Fire Safety Procedures Save Lives

Aug 23, 2008
If you are in charge of safety at a company or business, you'll find that one of the most important things that you can do is to practice routine safety drills. This will help ensure the safety of your employees should any problems arise and you'll find that this is a good way to get everyone on the same page as far as what to do in a real emergency goes. No matter how large your company is, youll find that regular safety drills are a must, and as your company grows bigger, you'll find that it is more important than ever to make sure that everyone knows what to do.

When you are looking to make sure that everyone is briefed on what proper safety procedures entail, you'll find that you need to make sure that the safety procedures are introduced early and often. For instance, you'll find that briefing new employees on safety at their orientation or in an induction pack can be quite helpful. Keep in mind that you should also emphasize this when training and that a safety handbook should be available to the employees at all times to make sure that they will be able to move forward with any evacuations that might need to happen

Remember that safety doesn't begin and end with evacuation. For many employees, all they need to worry about is how to get out of the building and how to make sure that they will be able to reconvene for a headcount. You will also need to remember that you should ensure that all fire alarms should be checked on a regular basis (at least once a month), as should all routes out to safety be checked to make sure that they are still cleared. Remember to make sure that all fire extinguishers are full and in working order and that if you work in a chemical environment that you should look for the right containment procedures to be met.

When there is a real emergency, remember that people won't be too inclined to look for their handbook. Instead, make sure that you mark routes to safety and that you take the time to really consider what you can do in order to make sure that they can recognize it. Have good signs put up, and make sure that the people who are looking forward in this fashion will be able to see the signs and that they are placed in an obvious way.

Remember that as a company, it is your first priority to arrange for the safety of your employees, and you can do this by making sure that everyone is educated when it comes to an emergency. Take the time to really think about what you are going to do when it comes to emergency situations and consider how to get this information across to your co workers.
