which should not be allowed to build up in your bins. Make sure these are taken outside on a daily basis and the areas around the indoor bins cleared up.
    • Keep exits unlocked and unobstructed. If there is a fire then you need to make sure that people can easily get out of the building when they need to. Although it may be more effort to lock up and unlock the doors every day, it could save a life.
    • Check your electrics. Make sure that the electrics are checked regularly so that you can be sure they are up to standard and that no cords are frayed or dangerous. You should also be keeping flammable materials (including paper) away from electric supplies and appliances.
