Workplace Fire Prevention

What Are The Fire Risks Within a Workplace and How Can You Minimise Them?

Indoor Workplace Fire Prevention or in Office Spaces

  • Paper. One of the most common and major fire risks in the office as it is highly flammable and regularly kept in large quantities. To avoid paper fires, we recommend you to recycle often or go paperless wherever possible. Where this isn’t possible, keep your paper stocked in a cool place and organised manner.
  • Electrical Devices. One of the most obvious and detrimental fire risks, especially when kept your devices are kept in poor condition. They are known to spark and ignite at any given moment. For these reasons it's crucial, and compulsory by law, to have up-to-date PAT tests on all electrical supplies and devices. Sensible storage and positioning of electrics are, similarly, key to workplace fire prevention.
  • Poor Compartmentation/ Unsuitable Fire Doors. Fire doors are an indispensable part in the prevention of spreading fires. They are a major factor in minimising damages from workplace fires. We offer multiple fire door services to ensure that your business is safeguarded by functional and reliable fire doors.

Fire Prevention in Factory Spaces

  • Overheating and/or sparking machinery. It's extremely important to keep machinery in a well-maintained condition in industrial working environments. Machinery should be regularly checked and afforded a suitable rest period between usage. As always, appropriate health and safety procedures must be followed to ensure workplace fire prevention. We, therefore, recommend regular fire risk assessments to designate your ideal locations to conduct explosive and heated work, like welding and fabricating.
  • Flammable Substances. Flammable chemicals and liquids pose a unique fire hazard to factory workplaces, especially considering the large-scale volumes they are stored in. It is vital that they are kept in an appropriately cool and secure locations to minimise the risk of exposing them to combustible sources. 

Outdoor Workplace Fire Prevention

  • Materials. The key element of outdoor workspaces is to ensure the correct storage of potentially combustible materials. Packaging materials or wooden pallets, for example, should be disposed of quickly or stored in clear designated spaces. Hot weather, alongside accidents and arson, are all contributors to many outdoor workplace fires.
  • Pressurised Containers. Similarly to material safety, the key to workplace fire prevention when working with pressurised containers is to ensure they are kept in cool designated areas. They must be kept away from active machinery and concealed from direct sunlight to avoid combustion.
