Fire Safety Bundaberg - Why it is so important
The Responsibility Employers Face Regarding Safety Issues
Fire Safety is an important consideration for anyone, but particularly for business owners. They have to be concerned not just with the protection of their investment, but the safety of their employees and any customers or clients that may be on the property at the time of an emergency. Fire Safety Standards have been established to assist them with being prepared for any situation that may present itself.
Fire Protection Equipment
Fire Protection Services include suppression systems, smoke and heat detectors, and portable fire extinguishers that every company must invest in for their location. These will need to be inspected regularly and re-inspected after repair if necessary. Commercial Fire Protection will vary depending on the size of the business and type of industry they are involved with. Additional equipment may be needed and could include, but not be limited to, fire blankets, breathing apparatus, and fire hose, and reels with accessible hydrants.
Understanding Evacuation Procedures
An evacuation plan must be in place, in writing, and made familiar to every employee. Multiple plans may be needed depending on the nature of the emergency. It is expected that all businesses be prepared for fire, injuries and rescue operations. Hazardous spills, bomb threats and armed confrontations, as well as all types of natural disasters, should also be considered. Every employee must be familiar with the process of handling these situations. This includes identifying the situation, assessing the risks, and implementing the plan for control, containment, or evacuation.
Providing Employee Fire Safety Training
Employee Fire Safety training is probably the most important training that any company will provide because it is the most common hazardous scenario. All employees should be trained at the time they are hired to know how to handle small fires and be aware of when they must evacuate. All evacuation plans should be familiar to every employee, and random drills should be performed. Refresher courses and first aid classes should be standard training for everyone.
The Health & Safety Act
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1984 established codes of practice that help any business owner to understand what their responsibility is in regards to keeping individuals safe in every circumstance. All business owners and supervisors must be familiar with these codes in order to remain compliant with the law. While it is never possible to prevent all accidents, these laws help to save many lives every year. The more comfortable members of management are with these procedures and regulations, the better the chances are for avoiding any type of costly tragedy.
